Frequently asked questions about stock and inventory management

What is the difference between stock and inventory management?

Stock management focuses on the quantity of products available for sale, directly influencing a company's revenue. By contrast, inventory management encompasses the broader spectrum of all assets used in production and affects the selling price of goods. MontaWMS efficiently streamlines both aspects, ensuring optimal stock for revenue maximisation and comprehensive inventory oversight for effective pricing and production management.

Is stocktaking the same as inventory management?

No, stocktaking and inventory management are distinct processes. Stocktaking refers to the counting and recording of products available for sale – a part of daily business operations. Inventory management, however, is a broader term that includes managing all items necessary to make, store and sell your stock, encompassing a more comprehensive range of assets and activities. MontaWMS adeptly handles both these processes, ensuring accurate stock records and complete management of all inventory aspects for streamlined business operations.

What is the role of stock and inventory management?

Stock and inventory management is essential for businesses to handle their inventory efficiently. MontaWMS, a warehouse management system (WMS), plays a crucial role in this process. It tracks inventory in real-time, optimises warehouse operations and helps prevent overstocking or understocking. MontaWMS also analyses data and trends, enabling informed decisions and ensuring timely reordering to meet customer demand effectively.

What are the four types of inventory management?

1. Raw materials: Managing the supply of materials used in production. 
2. Works-in-process (WIP): Monitoring the progress of products in production. 
3. Maintenance, repair and operations (MRO): Handling maintenance and daily operations supplies. 
4. Finished goods: Optimising stock levels of completed products. 
MontaWMS can assist in efficiently managing these inventory types.
