Why Managing Your Repair Store Inventory Matters

Inventory management is an important part of every retail store. Repair stores too have a critical link in inventory management, and being able to stay on top of it matters. In this short post, RepairDesk is going talk about why managing your repair store inventory is important.

Repair store inventory is changing all the time

When you repair an item, you’re going to need parts. The parts that you have are just like any other commodity at a retail store, and need to be catalogued. They are available in large quantities at your store, and are stocked up for use. The nature of repairing makes it so that you’re constantly using parts, and so, it is important to keep track of all usage.

As your stock values change, your repair shop POS software needs to be updated as well. This is because it needs to accurately show how many parts are available before committing to an order. If your store has a constant bead on the stock that is available, it will be more efficient in managing its operations.

Checking repair store inventory is necessary

Since most repair store parts are often plentiful and small, you’ll need to check them to see if they haven’t been misplaced. Keeping a check on your repair store inventory through inventory counts, barcode labels and such makes this easier. Inventory counts help in identifying any discrepancies in your stock’s status, and if any loss or theft has occurred. Keeping a healthy cycle of inventory counts is going to be important, so you should keep it all in mind for the future.
