Why Should I Use Cloud Based Inventory

01 Nov Why Should I Use Cloud Based Inventory

Cloud based inventory is not something of the new era. In reality, it has been around since the early 2000’s. Most businesses have moved from the in-house server based network and decided to “send it to the cloud”. If you have used any sort of CRM or many of today’s accounting online systems, you have used a cloud-based service. Why have you not tried sending your inventory management to the cloud?

There are many great benefits to sending your business operations – like inventory management – to cloud. Here a few:

  • Easily access your data from anywhere you have an internet connection
  • Eliminate the hassle of updates or hardware issues
  • Easily scale data storage based on your needs
  • Pay a manageable monthly fee rather than large upfront costs

Having your inventory all stored on the cloud means that you and anyone you need to can access your data anywhere at anytime. Always being in the know when it comes to your products allows you to scale your internal operations without having to invest large sums of funds upfront.

When you are choosing between different cloud-based inventory management software, make sure they have all the features your team needs to properly manage your business. Here are some features to consider while doing your research:

  • Easily create purchase orders for your vendors
  • Create orders for your customers
  • Barcode management on your computer and mobile device
  • Optimized for all your devices

Based on your business operations and industry, you may need additional features like a mobile application or social media integration. Whatever your company’s needs are, make sure you clearly define them on your search for an inventory management software.
