A Fast-Growing City Automates and Optimizes Inventory Process for More Accurate, Simplified Budgeting

About the Client

Woodbury, located in Washington County, Minnesota, is part of the Minneapolis-Saint Paul metropolitan area and is one of Minnesota’s fastest growing cities.

The Challenge

Despite using a fleet information management system, Woodbury was experiencing limitations with reporting, which reduced the effectiveness of the program and accuracy of billing. This made the year-end inventory process a huge pain point.

The Solution

The City of Woodbury adopted Collective Data’s fleet management solution to manage their fleet and related parts inventory. As a result, Woodbury leverages the software to conduct monthly inventory counts and reconciliation so they can better manage their inventory and budget in real-time, all year long. Fleet management enabled Woodbury to optimize inventory levels, increase parts availability, and ensure regulatory compliance for inventory management.

Solution Features

  • Inventory valuation reporting 
  • Barcode scanner integration 
  • Parts inventory monitoring and optimization 
  • Real-time data on actual vs. budgeted inventory
“With our old system, we struggled to close the loop and were typically $50K to $80K in the hole at year end and scrambling to allocate those changes. With Collective Data, we don’t have that issue. Our inventory and billing allocation associated is up to date, allowing us to accurately account for each part.”
