Also, the benefits far outweigh any other concerns that you may have – especially those regarding convenience, security, flexibility, among others.

Here’s a List of top 5 Reasons for you to move to a Cloud-Based ERP Software Inventory Management System for your Business


    1. Data recovery: Imagine the nightmare if you were to lose your sales and transactions reports, customer-centric data, order statuses, or simply your inventory list, just because you risked putting everything in an excel spreadsheet that was conveniently saved on your computer’s desktop. Even if you are using software that saves your data locally, without any guarantee of a cloud back-up, you still face the threat of losing your data. And this predicament can be easily avoided with a cloud-based solution, wherein you assign your service provider with the responsibility of storing and securing your data.With Cloud ERP software based on  Microsoft Azure platform ,your data is completely secured and accessible 24 x 7.
    2. Cost effective: Cloud-based ERP software system is a cost effective solution and is more beneficial over other local based systems and zero  upfront cost such as infrastructure and hardware. In addition, online inventory management systems have their own IT team, which typically means quicker implementation time, lesser investment and hassle free deployment.
    3. Flexibility of access: When professional responsibilities are required to be fulfilled remotely, most business owners find it difficult to handle a singular, on-site inventory system with no online access.Therefore, a cloud-based ERP software’s inventory management system helps to take off the limitations empowering you with ease of doing business from anywhere, anytime around the world. Another advantage of possessing access to warehouse inventory from the off-site is employee accountability. A warehouse, typically, falls prey to a myriad of employee theft scandals which could cause huge losses to any business. A cloud-based inventory management system helps to monitor transaction and quality control reports from anywhere on the planet. It is an asset for your manufacturing business to keep track of inventory and accessibility in multiple locations.
    4. Automatic updation of software: Manual software updation leads to wastage of time and money which results in delayed sales and/or wasted payroll. All cloud-based ERP software  is integrated with the feature of automation, thereby automatically fixing bugs, updating systems with the latest features or patching any IT related problems automatically.
    5. Customization: Cloud-based inventory management can be tailored as per your business unique needs. Not only are your software updates automated, but a number of cloud-based warehouse management software could also consider your requests for features that are tailor-made for your business.

At this juncture, I would like to add a client story to give you an insight of how your inventory can be well sorted and tracked with the best fit ERP software solution.

Client Story:

Luxor Impex is a fabrication company which imports fabrics from Turkey and a few other countries. It imports only two or three types of stocks primarily flock fabrics and upholstery fabrics. These are then converted to various items and segregated according to its type, colour, design etc. Big names like Curl-on purchase fabrics from Luxor. They are also retailing in Jaipur from a sprawling showroom.

Mr. Parashar, looks after the management and deals with our biztech experts. Owing to its capacity, Luxor was having difficulty in tracking inventory and managing reports. It was required to make records of the inventory, roll wise and convert the flock or upholstery fabrics into various different names of products and record exact roll wise inventory. The raw stock comes in as rolls when imported, for example, 1000mts of Flock fabric segregated in 20 rolls of 50 mts each according to colour, type or design.

Solutions provided by Expand ERP were:

    • To convert the stock of flock or upholstery fabric to various other categories, Luxor was provided stock routing. This transfers the stock to various products and also identifies the number of rolls imported for a single product. This helps them to attain accurate quantities and numbers. When done manually they were wasting time and there were chances of errors.


    • For managing the Inventory, a scanning app was customised and curated for Luxor. QR codes were printed and labelled on each fabric roll. With the help of the QR code scanner every sale can be recorded accurately giving real time data of stock and inventory. It also identifies the bin or shelf the roll is placed in the warehouse.


  • Attaining customer wise sales reports, fabric wise sale and pending roll of stock was a huge task for Luxor that was solved quite easily with filters. Reports are churned out seamlessly giving accurate real time visibility of inventory.


Luxor Impex is one of our satisfied patrons . We humbly received a testimonial from the Director, Mr. Raj.
