If you’re a sales rep, you know you have to hustle to make money. If your company hires sales representatives you’re very aware that they often work remotely. That means that your reps are going to need to have access to their product for demonstration purposes as well as their inventory when they make sales. The easier it is for sales reps to have access to their products the more efficiently your business will run. A.B. Richards can help your business and your sales reps be more organized by giving you convenient access to your inventory.

Some Steps For Inventory Management
When you rent a storage unit from A.B. Richards, you have a place to store the products you’re selling. But you need to make the most of your access to your inventory as well. The financial services aggregator Square, Inc. makes several suggestions on how to manage smaller inventory. A big part of it is forecasting demand for your products. Obviously, you need to have hot selling products nearby and ready to move. If they’re not already in your portable storage container, you should get them there.
Conversely, you need to keep track of items that aren’t selling well. You may be able to move low selling items with a different sales strategy, but you also may want to consider if you should even be storing such items at all. If you do, they shouldn’t take up too much space and not take the space that should be reserved for products you need to access quickly.
It’s always important to keep track of the goods you’re selling and do regular audits to make certain your storage unit is organized. A good way to stay organized is to use a barcode system for all inventory you pack away. At the very least, come up with a labeling system that makes sense, such as color-coded labels. Then you should map out where you’re going to store everything for easy retrieval once you make a sale. Common sense should prevail too. Yes, you want to make certain that all of your top selling items are the most accessible, but heavier items need to be packed on the bottom.
