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.
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 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.
