Your warehouse might seem organised, with boxes and pallets logically ordered, stacked high in racking, but every warehouse aisle holds the key to your business potential. Managing your warehouse stock control can make or break a food distribution business, so using an automated system like MYOB Advanced to manage and monitor stock is crucial to your business’s success.

Your business needs efficient systems and processes to deliver your products from the warehouse floor to your customers. Food distribution businesses need to make stock control a priority, otherwise, your stock could end up costing you money. If you are relying on manual entry, paper-based systems or spreadsheets, it’s time to think about changing to an automated process.

If you are a food manufacturer and distributor, MYOB Advanced is a proven software which can be customised to your business needs, offering streamlined and automated inventory management. MYOB Advanced is an Enterprise Research Planning (ERP) software, made for small and medium-sized businesses, and it can unlock the full potential of your warehouse stock control.

Balance Inventory Levels In Real Time

MYOB Advanced gives you real-time updates on stock counts, which includes totals by multiple items, including sub-categories. It can be integrated with a barcode and scanning system, and it works across numerous warehouses, giving specific quantities at set locations. In addition, detailed views of stock movement, maximise warehouse space and identifies high traffic zones in the workplace.

Deliver The Right Orders To The Right Customers

Using MYOB Advanced speeds up the picking time and increases order dispatches to customers. It also has the ability to monitor stock and orders in transit, which means fewer incomplete, incorrect or late orders. This means fewer returns, greater customer satisfaction, as well as creating a less stressful work environment for your staff.

Increase Your Bottom Line

MYOB Advanced gives you an understanding of stock demand including, when to re-order, what to order and how frequently orders should be placed. This helps you to determine which products are most profitable. In addition, it saves time and reduces waste, which in turn, improves productivity and minimises staff overtime.

Minimises waste

Shelf life is a big priority when it comes to food distribution. If stock fails to be ordered, it ends up costing your business more in insurance and handling, as well as taking up warehouse space. MYOB Advanced gives you the ability to monitor stock and gain accurate figures, including which items have a high turnover, allowing you to focus on the best-sellers. This gives you the opportunity to redefine your product range and focus on what is important.
