Having inventory doesn’t automatically make someone an expert on inventory management, no more than having a baby instantly makes someone an expert on raising children. You need to figure out what works for you and your business.
Fishbowl is now offering a new training program in addition to its usual one. Normally, Fishbowl sends inventory specialists out to train customers on how to implement Fishbowl Manufacturing, Fishbowl Warehouse, and other software we provide.
This new training program teaches businesses inventory management best practices. It helps businesspeople learn how to:
- Control their inventory
- Optimize the layout of their warehouse(s)
- Account for lead times when placing orders
- Set up automatic reorder points on parts and products
- Handle inventory transfers and shipments
- And much more
Rather than conducting these training sessions in a traditional classroom setting, we’ve set up shop in a warehouse in Springville, Utah. An expert will be on hand to show you how to manage your inventory. They won’t just tell you what to do.
It’s not enough to just read about inventory management topics (although I do try to make the blog posts on the Fishbowl Blog as informative as possible). What it takes to become really proficient in inventory management is to go beyond book knowledge and get some hands-on training. Go into that warehouse and get tips from an expert on how to do simple and complex tasks more efficiently.
This training lasts just one day, and at the end of it you can take a test to see how much of the information you’re able to remember. Performing a new task is one of the best ways to learn and master it, so we’re confident you’ll retain a lot of useful knowledge from this training that you can start using in your business.
