Zoho Inventory Management

Have you ever wished there were a way to use Zoho to keep track of all your inventory, so you could not only keep tabs on all your stock, but see how it was being used, and by whom, and use one unifying window to place orders from your vendors and ship them as well?  With Zoho inventory management, now you can.

Zoho has recently released the Zoho Inventory app, which means you can conduct all your Zoho inventory management from inside Zoho – and, import all your data to your Zoho CRM and Zoho Books, so you don’t have any more of the double entry you might be used to.

How the Zoho Inventory Management App Works

Using Zoho Inventory is as simple as using any other Zoho app; once you integrate it with Zoho CRM, you’re ready to roll!  Zoho Inventory comes with these great features:

3rd-party store integrations for increased sales

One of Zoho Inventory’s key features is the ability to integrate to platforms like Amazon, Etsy, eBay, and Shopify.  These integrations allow for tracking and data importing directly from these other platforms, which can significantly cut the amount of time you spend entering data at the end of the day or during your day – perhaps to none at all!

Conversely, if a lack of an integration was your only reason for not expanding to those online storefronts, you now have every reason to do so.

One window to rule them all

If you’re used to keeping track of all your inventory, your vendors, and analytics related to your inventory in separate windows or programs, you know what a hassle that process can be.  It doesn’t have to be like that for you, though.  With the Zoho inventory management app, you’ll be able to keep track of everything inventory-related: your key metrics, vendors, shipping statuses, and the orders themselves (both online and offline).

Track products’ journeys from start to finish

End-to-end tracking means you’ll know the status of any item you ship from the moment it leaves the stockroom shelf to the minute it arrives at your customer’s door.  Not only will you never lose track of anything again, but, you can also program the system to remind you when your stock of particular items is running low, so you can order more of them.

Plug in your shipping engines

Zoho inventory management is more than just aggregating all your analytics and item statistics; you can even use it to inegrate to shipping modules powered by UPS, DHL, and FedEx, among others.  This ensures you have access to real-time shipping prices and facilitates the tracking of orders.

Integrate with Zoho CRM and Zoho Books (and other programs)

Again, any time you spend manually transferring data from one program to another – or even one Zoho app to another – is time that could be better spent doing anything else!  The Zoho inventory management app takes the extra work off your schedule by mapping and syncing customer data directly to Zoho CRM, and transferring financial data to Zoho Books.  The sync is bi-drectional, which means the system can also pull data from your CRM and your Books app into Zoho Inventory.

To boot, ZBrains customers have access to a host of integrations and custom Zoho ERP apps that can’t be found anywhere else.  These include the Zoho CRM QuickBooks integration, Zoho Executive Dashboards, Zoho Commission Calculator, and many others.

Closing Thoughts…

Zoho Inventory looks like a great addition to the Zoho family.  Its purpose is simple and intuitive, but, it brings together a really good deal of helpful tools and statistics that would make the life of any storeroom manager (and his staff) quite a bit easier, and for a price that’s more than reasonable.
