Supply Chain Solutions: Inventory Management

Get visibility, control and savings with inventory management solutions from Airgas, an Air Liquide company

Is there an easier way to manage your inventory?

Precise management of gases, welding and safety equipment and PPE is necessary to keep costs in line and your project safely moving forward but often requires a lot of your time to manage properly. Having the right tools available when and where you need them is critical to meeting production goals. A slow down to look for supplies or a stop in production because your current inventory management solution has failed and you’re out can be expensive.

  1. Minimize product shortages, gas loss and emergency deliveries needed to maintain production
  2. Get visibility into supply usage and achieve accurate forecasting
  3. Improve quality and safety with real-time cylinder data including quantities and expiration dates
  4. Optimize product distribution and utilization rates on the site by job or location
