3 Essential Software Inventory Tools for Your Mid-Sized Business

Implementing some efficient software in your mid-sized business is one of the best ways to boost your bottom line. The right software inventory tools will help you organize your business operations to run smoothly.

Purchase orders, a ticket support system, and good vendor management are the key to improving your inventory control system and creating a system that runs smoothly and effortlessly.

Purchase Orders

Purchasing item components or fulfilling work orders can be difficult if you don’t have a solid process. But with the right software program, you can create a process that accounts for every step of the way. Your employees can submit orders and you can review them to see what’s being requested and why.

If you see that certain items are being requested more often than others, the data provided by your software can help you implement an acquisition process to address those needs and reduce the amount of time your employees spend requesting them. Seeing what items your employees are ordering will also help you see what parts of your company are creating more demand, and which ones aren’t getting a lot of work. This will help you structure accordingly and put your effort where you’ll get the most bang for your buck.

Ticket Support System

Locating issues in your workflow is an important part of providing stellar service to your customers. When your employees submit a ticket for a purchase order or to report an issue, it’s an opportunity to find improvements in the way your business operates.

Creating customer ticket support will also help you identify issues in your product. If you start getting multiple complaints about the same issue, it’s a sign that something in your process is broken. Having this information will help you pinpoint breaks in the chain before they become company crippling problems.

Vendor Management

Having a good relationship with your vendors can help you ensure your acquisition process goes smoothly. Managing your vendor relations and seeing where you acquire your items from will help you identify any potential hiccups. If certain vendors aren’t delivering on time, or suddenly start charging you more with little explanation, having a detailed account of previous exchanges can help you figure out what happened.

You need some way to manage your vendors, especially if you have more than a couple supplying your business. Vendor communications can get complicated in a hurry. Your goods also need to meet certain requirements and certifications. You also need a way to track invoices and payments to make sure you don’t get behind.
