You don’t have to be a major retail chain to understand the difficulties associated with accurate inventory tracking. Efficiently tracking inventory can be a major hassle for any business, regardless of size. Businesses today are wasting countless dollars due to their lack of a streamlined automated inventory tracking system.
A recently released report showed that just 10% of all distribution centers and warehouses in North America use barcode automation for inventory control. This fact is easily understandable when you consider the large percentage of these businesses that would be considered small businesses. So why do so many small businesses rely on manual or spreadsheet-based inventory management systems?
Historically, inventory tracking systems were not priced or designed for small companies. Many of these early systems would cost thousands to purchase and install, and required a company to have a dedicated department to manage the system. In addition, many of these inventory tracking solutions had hidden residual costs for annual support agreements. Finally, many of these solutions could not be customized to support the unique requirements of small businesses.
In contrast, Wasp inventory management solutions are designed specifically to address the inventory tracking needs of small and medium businesses. Inventory software from Wasp is affordably priced for businesses of any size, and is engineered for easy installation and use – without a dedicated team to install or manage your inventory control software. Plus, Wasp inventory software is backed by free technical support for the life of the product, eliminating the expense of costly annual support contracts.
