So in our continuing “series” of videos for Manufacturers and Distributors, we’ve just done a video demo showing how certain manufacturers and distributors can manage Inventory on the Salesforce Platform using Accounting Seed.
Managing your inventory on the salesforce platform gives you a single place to store, analyze and manage your business data.
For many manufacturers, and distributors, inventory management can be a daunting task. ordering components, building finished goods, allocating inventory to orders, and then repeating the process on a large scale is a daunting task.
There is usually one option for this – integrate to your ERP. As we have said in many videos, this is possible and works well for most companies, but what if you want visibility to all of the data beyond sales data – Inventory by location, allocated vs on hold vs available? and – because its inventory – you want it to be real time? In many cases, because of the API’s to various ERP’s – this becomes impossible. Enter Accounting Seed…
Have a single – real time view to Inventory and Sales data
the Beauty of the salesforce platform is that it can be enhanced and configured to do almost anything a client needs. And Accounting Seed has taken that flexibility and built a world class Accounting and Inventory Management solution – right on the platform. With Accounting Seed, we can track inventory, manage warehouse locations, allocate and ship sales orders, build finished goods from component inventory and replenish those components automatically. Now, this Inventory management solutions isn’t for everyone. If you have sophisticated Bill of Materials Needs, or Shop Floor rest needs, this might not be the tool for you.
But if you do basic inventory management and want a real time – flexible system to help manage this, we think that Accounting Seed – on the salesforce platform could be a good fit.
We would love to hear from you – if you like this video, if it’s too long, too short, to detailed, too high level. Our goal is to give you an idea of what Salesforce can do for you, but we’d like to talk about it…
