So, you’re looking for a new inventory management app this year? Good for you (and good for your business). Inventory management is one of the most often overlooked aspects of financial management. Your business inventory represents a considerable investment of capital. If you want to manage your business’ finances, you need to track your inventory.

As you’re reviewing various inventory management apps, consider the following: 

  1. Integration – does it integrate easily with your existing software? Check that any inventory management apps you’re considering integrate with ERP systems and other systems within your company. Scanco’s inventory management tools integrate with most popular ERP systems, making it easy to add it to your existing technology.
  2. Scalability – as your company grows, you’ll need more tools for inventory management. Make sure that any system you implement scales easily with your business needs.
  3. Training – how easy is the new system to learn? If you hire seasonal or temporary workers, a system that’s easy to learn is a must to ensure fast onboarding.
  4. Real-time updates – you don’t want to wait until the end of day for an accurate inventory county. Older systems rely on batch updates that are slow and cumbersome. Instead, look for warehouse inventory apps that update in real time so that you receive accurate and up-to-the-minute data on your current stock status.  

Your business inventory represents a considerable investment of capital. Make sure you keep accurate track of it with a warehouse inventory app from Scanco.
