Inventory Management Software Overview
What is Inventory Management Software?
Inventory Management Software provides a central hub for retailers, primarily ecommerce or multichannel selling operations, to manage the flow of goods and eliminate inefficiencies in the movement of inventory between locations. Products in this category generally include modules for order fulfillment, procurement, and shipping in addition to inventory control and management.
Implementing inventory management software allows companies to better manage their inventory levels, which becomes convoluted when there are multiple locations or bundled/kitted products. The software manages and tracks inventory and can predict demand, which helps prevent overstock or out of stock situations. It can help automate purchasing and shipping. Finally, inventory management software helps with the management of vendors, orders, suppliers, fulfillment, and warehouse locations.
Inventory Management vs. Order Management, Supply Chain Management, and Warehouse Management Systems
Generally, inventory management software is more affordable than omnichannel order management and retail suites, which also encompass marketing, payment processing, and customer management. Supply chain management (SCM) suites include logistics, product lifecycle management, and enterprise asset management in addition to inventory control and ordering systems.
Software billed as inventory management is a wiser choice for smaller businesses, compared to SCM suites which are designed to manage supply across many warehouses or a complex logistics network. Capabilities of inventory management systems are very similar to warehouse management systems (WMS), though WMS’ are often targeted at distributors while inventory management software is most often targeted at retailers; however, this is not an absolute distinction.

Enterprise level users are always advised to work with the vendor for a custom quote.
