Software for Inventory Tracking: Here’s What to Look For

Congratulations – you’ve finally decided to kick your Excel spreadsheets to the curb and invest in software for your inventory tracking needs. That’s a smart move for eliminating waste and costly errors. And the right software most certainly will raise the bar on your company’s efficiency. So which product do you choose? While the price point is undeniably important, ease of use and flexibility probably outweigh price in the long term. For your inventory tracking efforts to succeed, you need maximum buy-in from among your stakeholders. If your software for inventory tracking is too complicated and requires extensive training to master, it’s safe to assume that your employees won’t use it. When it comes to any new process, the simpler, the better.

Simplicity extends to the customization capabilities of your inventory management software. A product that demands conformity to a one-size-fits-all solution likely will leave your employees frustrated. With that in mind, you’ll want to look for a solution that’s as customizable as possible, allowing you to track and manage your inventory exactly how you want today, and in the future, as your needs change.

You also want to be on the lookout for a product that allows for unlimited users – without nickel-and-diming you for the privilege. The ultimate success of your inventory tracking processes is directly proportional to your ability to loop every one of your stakeholders into the conversation. When everyone’s talking, accountability and accuracy increase. Guesswork and gaps are eliminated.

With Asset Panda, you get everything on your wish list, and much, much more.

You can also verify within seconds such details as for whether you’ve already purchased an item, the exact location of any item and its condition.

You’re entitled to an unlimited number of users with Asset Panda at no additional charge, which empowers you to bring all of your stakeholders into the loop. Asset Panda is incredibly intuitive and user-friendly, requiring no special training to master. Our philosophy is that you should be able to track your assets any way you want.
