Inventory Scanner Software: Simplicity, Power and Customization Are Key

When it comes to inventory scanner software, ease of use is everything. If your system is too complicated, you’re simply not to going to get the buy-in from employees, vendors and others. The need for such software is clear. No matter whether you represent a global retailer or a small operation, your customer service depends upon efficient, accurate inventory management. In today’s social media-driven environment, all it takes is a viral complaint or two to turn your day or week on its head. Customers shouldn’t have to wait for items that ran out of stock; nor should they find any expired items on your shelves. And if for some reason you don’t have an item at one location, your inventory management system should enable you to track down its whereabouts at another location in seconds, and give you the confidence to tell your customer when he can expect it. You also should be able to communicate with suppliers and vendors easily.

Standard inventory scanner software includes a separate handheld barcode scanner. Those scanners present a barrier to employee participation in your inventory system. Why? First of all, they can be expensive, causing you to purchase a limited number of them. Your employees who need to enter items have either got to hunt down the nearest scanner, or you simply have to limit the number of employees who use them. Those scanners also inevitably break down and require repair and replacement.
