The inventory is made up of the accommodation and registration of goods in the warehouse. The purpose of this work is to know the exact value of the merchandise and provide a set of basic information for defining the purchases and sales activity. Let us see how to better manage the inventory of a store.
The first basic step to do is to divide the goods. This step is very personal, depending on the store that you need to take inventory. For example, if you are managing a clothing store for women, you can divide the goods in mesh, pants and skirts, bags and so on until you exhaust all possible categories. Within this division, you divide again depending on which products are of higher marketing value and store them on a shelf for quick access while less sophisticated goods (eg in the case of the clothing store, the shawl or belts) on the shelves more high or less comfortable to reach. Now that you have ordered your stock, you just need to go to the registration of assets in a specific table you update from time to time.
The goods that you have must be counted and the data are then entered into a software or a table that will allow you to consistently have the situation under control. If your company is of a great size, it is better to rely on a precise and organized software that will facilitate the work: it is necessary if you need to manage a market or a task with a wide variety of goods. Otherwise, even a block of notes will even be sufficient. Remember that the table must be filled or updated from time to time. To achieve that you need to create the fields, according to the category, item description, item number and the stock, or the number of items remaining in stock. When all goods are well divided, to update the inventory will work really fast and easy.
The first time will take a while to put all the pieces together but for the next time, all you will have to do is simply insert the products of new type, delete the ones that are sold out and you do not intend to buy more and change the number of inventories for each one. The advice is to update the inventory of your warehouse every weekend if you have a small to medium sized shop. If you have a large company and the inventory takes too long, then once per month may be sufficient. Ideally, every time, print the table to keep track of inventory andso you can refer to it and gradually check what is added and what is removed.
