Black Friday 2016 set records for online shopping, with 3.34 billion spent on Internet-based purchases ($5.27 billion if you include Thanksgiving), and that number is only expected to grow in the coming years. With those kinds of numbers, real-time inventory tracking becomes a must-have rather than a nice-to-have. If you can’t track your inventory at the very second you need to, you could run the risk of out of stock messages on days like Black Friday that may provide some of your highest revenues during the year.
With the right software, it’s easy to track inventory in real time. Schedule your free consultation with an inventory expert when you contact Scanco online or call up directly: (877) SCANCO-1.
Real-Time Inventory Improves Customer Service
The key to selling more over time is to provide superb customer service. Customer service is more than how you answer the phones or handle returns. It’s also about maintaining adequate stock levels so that you minimize (or eliminate) out of stock messages.
Real-time inventory tracking can help you prevent selling out of popular items. You can set messages to alert you when stock levels drop below a pre-set threshold, enabling you to reorder promptly. If you do happen to be out of stock, you can communicate promptly with customers to alert them and suggest substitutions.
