Inventory Management

Automate and control your inventory

It’s essential to keep track of all stock levels across warehouse locations. In addition, you need to know how much stock is on hand at all times to avoid stockouts and overselling and most important, to deliver a positive customer experience. With Linnworks inventory management software, you can track inventory in one central platform. Here’s what’s new in Linnworks inventory management.

Order Management

One central location to process orders

Manage growing volumes of orders across all sales channels seamlessly and efficiently. As your business grows and orders increase, you’ll want to have an automated system in place to keep up with orders from all sales channels. We are working to update this product feature to help you provide an effortless shopping experience to customers.

Stock Forecasting

No more overstocking or stockouts.

Inventory forecasting requires more than placing an order with your supplier to replenish the amount of stock you have on hand. This process uses sophisticated behind-the-scenes data, relying on patterns and trends to ensure that your business has the right estimates. These stock estimates should provide your business with enough lead time so you always have enough stock available. You need to understand how demand fluctuates so you can prevent issues such as overstocking or stockouts.

New in Q3

Last quarter we launched our Stock Forecasting solution, allowing customers to accurately predict inventory levels to meet demand.

Stock forecasting calculates future demand based on historical data from orders, alongside factors such as seasonality and demand trends to provide customers with a simple, actionable tool that improves decision-making.

What's coming next?:

Next up for Stock Forecasting is a new dashboard, where customers can monitor inventory and performance with ease. The new dashboard will enable you to visualize stock levels in one place and take a deep dive into SKU’s that require your attention. The new dashboard makes it easier than ever to stay in control of your inventory.

To provide a better customer experience, Linnworks can do order routing for you so orders are picked, packed and shipped from a warehouse that is closest to the customer. Check out our latest updates below.

Linnworks has more than 100 integrations so you can sell on as many channels as needed to connect to your customers.
