What If Darth Vader Had Used Inventory Management Software?

Imagine what would have happened in Return of the Jedi if Darth Vader had known about inventory management software. It would have been quite different than what really happened.

The Death Star in Return of the Jedi, copyright of LucasFilm Ltd.At the start of the film, the Death Star commander responds to Darth Vader’s demand to complete the new Death Star quickly by saying, “I assure you, Lord Vader, my men are working as fast as they can.” Vader quickly retorts, “Perhaps I can find new ways to motivate them.”

At this point, Vader might have added, “I’ve heard about something called inventory management software, which can improve the efficiency of our inventory storage and manufacturing processes so that we’ll complete the Death Star ahead of schedule!”

In science fiction, anything’s possible, right? But in this case it’s not fiction but fact that inventory management software helps businesses streamline their inventory control systems and reduce costs.

Of course, if the Empire had used inventory management software in Return of the Jedi then the Rebellion might have been destroyed and the Star Wars movies could have had a sad ending. Maybe it’s better that Darth Vader didn’t know about inventory management software, after all. But that shouldn’t stop small and mid-size business owners from taking advantage of it.

Inventory management software helps companies organize their warehouses and other storage units to maximize delivery speed. It also reduces the amount of time businesses need to spend on ordering and receiving new products thanks to barcode scanners and QuickBooks integration.

Fishbowl is the #1 requested QuickBooks inventory software. Visit the Fishbowl website for more information on how Fishbowl can help your small business save money.

Think of what Darth Vader might say if you don’t: “I find your lack of inventory management software disturbing.”
