Digital Commerce 360 reports that nearly half of all small businesses do not have an advanced system when it comes to monitoring what’s entering and exiting their warehouse on material handling carts.

But that can create room for error, particularly as customer demand can create an unpredicted backlog and shelf life could cause inventory to go bad if it’s not sold.
The Huffington Post reports that proper inventory management should be a focus for all small businesses, as owners try to make sure they can keep up with demand while eliminating the chance of having a sunk cost of unsellable goods. By scanning and tracking every item that enters the warehouse, you can get a better picture of what should be made priority.
