Whether you are starting a small business or already run one, it is reasonable to think it’s realistic to keep track of your stock and inventory movement manually by keeping records in spreadsheets or with a pen and notepad. A monthly audit or tracking movement is straight forward if your business is relatively small and it is manageable, but what happens as you grow? Sage 50 inventory management is a solution that can cater for all these processes and much more.
As the turnover of stock increases and product lines are extended, variations of products, promotions and plus added other variables can all become too much.
Knowledge is power
As the saying goes, ‘knowledge is power’ and the better insight and knowledge that you can gain over your inventory, the better informed your choices and decisions can be. It is important to keep on top of capital that may be tied up in stock, turnover, movement, wastage and responding to customer trends and demands.
As a small inventory management business, whether you work in business to consumer or business to business, there are several consistent demands and pressures. Finding the time to re-assess your stock control system may be a challenge and can often be an aspect that is pushed further down your priority list. While this is understandable, it is important to assess how many problems a barcode system like Sage 50 inventory management could solve for your business, including:
- – Knowing how much stock you have
- – Knowing the location of your stock
- – Enabling quick and accurate stock takes
- – Keeping customers informed on stock and delivery
