Electronic Inventory Control

Accurate inventory is an absolute necessity in today’s complex world of blasting. Rigorous federal, state, and local requirements force blasters to maintain more records than ever before.


As a pioneer in the drilling and blasting business, VDC evaluated the inventory control situation and identified a cost-saving opportunity to streamline this process within the production cycle—all while eliminating wasteful paperwork.

The blasting industry is highly specialized, so there were no turnkey computer systems to be leveraged. VDC decided to develop an in-house, custom inventory control system with computer software maker, Great Plains Dynamics.

First, Great Plains’ field representatives visited VDC sites to view blasting operations and understand the needs of employees. Meanwhile, the VDC IT department was researching which laptop computer would best serve the company’s needs.

New laptops computers, equipped with the new system software, were delivered to VDC’s blasting professionals. The new solution enabled VDC professionals monitor inventory at each site, they also could integrate the system into the current accounting software, shifting the inventory control responsibility back to accounting personnel at VDC’s corporate offices.
