Lowering costs, improving cash flow, minimising on excess or out of date stock whilst improving on customer service is every company’s dream. If you could do this all with the use of just one system, even better.
Inventory management software enables all aspects of your inventory much easier to manage, allowing you to increase distributor efficiency and reduce time and financial costs.
When looking for an inventory management software system, there are a number of areas of functionality to consider. An effective system should aid in demand forecasting – ensuring you have appropriate stock at the correct stock levels when needed. The software system you choose should also include lot billing which enables you to specify purchasing methods and customise billing for each customer. An increased level of customer service in turn increases your value to your customer.
The real time updates of inventory software management are another important feature. If you cannot trust the information on screen to be accurate then the software is ineffective. Real time updates save the staff from having to rush to the warehouse to check on inventory, instead they can tell a client immediately if their product is in stock or not.
Whether you are based out of one location or multiple, inventory software management provides inventory data you can trust. It can easily track and manage inventory matters, company-wide. If you work over multiple locations, you can ensure the right level of stock is at the right location and make transfers from one to the other if needs be.
Inventory management needs not be a hassle, with inventory management software you can increase your customer service, reduce carrying costs, minimise obsolete inventory and greatly improve cash flow – all with the use of one system. Even if your employees you do not thank you for making their job easier, your customers certainly will.
