Tis the season to be crazy for the majority of business owners, manufacturers, and distributors alike. With most retail companies integrated online and in-store it’s important to know stock levels and have software and tech in tip-top shape.
Big online stores like Home Depot in America have 2300 physical stores and run tests early and later in the year to see if their software can handle the volume of influx over the holiday season.
BrainStorm CEO Ty Osborne says that businesses must respond quickly to consumer demands and make cost-effective decisions to remain competitive.
So if you’ve run out of time to test your software, utilise this time to analyse!
Analyse how your inventory flowed, from quoting, sale, warehouse, picking and packing, distribution, and customer service.
After you’ve analysed your data, find the gaps and see what’s not working. For example, were there issues with the correct stock coming out of your warehouse? If so, get the right Warehouse Management Solution and ensure you know exactly what stock is incoming and outgoing.
The right solution for one business won’t necessarily work for another, so follow the below steps to work out what tech your organisation needs.
Remember to TAFF;
Find the gaps
Find the best solution.
We wish you the best of luck this holiday season and if you need assistance in finding your solution we are happy to help. We implement and develop technology to fit a business vision, helping the business to become the master of the technology, not the servant to the technology.
