Are you a Parts Manager responsible for maximizing cash flow out of the parts room, dock store or chandlery? You have to balance a number of competing demands - you can't sell what you don't have in stock, so you have to keep stock levels up. But, you have limited resources so you need to keep the right items in stock without carrying excess inventory. And, you need to order wisely to get the best price while minimizing shipping costs, without making the parts ordering and stocking process so complex you don't have time for customer service. You need to make sure you are selling everything for the current price, not the price when you ordered it. You need to manage special orders for your customers, including the service department, and you certainly don't have time to type in the description every time you stock a new part, or to double-check the price on everything before you invoice it.
It's not an easy job, but the right tools will help you focus on the other things you need to take care of - like servicing the customer, keeping the shelves neat and clean.
