What you’ll need to know about store inventory and fulfilment.
Stores are increasingly used as fulfilment centres to support both online and in-store sales, which is often referred to as "omnichannel fulfilment" or "click-and-collect" and involves using store inventory to fulfil online orders, as well as offering customers the option to pick up their online orders at the store.
Stores can provide a wide range of options, including in-store pickup, to allow customers to place online orders and pick them up at outside at the pavement, in a locker, or by coming inside the store to pick up. Ship from store refers to shipping products directly to customers from the store to reduce shipping costs and delivery times for customers who live near the store.
Inventory accuracy in retail stores has been traditionally low for reasons such as:
- Manual data entry where many retailers still rely on human data entry to track inventory levels, which can lead to errors.
- Lack of standardisation when different stores or departments within the same store use different methods to track inventory, it is difficult to get a clear picture of overall inventory levels.
- Poor data quality means retailers may not have a clear understanding of their inventory levels, due to data being entered inaccurately, missing data or not updating in a timely manner.
- Complex supply chains where retailers often have multiple suppliers and distribution centres, can make it difficult to accurately track inventory levels across different locations. High product turnover affects retailers that carry a large number of products that have a short life span, making it challenging to accurately track inventory levels.
- Theft and shrinkage cause retailers to lose inventory to factors such as employee theft, shoplifting, or administrative errors.
- Lack of technology affects retailers that don't use inventory management software or other technology to track inventory. As a result, retailers may find it difficult to accurately track inventory levels.
Radio Frequency Identification technology provides real-time visibility into inventory levels via RFID tags, which are small chips attached to products, and can be read using RFID readers, which can quickly and accurately scan large numbers of products.
Manhattan offers the most comprehensive support for in-store RFID in the industry, with native support for overhead and handheld readers.
