Check your system everyday.

You’ll save a lot of time in the long run if you check your system daily and correct mistakes right after they happen. Try a checklist like this one:

  • See that received products are entered into the system. It helps to maintain a folder for your supplier delivery notes with two sections: ‘received’ and ‘not entered’. Then, at the end of the day, make sure the ‘not entered’ section is empty.
  • Check that shipped orders are recorded. You can double check this by creating a goods out area where you keep all packed orders. If, at the end of the day, this area is empty, there shouldn’t be any open shipments in the system either.
  • Complete any transfers between stores or warehouses. They are as important to manage as goods in and goods out.
  • Process any remaining returns or exchanges. Finalize customer returns taken during the day and make sure the inventory is accounted for:
    • If you have a place for quarantined inventory, reconcile what’s there with your software to make sure you aren’t losing anything.
    • If the products are suitable for resale, get them back ‘on hand’ as soon as you can.
