A lot of people these days work off their phones as efficiently as from their desktops. Not only is mobile-only work possible, but it is also practiced and adopted by more and more people from all walks of life. When it comes to small inventory-based businesses, their day-to-day inventory- and sales-related tasks call for moving around a lot. Mobile apps are a ‘work smarter’ strategy that helps these companies get more done without all the needless back and forth. It is to this end that the majority of vendors of small business inventory management software design their solution to include a web app as well as a mobile app.

The web application is accessed through a web browser and is often used to generate reports, manage users, import big bulks of data, approve operations, get insights into inventory movements and the financial side of the business – all of this can be done from the comfort of your office or home. In the meantime, its mobile counterpart is designed to support warehouse and off-site sales operations, addressing the least convenient tasks to be done from a laptop on the go, like:

  • Quickly checking product availability
  • Doing inventory audits
  • Receiving stock into your warehouse
  • Picking and packing orders for shipment
  • Creating new orders
  • Invoicing or recording a payment from a customer in the field

A mobile inventory management app caters better to all of the afore-mentioned needs and is an invaluable digital assistant to your warehouse and customer-facing teams.
