Inventory Management Software: Customised to Help Keep Track of Your Inventory
Inventory management software is indispensable whether you interpret your inventory as being just your stock or your stock and equipment. There is many an inventory management software system available on the Internet. However, few, if any, are specifically tailored to the unique requirements of your business. Further, it appears with the bulk of them once you buy them you are left to your own devices. What you get from Orpheus Technology is custom inventory management software. The software we build around your business’ requirements. Not software you have to adapt your business processes to. You and your staff will be in total control of using it. But we still hold an “emotional” stake in it. So we will be only a phone call or email away if need be. We can develop a one-off report. We can tweak your system if it needs speeding up. Or literally, anything else you need. We will never be strangers. You’re not just investing in a software package. You’re also getting an “IT branch” to support it.
Before and After Computerization
Before computerization, things were done very differently. Given that you are reading this web page you are likely still tracking your inventory “by hand”. And you are more than aware of the limitations of manually maintaining your inventory. Many establishments would shut the doors for half a day to a day. All the staff would be called in whether they were rostered on or not. They would all start counting the stock in their assigned areas. This would be done as fast as possible. Every hour the doors are shut the business is losing money.
Now, look at the computerised system. Computers add to the count of a stock item each time a delivery is made. And subtract from the total each time a sale is made. The easiest way to make these additions and subtractions is to scan items in and out.
