What is inventory control?
Inventory control is a method of warehouse management that includes the following:
- Integration for barcode scanners
- Reports and adjustments for orders and reorders
- Product descriptions, histories, and locations
- Detailed inventory lists and counts
- Variants and bundles
- Syncing on-hand stock with orders
Why do you need inventory control?
Many companies use inventory control to increase profits without having to invest too much and without the impact on customer satisfaction.
Types of Inventory Control Systems
When you can control your stock, you can have less inventory so that your warehouse is more organized and less costly due to holdings. You can expect improved cash flow and much more spaciousness in your warehouse. Just remember one motto when implementing inventory control: less is more!
Here are some common types of inventory control systems that are utilized in warehouses:
Organization is critical when it comes to arranging your stock. One way to be better organized is by labelling your inventory with SKUs that are easy to read. You can start with the original stocktake and then use inventory techniques to manage different movements and levels.
Quality control is a significant component of the inventory control process. First, pick a supplier with standards on par with yours, and then try some samples before establishing a more extended partnership. When you finally choose your suppliers, try batch tracking to monitor your stock and ensure it meets your standards.
Anticipating future needs from customers can be a challenging process. The best way to prepare for this is by implementing inventory forecasting. This type of strategy will ensure inventory levels are low but good enough to meet consumer demands.
Managing inventory properly is what makes a warehousing facility stand above the rest. At Rellius, we have developed the latest techniques to ensure that inventory is well-managed.
