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
