Optimizing Efficiency with Custom Inventory Management Software

Inventory management is very important in the world of  business. So what is inventory management you ask? Inventory management is knowing what products a business has in its warehouse and where they are. There’s plenty of off-the-shelf software that can help a business keep track of this, however, most businesses have a more complicated management system for their inventory that handles more than simply keeping track of product location.

Custom Inventory Management Software is designed and developed to be tailored to a business's specific needs. There will be no unnecessary features on your software, making it much easier to use and navigate. Top businesses use custom software to integrate with their back-office systems, optimizing inventory management. All businesses have different inventory and it is beneficial for optimization to make inventory management custom.

Benefits to Your Business

  • Custom inventory management software integrated with a businesses back-office system can ensure that the asset value on financial reports matches what is physically in stock without manual intervention and reconciliation

  • Your business will collect accurate data for inventory on-hand to satisfy consumers and investors

  • This ensures consumers get the freshest product and investors know if there is working capital tied up in inventory

Software Solutions has extensive experience in developing custom inventory management software. A manufacturer of modular hotels, school dorms, and houses came to us with a problem they were having with their current system. The staff here created custom software to track parts used on jobs to create a more efficient, less time consuming system to organize daily tasks. The custom software managed parts coming from vendors with different prices and notified workers when inventory was running low. All the information handled created PO's with the best prices. The software also included a bar-code scanner running on a mobile phone to create a touch-screen interface that conveniently displays relevant info.

Software Solutions tailored a custom inventory management system for a lighting company as well. Working with this company's management team, we designed and implemented a web-based system to manage every aspect of the business from sales to order processing to efficiently optimize their inventory needs.

Let us help you with your custom inventory management software.

Are Your Passwords Secure?

Everyday online, private accounts are breached due to weak, easily hackable passwords. Many passwords are so weak that they are useless due to their simplicity. The Federal Trade Commission reports that consumers identity theft is their number 1 online concern. Using a password for multiple sites is the equivalent of giving someone a skeleton key to access your online accounts.

Every year, Splashdata releases a list of the worst passwords. Some items included on the list were children’s names, curse words, sports teams, and sequential keys on a keyboard.

Online security expert Mark Burnett says,

The bad news from my research is that this year’s most commonly used passwords are pretty consistent with prior years. The good news is that it appears that more people are moving away from these passwords. In 2014 the top 25 passwords represented about 2.2% of passwords exposed. While still frightening, that’s the lowest percentage of people using the most common passwords I've seen in recent studies.”

Biometrics is a new, revolutionary concept for password protection that has become more popular in recent years. Biometrics identifies distinctive and measurable characteristics of individuals. Physical characteristics identifies fingerprints, palm veins, face recognition, DNA, palm print, hand geometry, retina and iris recognition, and odor/scent. Behavioral characteristics relate to human behavior such as typing rhythm, gait, and voice.

Although this is all very technical and the general public typically doesn't have access to this sort of technology, there are steps you can take to make sure your online accounts are safe from people trying to access your information.

Customizing a password for each of your accounts is a safe and easy way to keep your information secure. Think of a keyword you will use for each website. For example, let’s use “Smile.” When creating an account, use that keyword plus another that identifies the website. “Smilebooks” would be sufficient for the Barnes and Nobles website. To make this password extra secure, adding numbers and special characters help. “Smilebooks975&” is much harder to guess than something you've been using for years for all the same accounts because it is personalized for this specific website.

Password Tips

  • Don't use personal information in your passwords that people can easily guess

  • Use lowercase and capital letters

  • Include special characters and numbers

  • Don't use the same password on multiple sites
