How Inventory Management Helps Reduce Costs

How Inventory Management Helps Reduce Costs

 Operating an auction company can seem pretty crazy at times. From inspecting your items to setting up auctions and everything in between, it can seem like you are nonstop busy. A big piece of running an auction company is managing your inventory. Inventory, especially for auction companies, can quickly become disorganized. This is where an inventory management system comes into play. 

Inventory management systems allow auction companies to stay on top of their inventory, which inevitably helps save time and cuts back costs. But how exactly does inventory management save you money?

At InnovA Technologies, we offer auction management software that includes a customizable inventory management system to suit your business needs. We believe that an effective auction management system can help save you both time and money! Below, we discuss how inventory management can help reduce your operating costs!

Categorize your inventory

One of the biggest advantages for auction companies to utilize an inventory management system is that it allows you to categorize your inventory. By this, we mean that you can visually chart which inventory is high and low in value. By keeping this information organized, you will be able to more easily dictate starting bid prices on all of your items depending on what value you have come up with. 

Better forecasting

Another benefit of inventory management is that it helps companies better forecast sales. Now, it is really difficult to forecast auction sales as everything is based on the amount of bids. However, by creating a more detailed and organized inventory, you can better guess how many items you should be listing each auction to get the max amount of bids and ultimately profits. 

Better accounting

Another thing that an inventory management system benefits is your company's accounting. By keeping track of all of your inventory and sales in one place, you can save time and simplify your accounting processes! Inventory management also allows you to assign exact costs to every item, which helps in figuring out your costs of goods sold (COGS), an important factor when it comes to business taxes. 

Save on storage costs

Lastly, depending on how much inventory your company has, an inventory management system can help you save on storage costs. Storing inventory is a variable cost, meaning, it fluctuates depending on how much inventory you have. Keeping an organized inventory will help you avoid accumulating too much inventory which in turn will help reduce your storage costs! 

For auction companies, and any business, time is money. While an inventory management system isn’t going to substantially reduce your company’s costs, it will in fact save you time and help streamline your revenues!
