Is Your Business Ready for BYOD?

These days a lot of small to medium sized Australian businesses have, or are looking at introducing, a set of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies for employees.  With the widespread popularity of smartphones, tablets and iPads, it seems to make good sense to allow employees to use these personal devices to carry out their work. Read More

To cloud or not to cloud?

There's no doubt about it – cloud computing has advanced by leaps and bounds in recent years. Whereas just a few years ago a company might be seen as brave for moving from an on‑premise IT infrastructure to a cloud computing environment, today that's no longer the case. These days any small to medium-sized business owner could be excused for feeling as though they're behind the eight ball if they're not migrating their company's IT resources to the cloud. Or at least thinking about it.  Read More

How to get your people to use new technology

Whether it's an ERP solution, a CRM system or a mobile workforce application, the installation of a new piece of technology involves change.  Specifically, change in the way people do things.  The problem with change is that it is often not comfortable for people – in fact, it can be downright stressful.  What is comfortable is what's familiar, and what's familiar are the old methods for getting things done.  Read More

Deciding how to add “new” stock items or lines

It takes a while to generate enough usage history on a newly stocked item to work out how much you should carry in stock.  Once you first stock an item it sells initially in a spike as your customers stock up then sales settle down. Read More

Where oh where has all our inventory gone?

Do you have salespeople who take sample products out of your warehouse without recording that they have taken them to show a customer?  They probably think that they are doing the right thing – it’s all about getting sales isn’t it.  Without sales nothing happens.  Fair enough, but your computer system doesn’t know that the item has been removed, the stock on hand and stock available isn’t adjusted for the stock in the salesman’s car.  The result is: Read More

What does running out of stock mean to you?

How do you predict when you will run out of stock or more importantly how do you find out if you are going to run out of stock?  What if you could predict the exact day you were going to run out of stock and that date was a fortnight away?  You might actually be able to do something about it.  To do this you need to know the daily inventory sell thru rate & then you need to know the estimated delivery dates of each Purchase Order that you have on for stock purchases. Read More

Sorting out Stock from your Stuff

Take stock of your stock.  Work out what is your useful stock and what is obsolete, excess or dead stock.  In other words, what sells and what doesn't?  Rank each of your warehouse products based on the past year's sales or the number of “hits” (a figure that includes sales orders, transfers, or other use of the product). Read More
