You need to know what you have available to sell. And where it is. But do you have a single view of all your inventory? Inventory visibility is a common challenge. When stock is located across various locations, channels and even regions, it becomes complex. Many times, data is stored in disparate systems that don’t talk to each other. That makes it even more challenging.

Accurate inventory visibility means less overselling and underselling. And a single view of inventory allows you more control over what you sell where. Achieving a single view of inventory is must if you are looking to improve your stock visibility and overall customer experience.

Let’s explore the top 3 benefits:

1. Enhanced customer experience on the Product Detail Page

By accepting backorders, preorders, or showing local stock availability at a nearby store, you can better capture the sale.

2. Track stock in near real-time

Fluent Order Management allows you to see what is available across all locations. Know what’s in stock, being processed and ready for pickup or shipment—from your stores to your distribution centers. You can even flag damaged items, so unsaleable inventory won’t be shown in online channels.

3. Control what you sell in each channel

Fluent Order Management gives you the power to exclude products by category or attribute. For example, you could exclude bulky items from being sold in certain channels, or high-demand items in specific locations.
