The Whole Story on Store Inventory Software

I’ve decided that the most entertaining way to talk about store inventory software is to use lots of clever wordplay like I did in my blog post “Part Man. Part Machine. Parts Inventory Software.” You might think I’m all about silly gimmicks and wordplays in my posts, and you’re partly right. It’s all part of my plan to sneakily inform you about inventory management without you realizing it because you’re having so much fun.

Let’s get started, shall we?

What’s in Store?

So it begins. You can take the question “What’s in store?” two different ways: “What products are in my store?” or “What’s in store for me if I use store inventory software?” These are both valid questions.

Before you can decide how many products you need to order, you first need to figure out how much inventory you currently have. Store inventory software helps you count your inventory quickly and keep your records updated from then on. This is just the start of what’s in store for you. Here are several other things you can expect to happen after you start using store inventory software.

Storing Up

Store inventory software helps you figure out when you need to store up or cut back on certain products. Demand often changes depending on the time of year, economic conditions, weather and other things that are out of your control. Knowing when to keep more or less inventory in stock is important because it helps you avoid stockouts and keep your money from being tied up in idle inventory.

Keeping Store

If you’re keeping score (or keeping store, for that matter), you know that numbers matter in business. A lot. Store inventory software lets you use barcodes and barcode scanners to update your inventory records as soon as products are ordered, received, shipped or sold. Then you always have access to the latest numbers you need to know to make swift, smart business decisions.

What Store Could You Ask?

What more could you ask than to have great inventory management with store inventory software? How about the ability to manage inventory in more than one location? With store inventory software, you can track sales in different locations so you can figure out which products are hot sellers in specific areas. Then you know what store you could ask to transfer products to another one that’s low on those products.

What’s Behind Store No. 1?

The answer to the questions “What’s behind door No. 1?” and “What’s behind store No. 1?” is the same: Store inventory software. Strong retailers are built on a solid foundation of sound inventory management. They use store inventory software to rise to the top and protect their position once they reach the No. 1 spot.

    While it’s true that using an Inventory Management System is absolutely crucial to better business operations, it is just as crucial to make sure you are using the right software and system that works best for your store. About three months ago we started using a QB integrated software called Rapid Inventory. Works great so far and syncs with my QB pro pretty nicely. If we end up hating it we just cancel, it is a month to month subscription with no contract. Just wanted to share since everyone’s business has different needs!

    • Francie,

      Good point. You’re right that it’s essential not just to use inventory management software, but to use the right inventory management software. Thank you for the recommendation. I recommend people also check out Fishbowl Inventory because it’s the most popular inventory management software among QuickBooks users.

      Thanks for sharing your comment. Have a great day!

      Sincerely,
      Robert Lockard
