Aligning your team with inventory spreadsheets is a challenge
Getting total task-level control of your production line and sales employees is tricky with inventory templates. While an inventory spreadsheet is great for a team of one or two, the more people making edits and updates to your file, the higher the possibility of mistakes occurring — not to mention all the administrative work.
In short, Excel inventory spreadsheets are not a scalable inventory management system. Both in terms of the time it takes to keep them up to date and the degree of complexity they can help you as a manufacturer. Moving away from inventory spreadsheets is eventually a must, but luckily, manufacturing software can help.
