There are several risks that you run if your business does not use inventory management software. These range from wastage to non-compliance risk.
Shortages and Surpluses
Your most popular items move very quickly through your inventory. If you do not have clear numbers on how many of these items are in stock are where in the supply chain they are, you run the risk of making the wrong decision when placing orders. Therefore you could end up with a shortage or surplus.
Not automating your stock management leaves the door open for human error and may lead to lost or misplaced items. This creates unnecessary confusion for you and your staff.
What’s more, if you have a warehouse and hire seasonal staff over the Christmas period, they will need to act quickly in a system they are not familiar with and waste time looking for items.
When a product’s expiration date is not written into a smart software, it is very difficult to keep track of and make sure the right products are prioritised for sale. This can lead to wastage and losing money invested in that product.
This refers to the risk that is run when a distributor does not comply with the regulations that their suppliers follow. When a product recall happens, you run the risk of dispatching recalled, no longer suitable for sale, items.
