Man doing inventory management, manually

Today’s need for operational efficiency and precision is driven by the consumer’s demand for convenience and speed. The tools to make this happen have never been more important. As an auto parts retailer, you’re probably well aware of the challenges of managing inventory… the struggle of keeping product data up to date, maintaining prices, knowing supplier inventory and more.

This blog will explore the history of auto parts inventory management, highlighting the struggles retailers face. You’ll also discover how Mecka transforms the game by helping you move into the future of auto parts retail.

The History of Auto Parts Inventory Management

Inventory management has always been a time-consuming process. Whether with pen and paper, spreadsheets, or software it can be brutal to accomplish accurately and timely. Keeping track of billions of parts is a real chore. All too many businesses still use those archaic methods, like pen & paper and spreadsheets, making it nearly impossible to keep accurate numbers. Even accounting software can struggle with inventory control especially when the complexity of assemblies/kits are added. These methods are all prone to errors and fall short of the real-time data consumers need in today’s world of instant gratification.

The Struggles of Keeping Inventory Data

Inventory management presents a unique set of challenges. Tracking billions of products across near-limitless vehicle makes and models, managing stock levels, and keeping up with market demand are just a few of the hurdles.

The near-constant addition of new makes/models, plus updates for existing makes/models and the introduction of new auto parts make data and inventory management challenging at best. Consumers today expect online auto parts retailers to have extensive and accurate product data and inventory. Anything short of these expectations will result in a loss of sales or even a loss in consumer loyalty.

As the industry evolves, retailers investing in an accurate, robust inventory management solution will be positioned for success.
