What is Inventory Fulfilment?
Learn what inventory management entails and how outsourcing your order fulfilment can help your business grow.
For a retailer, a key part of the supply chain is inventory management. Inventory management is a warehouse operations process that involves storage, sales order picking, auditing procedures such as cycle counting and stock management optimisation of finished, physical items. Powered by innovative Radio Frequency (RF) technology and bespoke warehouse management systems, Inventory Management from Whistl helps your business maintain tighter controls of stock levels, minimising the probability of overstocking or understocking your saleable items and eliminating errors.
