Retail Inventory Tracker 2020 – Free Inventory (Stock) Management template

A simple and effective way to manage orders and inventory for your retail business. If you are getting started with a retail business where you plan to buy products from your suppliers and then sell them to customers with a margin, then you would need a tool to track your business in an effective way.

Why do we need an Inventory and Sales Management tool?

1. What is current inventory level?
2. When to order?
3. Which products to order?
4. Are we profitable?
5. Who are best customers and suppliers?

In order to get to this information easily and quickly, we need some kind of software. There are several sophisticated and expensive cloud based software available to manage inventory and sales for retail businesses.

For small and medium size businesses, especially when we are starting up, it is important that any software we choose is easy to use, customize and not expensive. This is why I am excited to present a free Excel template as a solution.
