Professional carpet cleaners need to stock and manage a long list of inventory. Although carpet cleaning looks like a simple task, the kind of equipment needed are quite complex. A wide range of chemicals are used by carpet cleaners including deodorizers, detergents, sprays, stain removals, sanitizers, spots remover and upholstery care. Cleaning equipment can range from simple vacuums to complex encapsulation and spotting machines. Professional carpet cleaners also have to keep track of hoses, rotary extractors, mobile carpet extractors, dryers, sprayers and truck mounts.

While the list of equipment grows as the business expands, it can get more and more difficult to stay on track with inventory management and asset tracking. With equipment always being moved around to different locations, there is the huge risk of losing or misplacing some of these. Losing equipment is a huge worry obviously, as replacing them takes away a chunk of the profit margins.

Manually maintaining and tracking inventory with the age old method of entering each equipment into an excel sheet or typing into the inventory management software is cumbersome. Most employees would prefer to concentrate on the job and not spend a whole lot of time in front of the computer typing in inventory.

Equipment in branch offices or other locations need to be also tracked to ensure they are not lost or misplaced. Physically visiting all these locations and maintaining an inventory is exhausting and impossible.
