About Infant Crisis Services
Infant Crisis Services serves more than 1,200 babies and toddlers in central Oklahoma each month. They rely on volunteers and staff to collect donations, make purchases, raise funds and distribute necessities to babies and toddlers in need.
INFANT CRISIS SERVICES
“No baby should go hungry”
Infant Crisis Services provides life sustaining formula, food and diapers to babies and toddlers in times of crisis…Because no baby should go hungry.
The Business Challenge
Infant Crisis Services makes purchases and receives donations from many sources. Volunteers and staff then put together kits that are delivered to babies and toddlers in need. Inventory information was unreliable until end of month inventory counts were done. A new system that could be learned easily by volunteers and that could keep track of real-time information was needed to better serve those who rely on Infant Crisis Services.
-Alex Buchner, Facilities Coordinator, Infant Crisis Services
What Infant Crisis Services did Before AdvancePro
Diapers, food, and formula were counted manually and tracked on spreadsheets. Time consuming inventory counts were conducted at the end of every month.
The AdvancePro Solution
AdvancePro provided Infant Crisis Services with a total end-to-end solution that is used daily for critical tasks including vendor order management, donation tracking, kitting of packages and bar code scanning of products that are delivered to clients. Infant Crisis Services also benefits from the real-time reports in AdvancePro that they generate at the end of every month to guide their decision making.
–Alex Buchner, Facilities Coordinator, Infant Crisis Services
The system that AdvancePro has implemented for Infant Crisis Services provides significant time savings and rich real-time information, allowing for an increased focus on providing life sustaining products to those who need them most.
