Inventory management enables you to control & oversee order inventory, storage & stock, and also the sale amounts per product.
Being a business or a warehouse owner even if you are running an online shopping store, keeping track of your products making sure you have enough quantity of every single item especially if orders start to stack up, and start to upsell even have back-orders can be time consuming and tough to manage.
