The Importance of Inventory Management
According to Investopedia, inventory management is “the process of ordering, storing and using a company’s inventory.” Inventory is important because the materials you sell are what helps you make profits and you don’t want to be caught short on inventory when there’s demand for what you’re selling. At the same time, there are certain items such as food that will spoil if you hold onto it for too long. You also have to worry about things like damage or theft and insuring your inventory.

There are advantages to having access to excess inventory.
