In addition, it has moved its solution to the cloud and has introduced an iOS app that lets customers check inventory levels and receive alerts if parts are running low, via their iPhone.
Spectech is a division of Stag Aerospace, which provides aviation parts for aircraft manufacturing and maintenance services to aerospace companies worldwide, typically to original equipment manufacturers that deliver subassemblies to the large aircraft makers. Spectech serves its customers by ordering required parts, tracking inventory levels and reordering components as they are needed, in order to ensure that assembly lines don't shut down due to running out of a specific part. The Spectech service also includes data analytics that help businesses understand how quickly their parts inventories are being turned over, and thus how quickly they need to have replacement parts on hand. In addition, says Chris Osborne, the firm's operations director, Spectech offers RFID solutions that function as simple but effective kanban systems.
