If you’ve got assets and/or inventory of any quantity to track, choosing the right inventory software can have significant implications for your bottom line. Let’s say you’re a large organization with a presence in multiple regions. You’ve got to track inventory at each of those locations, and the value of those items is ever-changing, due to such factors as an item’s condition, the length of use, repair history and more. You need a means to view all of your inventory across all of those areas, analyze data and make decisions based not on guesswork, but on accurate, real-time data. The “old-fashioned” way of record keeping is a recipe for disaster. Excel spreadsheets not only don’t allow you that 30,000-foot view of your inventory; they’re also an open invitation for human error. All it takes is one typo to throw off your numbers – and that can lead to unnecessary costs, not to mention reduced productivity and increased frustration.
To track your inventory as accurately, efficiently and painlessly as possible, you need a product that adapts to your needs – and can continue to adapt as your needs change in the future. The best inventory software will be easy to use, yet powerful. You should be able to bring every one of your stakeholders – both inside and outside your organization — into the inventory communication loop without concern for additional per-user charges. Your data should be served up in real time, and you shouldn’t have to wait until you’re at the office to retrieve it.
