Don’t Forget – Do It For Your Customers

Things get crazy this time of year. Problems need to be solved and there is too much work and too little time. Stop. Breathe. Relax. At least for a few minutes. At least once a day. Every day.

Your customers will pick up on your mood, and the better it is, the better service you will give them. Seriously, it isn’t just for you, it is for your customers too. Also remember to plan time to celebrate the season in whatever way is appropriate for you. Schedule the time and stick to the plan! Everyone deserves a break.

Take Stock In 2019

It is almost a new year, and you know what that means. Time to count the inventory. Depending on how much you love or hate reconciling numbers (hint – most people hate it), an important part of any business that sells products is keeping track of inventory. If you don’t know how much inventory you have, then you won’t know what you need to purchase to restock. There are also the happy (and not so happy) finds of products that you forgot you had. If it is one of those not so happy finds, then sell it cheap, take a loss, and get it off your hands!

Before you start dusting off those products that you forgot about, start by exporting a list of your inventory from your Vendio account. Once you have logged in go to Inventory Export under the Items menu. For this task it is best to only keep the columns that will be of use to you when counting, so uncheck the boxes for the fields that you don’t need. Make sure you keep the quantity fields and whatever fields you are using to match the products in your file to the physical products you are counting (the SKUs and titles are always included in the export files).

After you have exported your Vendio inventory count and you’ve counted your physical products, you’ll know what quantities need to be updated in Vendio. You can do this individually from the My Items page of your Vendio account, but if there are many necessary corrections then a CSV file using update mode is probably the best option.

During your inventory count it is a great time to decide what products are and aren’t working for your business. Based on how things have sold you can decide what you need to order in larger quantities, and also what you need to retire and liquidate. Vendio Reports can also help with these decisions. Happy 2019 and happy counting!
