Torrance, CA (PRWEB) July 28, 2005
bNet Software announces the addition of virtual inventory warehouses to automate management of product information from Ingram Micro and Tech Data. A single virtual warehouse can perform the work of dozens of data entry specialists, a gain in efficiency that levels the playing field for small and medium size companies struggling to compete online against much larger competitors.
Ingram Micro and Tech Data are both distributors of technology products, offering computers, software and electronics to resellers around the world. Resellers of Ingram Micro and Tech Data could have as many as 200,000 items in their virtual warehouses. In addition, bNet Software includes Ingram Micro's Spec Source, a collection of 40,000+ item images and descriptions to supplement the basic product information. Managing this much constantly changing data without bNet Software's virtual inventory warehouses would be an impossible task for small businesses.
Ingram Micro and Tech Data products are displayed to shoppers at the merchant's bNet Software eCommerce-enabled website, along with any other products the merchant wants to sell. When a virtual inventory item is sold, it can be fulfilled by Ingram Micro or Tech Data. The merchant does not have to stock or ship the item.
"Online sellers are rapidly moving toward the virtual inventory model," said Jeff Goldfield, senior eCommerce consultant at bNet Software. "In order to compete, small businesses need a way to add and maintain large amounts of inventory data efficiently. bNet Software's virtual inventory warehouses do this - and even more, they eliminate the need to buy and handle any physical inventory."
Complete inventory data, including pricing and availability, is downloaded nightly from Ingram Micro and Tech Data, and used to update the inventory databases of bNet Software's clients. The process is fully automated. New items are added to inventory, out of stock items are unlisted (if desired), and new sell prices are calculated, based on the reseller's own cost and desired markup.
