Tracking your inventory using Warehouse Management software
When you’re running a retail business that deals in a lot of different products, you want to move them around fast and keep every vital location replenished and prepared to ship. The more items you’re working with, the harder it can be to keep track of them. Thankfully, retail management software is designed to help you access information about the status, location, and quantity of your inventory. Warehouse Management software offers an extensive and intuitive Inventory Status feature which helps you stay on top of everything product-related. Let’s take a look at some of its highlights.
- Perpetual tracking. The system offers a comprehensive view of the status and location of any goods being received, picked, packed, shipped, on hold, in quarantine or completed. This is good for figuring out where in transit an item is if a customer asks for an update or requests a cancellation. It’s also useful in the preparation process where you can figure out which location (warehouse, store, etc.) has the most of a certain product you need packed and shipped. This will cut down on time and effort spent
- Real-time status down to the SKU level. You’ll never have to wait for an update.
- Cross-dock feature. This feature operates without error and provides you with flexible movement control to get the ball rolling quickly.
- Receipt organization. You can separate receipts by client to examine orders at the individual level and help analyze sales and important clients.
