As a software engineer, I have created an inventory management system for Shoprite Ghana Ltd. The Shoprite Group is one of the largest retailers in the world. It has excellent market capitalization, generates enormous profits, and maintains many customers and employees. The inventory management system aims to provide Shoprite with the functions and options needed to track its orders and goods across the supply chain. It is part of the SDLC (software development life cycle).
Main Features of the System
The core features of this inventory management system are as follows.
With inventory control, it will be easy for Shoprite Ghana Limited to manage the categories of different products. The admin can also set reorder levels of additional items, manage stocks, create accounts of other users and keep an eye on their day-to-day activities. In addition, the admin can reset passwords for customers, employees, and all other users. An attendant may help because they can open the list of products and begin selling them. What is present in the storage area or warehouse can also be checked. A sound inventory control system or practice can help the admin correct the stock counts.
The attendant should be able to perform sales, check transactions, scan barcodes of products, maintain an appropriate ledger on the stock level and generate and print receipts whenever needed.
Monitoring of Stocks
It is called stock monitoring. The purpose is to keep money from losing when the prices of stocks change. The admin or manager of Shoprite Ghana can check when and how the price increases. With it, they will be able to adjust their rates and can avoid any losses.
The admin should review the sales report daily or at least once a week to eliminate any errors and check the store’s overall performance.
