Businesses, today, have many moving parts. Each part is integral to the whole, ensuring the business operates at maximum efficiency. Some of these parts, such as the sales channels, can be expanded upon as the business grows, or in order to help to grow the business. Adding an online sales channel is the next logical step for many businesses who have existed in the brick-and-mortar world for any amount of time.
As with any business decision, adding to the number of sales channels in which your business operates can affect other aspects of your business; namely your inventory management. With your new online sales channel bringing in orders, as well as your (potentially numerous) retail stores, distributors, wholesale customers and direct sales via your warehouse, inventory management has suddenly become paramount to your business’ survival.
