The Inventory Manager
IT has been both a blessing and curse to inventory sensitive businesses. On the one hand, sophisticated inventory control software permits managers to project needs with greater and greater accuracy, thus minimizing exposure to overstock, dead goods, price fluctuations, sales downtowns and also freeing capital. The negative side is that relatively small events can throw the operation into turmoil, and inventory managers must be perpetually diligent to succeed.
Wireless access to inventory databases has added a great measure of flexibility to the task. Managers are able to monitor, transer, project and reorder stocks anytime, anywhere via wireless devices.
