Inventory Planning is essential for small and midsize Distributors and Manufacturers. Everything revolves around inventory and every item in your warehouse represents a piece of data. The more you know about it, the better - how often it sells, how long it takes to replenish, and how much you need (and when). Even smaller businesses are now dealing with a global supply chain that requires a high level of inventory planning. If not done correctly, it can have a major impact on your warehouse and other parts of your business, while leaving customers frustrated. So, what steps can you take to recognize what you could be doing better?

Most of us realize that spreadsheets, while popular, are fraught with potential errors.

Many small and midsize businesses are burdened with obsolete systems they’ve been running since the day they started, or worse, a basic accounting program that cannot meet the challenges of a growing business. Even those SMBs with adequate systems for their size and markets may be lagging behind competitors because the system does not continually add functionality to support their evolving processes.
A software package primarily meant for accounting, like QuickBooks, can work well for a business when they are small and do not have very complex requirements. But if you’re growing beyond the basics and you need a system that incorporates and runs all areas of your business in synchronicity, then it’s time to begin evaluating a true ERP system that will scale alongside your processes and offer flexibility for future changes.
In a February 2016 Hartford Business article, leveraging modern technologies to maintain a competitive advantage was addressed, “At the center of this fundamental shift in IT are mobile and cloud-based technologies…this advantage is fueled by the emergence of cloud technologies.
