The food distribution industry (35%) including restaurants, supermarkets, and others that rely on food on a daily basis, need powerful inventory management for a smooth workflow. Excess inventory in the warehouse for a food distribution industry means wastage of the products and loss of money. On the other hand, not having enough inventory can eventually lead to financial setbacks.

Two of the main challenges that the industry faces are global distribution and 24-hours order processing. Keeping track of records and inventory at all times is vital for e-commerce players.

If you are managing a large e-commerce inventory, then having the right products at the right time is crucial. Inventory management system gives you a clear idea of which products need to be ordered or how many are in stock. You can keep track of the items as soon as they come in/move out of the warehouse. Below are the seven major steps of an Inventory management system
To raise a PO, first you need to have the products with your before selling. But what if the product is not available at that time? This is where inventory management becomes crucial in forecasting the demand and allowing you to stock the inventories.
Once you have asked the vendor to ship the products, the next step is to do the quality check to avoid any returns and replacements in the future. Also, if there is any damaged product you can immediately ship it back to the vendor and get it replaced.
You may have hundreds or even thousands of different product categories in your warehouse. To ensure easy tracking of the products, the next step is labeling every shelf and every aisle in the warehouse. This helps you in keeping track of your inventory and accessing them quickly.
As soon as the order is placed, you will receive a notification for fulfillment. The backend inventory management system will automatically reduce inventory based on the number of items ordered. This is an effective way of streamlining your inventory, especially if you handle bulk orders.
Based on the details provided by the inventory management software, online retailers print an invoice for that order, pack the goods as per the instructions of the customer, attach delivery details and shipping labels to the package and hand it over to the shipping department for assigning Airway Bill Numbers (AWB) for each package.
Once the package is out for shipping, the customer will be acknowledged with a message containing the AWB number so that they can track the location of their order. Once the package is delivered to the customer, the order is marked as fulfilled.
If the customer finds that the package delivered to them is damaged, he/she places a request to either return or replace the product. Every company has its own rules and regulations to handle your returns.
Our inventory management solutions help you to manage, track, and optimize your entire stock with complete ease. You will also be able to track the product availability in the inventory and manage order fulfillment accordingly.
