Inventory management is critical to any business and a crucial integration for your company’s success. Accuracy in tracking inventory down to the last item is vital for your business operations and accountability. Proper inventory management allows for a close and detailed watch of your products, so you’ll be able to know precisely what is selling and when. It also gives greater insight into future manufacturing, shipping, and business decisions.

The problem with inventory management is that it can become a major hassle for your company, mainly because it requires a large amount of offsite work. When inventory management becomes too much, Ranger3PL can provide storage and supply chain management services so that you can focus on the critical day-to-day of your business.

What is Inventory Management?

In the simplest of terms, inventory management is a business’s production process, from ordering to selling inventory. This includes the storing and usage of products, whether they are raw materials or finished products. There are several different types of inventory management, including just-in-time management (JIT), materials requirement planning (MRP), economic order quantity (EOQ), and day-of-sales inventory (DSI). Companies with complicated supply chains and manufacturing benefit the most from inventory management services.

Why is Inventory Management Important?

Inventory management allows your business to run smoothly, ensuring enough stock is always available to your customers. Not only is accurate stock tracking required in various industries, but it is also beneficial in the long run.

A significant reason why inventory management is essential is that it saves your business money. With accurate stock management, worrying about how many or few products you have becomes a problem of the past due to knowing the exact amount of inventory available. It identifies and follows trends, including what is selling out and what is not. With the ability to keep less stock at different locations and know where something is in stock, the money tied up in inventory decreases. It also reduces the amount of stock that is not getting sold. This offers an improvement to cash flow through your business.

Inventory management is essential because products can be followed from purchase to sale to the customer. It warns of a product shortage and ensures that stock is always available, so you keep all customers up to date, and they can order confidently. Customer satisfaction drives your business, and the best way to keep customers satisfied and coming back is by promptly fulfilling their orders with the correct products.

Why Outsource Inventory Management?

There are several reasons why outsourcing inventory management would be the most beneficial move for you and your business. The main reasons would be:

1) freeing up storage space,

2) not having to keep up with the advanced software as the inventory management provider will handle it for you,

3) more efficient order fulfillment, which will get your products to your customers faster, and

4) reduced money being back up in inventory.

A final reason for outsourcing is the ability to scale your business without worrying about getting a more extensive warehouse.
