At Zatkoff Seals & Packings, we have been using our proprietary ZAP>IT inventory management system with hundreds of customers since the very first implementation in 1996. The innovative system has matured throughout the years, with technological advancements that include the transition from using a hard phone line to Internet connection, that allows for batch scanning processes. Today, ZAP>IT works as a re-engineered comprehensive, interactive system between our customers’ and our own ERP platforms.
“Our goal has never changed since the early days. The ZAP>IT system was initially developed to improve the flow of information between two companies by improving supply chain efficiency and managing downstream inventory to match consumer demands — and avoid production disruption. This seems challenging when analyzing business cycles, along with the cyclical indicators, but it’s achievable with the use of our ZAP>IT system.” says Gary Zatkoff, President.
We have important tools and systems that work in combination with various inventory analytics which allow us to provide critical assistance to our customers. We are able to minimize the risks related to having too much inventory during a downturn, which are then balanced with the challenges of maintaining enough inventory in the early stages of market recovery.
