While most have a good accounting system in place, many business owners still try to manage their inventory relying on memory or static pieces of paper, which are prone to mistakes. Deploying inventory solutions such as Wasp Inventory Control can significantly improve business efficiency and profitability.
Plano, Texas (Vocus) October 23, 2008
Small businesses can transform inventory tracking from a cumbersome expense into an efficient asset with Wasp Inventory Control v5, released today. The updated version of the inventory software, by Wasp Barcode Technologies, uses simple and proven barcode technology to empower small business owners to improve their business efficiency while providing a rapid return on investment.
Packed with new functionality, Wasp Inventory Control v5 helps business owners gain new insight into their inventory. This version offers new alerts, enhanced security, improved barcode label printing, additional reports, and enhanced data entry that speeds the receiving and check-out processes by locking down common tracking fields. The software's reports provide an accurate accounting of inventory, including costs, quantity, location, re-order points, and visibility into which items are moving.
"As CPA educators and accounting consultants to thousands of small businesses, our firm has become a big advocate of using barcode solutions to keep track of inventory," said Randy Johnston, partner for K2 Enterprises. "While most have a good accounting system in place, many business owners still try to manage their inventory relying on memory or static pieces of paper, which are prone to mistakes. Deploying inventory solutions such as Wasp Inventory Control can significantly improve business efficiency and profitability."
Many small businesses can achieve rapid payback of their investment in the software simply by accurately tracking inventory and establishing reorder points. Companies that implement this easy-to-use inventory control software solution can experience increased sales, reduced costs, improved customer service, and increased value of their companies.
Headquartered in Baytown, Texas, Process Control Outlet uses Wasp Inventory Control to manage the thousands of items in its warehouse. With Inventory Control, the company has saved more than $35,000 per year through efficiency improvements alone, after investing less than $2,500 to purchase and implement Wasp's solution.
"In just a few months, Wasp totally revolutionized our company," said Robert Gonzales, assistant director of marketing and communications for Process Control Outlet. "We have effectively cut our inventory operating costs in half. The product easily paid for itself in the first month."
The updated software, which is also available in complete solutions that include a mobile scanning device and barcode printer, offers the extensive features of an enterprise-level inventory control product without a hefty price tag or complex implementation.
"Businesses owners generally don't realize how easy and profitable it can be to implement an inventory tracking process," said Tom O'Shea, general manager of Wasp Barcode Technologies. "Automatic inventory tracking has a two-pronged benefit. First, improvements in efficiency can have a profound impact on reducing costs. In addition, access to accurate information can create opportunities for top-line revenue growth. By deploying technology such as Wasp Inventory Control to both save costs and increase sales, small businesses can position themselves to compete more effectively in today's challenging economic environment."
