Technology has transformed modern industry.

There are more people than ever sourcing and selling amazing products straight to customers, shipping fast and cheap. But customers are also savvier – expecting next day delivery, even same day delivery. Modern expectations that have a significant impact on stock levels, quickly putting the unsuspecting entrepreneur under pressure. Judging stock levels, and making critical ordering decisions, are the difference between a satisfied customer and one that will never return to your site. Many businesses have introduced stock control software. It’s necessary to allow mechanical, or automated, processes to take the heavy lifting off human shoulders.

What Are the Key Benefits to Your Business?

Automation

Stock control software saves on labour – a key benefit. Why pay someone to do a menial task, like keeping track of boxes of Skittles in a warehouse, when you’ll save time and money doing it automatically. People are suited to some tasks, computers to others. Monitoring stock levels, and placing orders when they drop beneath a threshold, falls firmly into the latter category. People suffer lapses in concentration, become tired and make mistakes. Machines suffer none of these flaws. This isn’t to say that it isn’t useful to have human involvement in stock taking. We need to be sure the system is functioning properly – that no stock has gone missing, been stolen, or otherwise unaccounted for. But for the main day-to-day grind of stock-control, machines are crucial.

Reliability and Speed

Automation’s more efficient, so a task will be done faster than by a person. Sometimes a lot faster. If you’re taking delivery of a new batch of stock, a bar-code scanner system might allow you to add items to your system in an instant with minimum labour. Stock control software also means greater reliability. If yours is a business that relies on maintaining stock levels, it’s vital new stock is ordered whenever existing stock levels dip below a certain threshold. With automation, you can ensure this happens consistently every time.

Integration

Stock control software links seamlessly with the other software that powers your business. For example, an Electronic Point of Sale (EPoS) system may automatically update stock levels after every sale. This ensures no time is spent waiting for someone to manually update stock levels. This allows your website, marketplaces, physical outlets and telesales to be in sync with one another. It make ‘stock outs’ a thing of the past.

On the point of sale, a customer’s order history would also be accessible, allowing their experience to be tailored and uniquely targeted to them. If you’re dealing with many hundreds of customers every day, it’s impractical to implement this level of targeting without involving automation. If this stock spreads out across multiple sites, integration becomes indispensable. Staff and customers will find out instantly if an item is available – an item that may be on the other side of the planet. This makes drop-shipping, where a merchant ships a product directly from manufacturer to customer without handling it, easy. Cutting you out as a middleman, it’s a great deal more efficient, reducing shipping costs and boosting profit.

Data

One thing that automated machines can’t quite yet be entrusted with is the ability to make decisions on a company’s future direction. But they’re capable of arming management with the data required to make informed decisions.

Khaos Control presents profits, margins, and stock levels over time, in the form of an easy-to-understand graph. So, you’ll see at a glance the trajectory of the items you’re selling, and understand each item’s profitability, so you’ll be best placed to act.

What’s more, it’ll preform automated analysis on margins, providing warnings when sales dip below acceptable levels set by you. This means you’ll be appraised of problems as soon as possible, and that you’ll be able to take corrective action, where necessary.
