Some business owners start using Excel for their inventory management
in their early days but it doesn't scale with their business. Inventory Management Software grows with the business. Consider the following case study of smart bench manufacturer.
Include, based in Croatia, is a fast-growing startup that manufactures smart benches, branded Steora
. Founded by Ivan Mrvos, the company started the production of the benches back in 2015. As people fell in love with the new concept of a bench with phone charging capabilities, wireless internet, and lighting, the demand grew.
They were using Microsoft word to invoice customers. Keeping track of their inventories was difficult, and occasional errors would arise, plus it was too time-consuming. The solution was automating the process of inventory management through the Backstore inventory management software.
Changes were immediate. They could know if the materials for construction present in their stores were enough to meet new orders, if not the software would alert them. These resulted in enhancing efficiency, and they could spend time scaling the business across borders.
They forecasted that demand would increase, implemented the inventory management software and ensured that they could exploit their growth potential. But, the best part was that they implemented the software solution early, and results were a phenomenon. You can read more about their growth here
