Inventory for Health and Beauty

The products you sell, sell well because you’re brilliant at what you do. Your clients love you and your products. How would you like to spend more developing your marketing or developing new product lines? We help Health & Beauty businesses streamline their end-to-end inventory process.
The brand you’re building is unique, as is your business. But there are some challenges that you share with your competitors – one of those is how you manage your inventory. Regardless of what you sell, we think some of these will sound familiar.

  • “Why is that product out of stock?”
  • “If we change the ingredients, what will it cost?”
  • “Why are we running low on our main raw material?”
  • “Why is it taking so long to ship?”
  • “Someone used the wrong exchange rate.”

Core Challenges

1

Tracking Batch Numbers

Many beauty and healthcare products promote the fact that they are ‘natural’, ‘humane’, or ‘gluten free’. This is great, but how do you know this? Having visibility from suppliers dropping the goods to the warehouse, through production and into sales is critical and challenging. Batch numbers help by showing you exactly where your products and raw materials are coming from and going to.
2

Pick, Pack, Ship Frustration

Getting your products into the hands of retailers, wholesalers and your direct clients as quickly as possible is key to any Health & Beauty business. Automating as much of your pick, pack and ship process can go a long way to making this happen. Get your products out on time and everyone is happy. Get them out late and you risk the wrath of unhappy partners & clients.
3

Production Records

Keeping accurate production information is vital to any health and beauty business. Knowing what goes into every product helps you make smart decisions. And, if things go wrong, understanding ‘why’, is so important. Accurately capturing wastage levels, production errors, changes to recipes and every aspect of production is made easier through automation.
