Mass inventory management systems combine the superior accuracy of Neptune mass flowmeters with specialized software to bring all product flows under control. The system instantaneously tracks and balances mass intake against mass ouptput, providing key information needed to reduce shrinkage or product loss.
Mass inventory tracking provides real-time information that has significant bottomline impact through:
- Reduced shrinkage
- Timely ordering/purchasing
- Shorter billing cycles
- Faster inventory turnover
- Optimized revenue and cash flow
- Rapid payback
Easily configurable to individual bulk plants, the system can accommodate unloading from a variety of supply modes: from ships, pipelines, railcars or motor transports. Neptune Coriolis mass flowmeters measure every liquid phase flow and vapor return loop. This uniquely integrated approach tightens up inventory tracking by accounting for vapor phase return flows previously not measured, particularly significant in bulk unloading or bobtail filling operations.
One computer, interfaced comprehensively with multiple flowmeters, pumps, valves and sensors, displays data through our proprietary software (Microsoft Windows based). The software provides a detailed tabular log of every event, an instantaneous mass balance and total inventory position. Transaction information can be interfaced with accounting software for seamless data management. Managers can track status anytime, from anywhere, through remote monitoring and control capabilities.
