Do you know where your inventory is?

With e-commerce increasingly becoming the way that people shop, brick and mortar stores are feeling the pressure of trying to get customers in the door and buying their inventory. As a manager, you should have the complete picture of what is being wheeled in on your material handling carts so you can keep track of inventory and know what needs priority for the storefront and what is lagging behind.

According to Chain Store Age, one of the key factors to have successful store operations is having a strong inventory management plan. Because you’re able to have visibility into what’s available for customer demand and what is lacking in supply, you can better serve the consumers who make the trek to your store. Customer satisfaction is a major aspect of getting return buyers, so it’s important to make sure you’re meeting their needs as soon as they enter.

Proper inventory management not only helps with customer satisfaction, but it also can help keep costs down. According to Shopify, if you have a better picture of what you have in your backroom, you’re able to make more accurate orders because you have a sense of what is moving fast through the store and what you should order less of.
