Move inventory into your Salesforce Cloud.

Already using Salesforce to manage your Sales and Marketing?  You need to consider many business applications have a SAAS cloud offering which compliments Salesforce – why not consider putting your inventory management functions into the cloud as well?

I want to give you 4 good reasons why this should be a serious consideration for any business

  1. Save time for more important things

Most business owners are time poor,  spending time on non-core functions takes away from time that could be spent on growing the business or servicing the customer.  It makes sense to select best practice tools such as RIO inventory – and put the running of those tools in the cloud.

2. Get Better flexibility from your IT spend

A cloud-based inventory application like RIO inventory provides the flexibility for you to be able to react to business needs anywhere at anytime. Interfacing with your inventory on mobile devices means if something goes wrong you are only moments away from addressing.

3. Best practice Security

Security needs are regularly ranked as a high priority for all businesses.  Building this capability from the ground up is costly and can be outdated quickly.  Placing your inventory into the cloud using a tool like RIO inventory means you can benefit from best practice cloud-based security

4. Have better options on how you spend your IT budget

You obviously want performance which is stable and delivers predictable service.  The traditional way of doing things means large amounts of your IT budgets it tied up just keeping the lights on.  Consider moving away from owning and running infrastructure,  and put functions like inventory management into the cloud. This will free up IT budget to either be saving on your bottom line or redeployed to help grow the business.
