Small and mid-sized retailers often face challenges managing and tracking their inventory. Engaging a Microsoft Partner such as A BC Consulting Group to deploy Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (BC) and WMS Express warehouse management will give you the expertise and the tools you need for fully automating and streamlining your inventory management processes.
SMBs and Inventory: the challenges
Small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) often rely on manual tracking methods such as spreadsheets which lead to inaccuracies and limited visibility into their inventory levels. It’s hard to know what you have on hand until the reports are posted, and by that time, the information is already outdated.
Outdated inventory tracking methods lead to a number of issues including a lack of real-time visibility, limited demand forecasting, and inefficient processes.
Manual tracking methods often limit real-time visibility into your inventory levels. Limitations or delays in your inventory management system may result in overstock, stockouts, or backorders tying up resources and leading to the loss of customers and revenue.
For retailers with seasonal products or fluctuating demand, managing inventory manually and demand forecasting can be challenging. Manual inventory-tracking processes are time-consuming, labor-intensive, and subject to error. They put a burden on your staff and keep them from more profitable endeavors.
Any of these challenges can result in stockouts, overstocks, backorders, and lost sales, all of which will negatively impact your business and your brand.
