A product availability tracker detects the status of product that retailers are selling to customers. Depending on the device, it can act as an inventory counter to tell you how many of that product are available for purchase or detect when a product is out of stock.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A PERIODIC AND PERPETUAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM?
Periodic: A periodic inventory system relies on physical counts that occur at the beginning and end of set time periods. A periodic system typically works better when there is less stock to count and is better suited for small businesses. These periodic cycle counts are completed using a manual inventory system.
Perpetual: A perpetual inventory system continuously and immediately counts stock as it is sold and received. Companies with larger inventories usually employ a perpetual system. Perpetual inventory management systems use either barcode or radio frequency identification systems to constantly record stock.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF INVENTORY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS?
Manual inventory system: A manual inventory count is completed by hand and in person. This count is not automated and is done within a periodic management system. Companies that practice manual inventory counts use checklists, spreadsheets, and other tools to track their stock. Manual inventory counts can be easily subject to human error and take more time than other methods but are also cheaper and require no special tools. Businesses with smaller inventories are more likely to use manual counts.
Barcode: A barcode inventory management system relies on the scanning of each product barcode on an item in order to count a company’s inventory. Each barcode scan automatically tabulates in a company’s database, making it a perpetual system. Barcode systems remove many cases of human error that occur in a manual inventory count. It is faster than a manual inventory count, although it requires more upfront cost and can still be time-consuming because every individual barcode must be scanned.
Radio frequency identification (RFID): Radio Frequency Identification management systems utilize unique tags to track stock in real-time, using a cloud-based inventory system. With RFID, companies can collect real-time data and know exactly where products are. The disadvantages of using an RFID system are the price, resources needed to set up the system, and the radio frequency’s ability to be blocked.
