Ware’s feature release now automates the cycle count process, giving employees more time to review the insights and data gathered by warehouse drones. Our drone-based technology captures images of all your inventory in the required locations and performs barcode recognition to compare it to the data in your WMS.

Once a cycle count is completed, you will be able to view detailed inventory data specific to each Scan Request.
