Solutions ITW Introduces Solutions Media Scanner™ Software

Posted by Elias Bustos on Oct 28, 2019 2:07:27 PM

Goodwill stores receive thousands of media items per year. Items such as books, DVDs, music CDs, video games, and more. While getting these donations is a great thing, it provides a unique challenge to Goodwill employees.

Media items take a lot of labor and expertise to determine the price, or if it should even go out on the floor at all. Labor that does not result in a sale is lost labor and finding as well as training employees with the level of expertise needed to handle media items is expensive.

Goodwills need a way to maximize media revenue by speeding up processing and eliminating the learning curve.
