TradeGecko inventory management for automotive and marine parts wholesalers and retailers
Handle product variants, multi channel sales, and leverage technology for growth.
The principle of good inventory management for any retail or wholesale business is to figure out and maintain the optimal balance of how much stock to keep. For the automotive and marine parts industry in particular, where there may be thousands of SKUs in storage at any given time, this can be a challenge.
Technology is a wonderful tool that businesses can leverage to consolidate their supply chain. This way, decision makers can ensure that supply chain processes are optimized for the particularities of their business.
Handle product variants
TradeGecko inventory management system allows you to sort your stock by variant such as size and brand. Sort your stock by size, brand, and make. Under our system, any inflow or outflow of stock is automated, thereby minimizing the risk of manual errors.
By using TradeGecko, you can minimize the frequency of inventory counts - since operating a perpetual inventory system helps you automate tedious and error-prone processes.
Multi channel sales
As the world moves online, sales are happening through a variety of different channels. It’s a great way to grow your business. Many automotive and marine parts dealers will serve both wholesale and retail clients.
TradeGecko provides a central platform to easily manage all aspects of your supply chain. We integrate with online e-Commerce platforms such as Shopify and Amazon. In addition, we offer TradeGecko users a private B2B e-Commerce software. You can customize purchase experience for your distributors on the portal.
Multi warehouse function
Running a business across multiple warehouses can make inventory management a challenge. Automotive and marine parts dealers are often faced with storage constraints due to a large number of SKUs. As a result, stock may have to be spread out over a number of different warehouses.
TradeGecko’s multi warehouse option allows businesses to manage inventory across all locations from a single platform. In addition, you can easily transfer stock between your warehouses and specify specific warehouses on your purchase orders.
Selling on consignment is also possible through TradeGecko. All you have to do is set up stock location and do a stock transfer to move stock into that consignment location. This way, you can create sales orders from that location with ease.
Through the multi warehouse function, people working in different locations can have access to the same up to date information, enabling better decision making for your entire organization. There’s no need to block parts of your stock, as everyone has access to stock information in real-time!
