Even for a small business, tracking inventory can be a challenge. Sometimes it can seem that managing paperwork and updating spreadsheets takes more time and energy than growing your business. But you can’t afford to let inventory paperwork get in the way of serving your customers and reaching out to new clients.
If you’re manually tracking inventory on paper and spreadsheets though, that very process could ruin a customer experience – no one wants to lose an eager customer because there wasn’t enough product to ship.
