Eliminate Manual Gate Pass Process with MLAI Materials Management System (MMS) / Material Gate Pass Software

In a facility, tracking the movement of material through a manual material gate pass process is cumbersome and time-consuming. There are multiple levels of paperwork involved. There is always a little extra complexity when it comes to capital goods, which is why the approval workflow differs from the normal flow. An approval process is further delayed if the person that is responsible for approving it is not present.

A software that customizes to the user's needs and has an extensive set of features, is an intelligent application that digitises the entire process of a material's movement, whether the material is returnable or not, outbound or inbound. As an example, you can raise a material transfer request on a digital form with custom fields and send a notification to the approver as soon as it has been approved. Approvers can allow the material pass to be downloaded on their mobile phones at any time regardless of where they are located, saving them time and effort.

Returnable Gate Pass (RGP) & Non-Returnable Gate Pass (NRGP)

There is a returnable gate pass that is issued for materials that leave the premises and are returned (or materials that enter your facility and need to be returned). There is a requirement to issue a non-returnable gate pass to material entering the gates of your facility not existing (or to materials that exit your premises and are not to be returned).MLAI Materials Management System (MMS) / Material Gate Pass Software automates every step of the RGP and NRGP process. Many materials can be used in an office or factory, or a warehouse or distribution centre. They can be a small asset or capital good. It is possible to eliminate all paper logs and track the materials from the beginning to the end with all the details of each material. The creation of a gate pass is so simple that anyone can use it. You can easily add or remove approvers according to your requirements, see material pictures, send reminders and alerts, or check detailed reports and analytics.
