A leading large retailer had thousands of installed exit signs that were expiring. They were required to provide a complete inventory within 90 days so they could properly dispose and replace them. They turned to Solis Facility Solutions, a leading provider of lighting and electrical services to deliver a solution.
With approximately 1500 locations across the country, the home improvement retailer had over 30,000 exit signs that were quickly nearing their expiration dates. Before they could be replaced, the retailer needed to conduct field audits to inventory all the exit signs and report the results for each location within 90 days.
Historically, this type of inventory project could take 9 months due to the high number of geographically dispersed locations, reliance on multiple 3rd party contractors, and manual process of using clipboards, scanners and faxes or emails to get the resulting surveys to a central location. Further, this approach often resulted in significant rework, lost data, poor accuracy, and haphazard implementation.
