6 Tips for Tackling Physical Inventory Counts

Physical inventory counts are a necessary evil for just about any company that manufactures, distributes or sells products. They’re critical to a business understanding and managing its inventory position and creating accurate financial statements. But that doesn’t mean your physical counts need to be as time-consuming and painful as they are today.

Today’s fast moving goods industry thrives on efficiency. From supply chain management to financial management, 
there’s zero room for waste.

 When you think about the system you use to drive efficiency at your company, you probably assume that you’re covered because you have ERP software in place. But do you have the most efficient back-office solution possible? In order to maintain market advantage, it’s worth checking.

You’re no longer limited to the locally installed ERPs of yesterday. Today’s web-based ERPs live in the cloud, allowing for seamless updates and lower costs related to physical infrastructure.

NetSuite is the cloud ERP of choice for wholesale distributors for a variety of reasons. You’ll be able to manage the complexities of your business and scale with the ease of a cloud native platform.

What order management, inventory control and reporting workflows aren't being addressed by your current ERP software? How well do you understand what your current solution is doing for your business? (A great tool for figuring this out is our Navigating Change worksheet available below). It’s important to know what you actually need and to understand what your current software is (or isn’t) doing for your business.
