Small Business Inventory Software Helps Track Inventory Across Multiple Locations

August 8th 2019 15:00:00 PM



With the demand for warehouse space outstripping supply, many companies secure warehouses outside of their normal business zones. They may find themselves juggling two, four, or more warehouses just to obtain the lowest possible rent and contain costs. That’s where small business inventory software can help.

With the right small business inventory software, it doesn’t matter whether customer orders draw from products housed in one, two, or six warehouses. Small business inventory software tracks not just how many of each product are in stock but their location, too. This can help you manage inventory across multiple warehouse locations and keep your website updated, too.

Small Business Inventory Software Choices

 When it comes to finding the right small business inventory software, you have many choices. Consider the following as you review the various software packages on the market.

  1. Which software integrates readily with your enterprise resource planning (ERP) package? New software that needs custom programming right from the start sets you up for surprise expenses like hiring someone to write the code. Instead, find software that works immediately with your system.
  2. Is it cloud-based? Cloud-based inventory software enables you to upload data immediately using any internet connection. It virtually eliminates waiting for updates and ensures up-to-date stock counts.
  3. Can it run on any device? Device-agnostic systems ensure that you can use your current equipment to scan inventory in and out. Newer inventory systems use the optical scanners inside cellphones and tablets to read barcodes. Apps downloaded to devices make them both user-friendly and a snap to install.
