How Oslo City Bike Overcame Their Logistical Woes with an Inventory Management System
The challenges of a growing business
Oslo City Bike faced challenges when trying to find a scalable software solution, that could grow in tandem with the company. Furthermore, they needed a solution that supported daily operations so the logistical challenges of growth could be dealt with.
Keeping an overview of inventory was especially difficult, a huge problem due to the company structure of Oslo City Bike: When the company was growing fast, a need for a better inventory mangement system that could ease their logistical load arose: We’re a micro-mobility enterprise.

We were also facing challenges keeping an overview of our inventory.
