Real-time Inventory Management

Without enough inventory, sales will suffer and the bottom line weakens.  Inventory control is critical to a publisher's profitability.

Inventory is tricky – too little and you might miss a sales opportunity; too much and it creates a glut of books you can't get rid of.  It is crucial to maintain accurate numbers of what is on the shelves.  Knowing what has sold and what is in the warehouse or with distributors can make or break your company.
