we are small company and are looking to streamline our inventory control system beyond spreadsheets and the manual labor involved in keeping them updated. can anyone personally recommend a software they've had success with or one they've seen in action? i've looked around and can only find advertising but no testimonials for our application. any thoughts or ideas or warnings would be appreciated.

For small companies, your best bet is to look for addon modules from the software company that makes your accounting software OR 3rd party addon products that have interfaces to your accounting software.  If you are using a popular accounting package, there are usually a fair number of addon products to choose from. Hopefully you'll find something within this group that will meet your needs. If not, you are forced to find an inventory package and integrate it with your system (can get expensive) or run a standalone inventory system (not usually a good idea) or look for an integrated accounting and inventory system that meets your needs and scrap your current accounting system.

thanks for the reply. when you says accounting software my thoughts are that you would be referring to Quickbooks-which is what we use to generate orders, invoices, purchaser orders and maintain customer and vendor info. we also use it to file items by part number. are you suggesting we look to Quickbooks for the addon product? who would be a provider of the "inventory package" you mention and would the expense be in the software or labor to transfer the above info into it or both?

We do have a warehouse. I have looked into several systems and the one that seemed most likely came in around (USD)$13,000. More info would be appreciated regardless of the price. Thanks for the reply.

The solution details is given below. I can organize the demo if you want me to. Briefly what it can do in terms of inventory management is given below. 13000 is lot. Our solution is for $5000. We can customise it anytime also.

Our solution work by linking the warehouse workers to the backend application server where warehouse activities are being recorded via a wireless handheld device. The handheld device tells employees where to go to pick, put away, count, or move product within the warehouse. This translates to a better control over the movement and storage of materials within the warehouse, it maximise the efficiency of the receipt, optimise warehouse space utilization and know at all times exactly where goods are stored,- allowing employees and warehouse employees to pick pack items quickly thus  improving service levels.

Picking
The system will direct the warehouse employees to pick pallets against n number of orders. The system directs the picker to the specified location and scans the product barcode to confirm the correct item has been picked in the correct quantity. This will create a paperless environment as well as WMS assign employees specific areas of responsibility in the warehouse.
The barcode data is entered into the Warehouse Management Solution, including the measurements, location, number of products in a box, number of boxes on a pallet and storage conditions and provides up to minute information for picking of a single order or multiple orders.

Receiving
When items are received to be put away into the warehouse locations; the system would either scan in the incoming items barcodes or if there is no barcode system would print a barcode label and attach to the pallet.

The bar code assigned to items would store all the information about the box’s contents i.e. tracking fields (serial & lot numbers, etc). The system would automatically manage safety stock, re-order quantities and would send alert to purchasing department in situation where safety stock reaches below its threshold value.

I went to Naxtor's wesite and found the page "Warehouse Inventory Tracking Solution". Is this the product you are referring to? We use certain websites to post and maintain our database of parts listings and they have been down for up to a day at a time. What has been your history of server performance in this regard? I like the idea of the product being customisable. Do you have a stateside sales representative? Is there any way to integrate this with UPS Worldship software?

In my experience, it is best to have one integrated system instead of several seperate processes. One system allows for data accuracy, increased efficiency, and less user interface.
If you are interested in upgrading your Quickbooks program to ADVANTAGE Software (a completely integrated, industry specific ERP program) please let me know. We have a great promotion that we are running for $700 off for companies switching from Quickbooks. I would be happy to provide you demonstrations and direct you to the coupon.

We were a small Equipment Rental company, and we searched for an application used by famous and big companies to see what they use.
Then I reviewed the feature of that software to see if they can fulfill my needs or not. Or what my future needs may be. The reason to do so is that we cannot change our program every now and then. I found Rental Tracker Pro. Only a few of its features were enough to completely achieve what we are looking for. However we are happy with our choice, because as our company grows the software can completely satisfy us and we do NOT need to move to a new software. to see the features you can see their website:  rentaltracker[dot]com
