Invigorate Sales: Ideas for Using Inventory Software
April 4th 2019 15:00:00 PM
Inventory software doesn’t sound like a sales tool, but did you know that you can use it to boost sales?
Depending on the seasonality of your business, this may be a busy time of year or it may be a slow season. If it’s busy, your inventory software can help you keep popular items in stock to maximize sales. And if it’s a slow season, you’ll be able to move sluggish items by identifying them for special sales and clearance events.
Busy Season: Identify Top Sellers
Use your inventory software during busy seasons to:
- Re-order popular and fast-selling items early to keep them in stock
- Proactively identify items your best customers want and need, and contact them to see if they want to increase their orders
- Maintain consistent inventory levels to maximize sales peaks
Slow Season: Identify Sales Items
During slow seasons, inventory software helps you identify aging items to push them out through clearance sales or special deals.
- Identify aging inventory and begin the discounting process
- Update stock counts and reorganize bins and shelves
- Clear out the return area and scan items back into inventory
- Review reports for sales patterns to predict best sellers
