Do you have a low inventory warning system?

The ability to easily check your inventory, and the ability to set low inventory warnings, is something that can make your fulfillment experience smoother and easier. The last thing you want during the busy holiday season is a list of your products with the  “Out of Stock” sign. Make sure to ask your potential fulfillment partner if they have an automated warning system in place.

A low inventory alert system is essential to giving you the peace of mind of knowing that you can keep track of and easily resolve any unexpected inventory shortages that pop up. Peace of mind is one of the great benefits of outsourcing your fulfillment, and a low inventory alert system is an essential factor to ensuring that. Finding out if a fulfillment company has an inventory alert system is also a great way of testing the level of fulfillment technology they offer.
