Best Software for Inventory: Is Bespoke Best?

Best software for inventory and stock management is what a lot of businesses look for to help drive their efficiency and profits. However, many worry that trying to integrate a new piece of software into their already existing software and accountancy systems will be a lengthy process. So is bespoke software the way to go?

One of the major and more obvious advantages in a firm choosing to utilise bespoke inventory management software is that it can be tailored to unique business needs in a way that most off-the-shelf software just cannot compete with. This can make it more intuitively suited to the way in which your firm operates. But this in turn leads to one of the major disadvantages of creating bespoke stock control software – it will be more expensive to purchase than standard alternatives. There’s no doubt that if your firm does have the finances to cover such software, it would also benefit from being easier to update than standardised software. Standardised packages require tweaking by a developer, for whom you would need to wait to make such updates. Customised software comes ready to use, co-ordinating smoothly with all your packages. But another disadvantage is that this process can be time-consuming – from finding the right developer to getting the software tailored to your requirements. For many small to medium enterprises (SMEs) in the UK market today, that is just not a viable option. Thankfully, however, there are already developed software solutions for inventory management out there that can easily be integrated into most standard accountancy systems .

Take, for example, the Barcoder 250 from ES Consulting. This system has been developed to seamlessly work with both Sage 50 and Sage 200  – the most widely used accountancy software amongst SMEs.
