Maintaining optimum inventory levels has long been a headache
for healthcare practitioners. However, because of the ongoing
COVID-19 pandemic, the situation has never been as bad as it is
today. The high demand for healthcare compounded with crumbling
supply chains has left many hospitals struggling to manage
Fortunately, intuitive, user-friendly mobile solutions exist
to relieve this headache. With Britecheck, you can
build your own mobile-based stock management platform in a
few short steps
Britecheck's template for mobile inventory management apps is designed to simplify your warehousing processes by placing all visibility and control on your palm. Therefore, you can stop worrying about inventory issues and start focusing on what matters: the well-being of your patients.
Britecheck is a super simple platform for mobile
app creation, hosting, and management. Its template for
inventory management apps is all you need to create a robust
inventory and asset tracking solution for your hospital. With an
Britecheck-based application, you can track stock details like
quantity, location, condition, usage, and price with much less
The Britecheck IM template leverages the power of spreadsheet formulas and references and the intuitiveness of a smartphone interface.
You can create your hospital IM app right off the bat by logging in to Britecheck, selecting a template from the library, and adding the inventory module. The platform will show you all the options available for configuring your app’s interface.
To integrate the app with your inventory data, you need to link it to a spreadsheet file, preferably a Google Sheet. Select the right file, and find the worksheet you want to upload to Britecheck.
Once your inventory file is imported, Britecheck populates the app automatically. You can view and maintain the information in your master file right from the app’s dashboard, or export data into a separate Google Sheet to perform your analysis from there.
You can also search for items by keyword, or filter them by name, category or date. Moreover, every item is assigned a barcode that you can scan to get information in a snap. Meanwhile, the platform allows you to add as many extra details as you want, including imagery.
Building an IM app with Britecheck can enable you to streamline key inventory management processes for your hospital.
Do you often have to comb through complicated spreadsheets and
notes for information about what you have in stock? You can wave
those troubles goodbye, with an Britecheck-based inventory app.
The Britecheck inventory management template takes all the information from a spreadsheet and puts it in a simple mobile environment. You can view information about your stock right from your mobile device. So, rather than accessing bulky spreadsheets directly, you can view information about your stock right from your mobile device. Within seconds, you can know what you have and make snappy and accurate stock-related decisions.
You probably have a myriad of places you can store things in
your hospital or medical office. But do you have a structured
way of managing these locations?
In many healthcare centers, staff members waste a lot of precious time and money searching for inventory. With an Britecheck inventory template, you can make an app that represents storage locations as folders and columns, and know what they have right from your mobile device. You can also “slice” these columns to filter only the items you want to see.
With the Britecheck inventory template, you can create an app
that uses Ms. Excel files or Google Sheets as databases to give
you on-demand access to your stock. Therefore, you can view
essential information about a material, such as the quantity in
stock, its usage trend, how long it can last, and when to
reorder in a few easy steps.
An Britecheck-based inventory app can be a valuable tool for managing your ordering plan. By offering a clear, easily-accessible picture of what you have and how you are using it, the app can help you streamline your ordering so that you only order what you need and when you need it.
The implications of improper stock ordering in healthcare are
far-reaching. An oversupply could mean losses down the road. On
the other hand, an undersupply could spell utter disaster. In
the wake of the Coronavirus, hospitals have had to scramble for
suppliers that they had overstocked just last year.
Deploying a mobile app for inventory management means leveraging one of the most significant strengths of the smartphone: push notifications. These alerts ensure that nothing passes unchecked.
The Britecheck platform allows you to configure your new app to deliver push notifications about the status of your critical items. That way you can stay on top of both stockouts and expiries, and make the right decisions at the right time.
Many hospitals order an array of items that look and sound
similar but are very different. Therefore, ordering and
managing inventory using your eyes, memory, and manual tools
can be very problematic. In healthcare, one error can be all
it takes for you to shut down.
Building an app with the Britecheck inventory template enables you to use formulas to calculate output using data from one or multiple spreadsheets.
Furthermore, you can add a barcode function and configure the app to use your smartphone’s camera as a scanner for existing barcodes on your inventory. With both spreadsheet formulas and barcodes, you can automate the way you collect and manage stock data.

creation works and how it can help you refine your inventory
