consignment inventory.

Listen to your system.

To keep your inventory from getting out of control, it’s crucial that your actions match what your systems tell you:

  • If it says to pick from a certain location, pick from that location. No exceptions. If there’s nothing to pick, set that shipment aside and correct the system first.
  • If your software says you have zero of a product on hand because all of them are allocated to sales, don’t ignore the warning.
  • When a walk-in customer wants to buy the last of a product that was sold online a few minutes before, don’t sell it again. Instead, suggest an alternative. Being face-to-face puts you in a good negotiating position.
  • If you do have to bypass the system, make a note and fix the problem as soon as possible.
