Avoid losing valuable productivity. Here are excellent tips for managing your own inventory and office documents.
Constantly Track Your Inventory
Self storages in Singapore offer storage units and business spaces for rent as a convenient solution for companies to work in and store goods in the same place. Establish a solid system in place to track your stock levels. You can utilize various inventory management software that connects to your point of sale and offers real-time sales analytics. Stock levels are auto-adjusted every time you make a sale so you will always know which stocks are running low for future orders.
Identify and Remove Slow-Moving Stock
Your inventory tracking software should also help you filter out stocks that have not been sold in the last 6 to 12 months. Excess stock wastes capital and takes up space that can be better utilized for other products. You can consider different ways strategies to get rid of it such as a sale promotion or special discount. If your business space is running out of space for storage, you can rent a unit in the cheapest self storage in Singapore for temporary storage of your inventory.

The influx of critical documents such as invoices and receipts may grow as days go by. Whether you are working at home, in a traditional office or workspace rental in Singapore’s self-storages, you can benefit from having a strategy for document management.
