I recently read a compelling blog entry entitled “Goods Management Made Easy With Inventory Management Software.” The author clearly has a passion for inventory management.
The author starts his blog post by naming many of the benefits of inventory management software. These benefits include the ability to maintain the right quantities of goods, and monitor product sales and purchases.
He says, “Whether you have a manufacturing unit or distribution cell, effective inventory management is most vital to ensure smooth business functions.” That’s exactly right. But one problem for small businesses is finding an inventory management solution that they can afford and that is a good fit for them.
“Companies from all over the globe spend millions of dollars on purchasing and implementing inventory management software,” the author notes. Most small businesses don’t have millions of dollars to spend on an inventory management system. That’s why they need to be very selective in their decision of which software provider to go with.
Inventory management software should have all of the features a company is looking for without being excessively costly.
A prime inventory management solution is Fishbowl. Fishbowl is the most popular manufacturing and warehouse management software for QuickBooks users. It offers the most features for a fraction of the cost of most providers. Plenty of small businesses have cut costs by using Fishbowl, thanks to its warehouse-streamlining capabilities and other features.
The bottom line is, as the author of the blog post said, companies must “Research and plan accordingly before installing any software. Maybe one type of software that worked for some other business type not work (sic) for yours!”
