by Jeanne Croteau, on August 22, 2018
If you’ve been using RestockPro, you already know that it’s a powerful tool. When you’re already getting so much value out of a software, though, it can be easy to overlook features that can really help you take your business to the next level.
For example, did you know that RestockPro can automatically generate a highly tailored, personalized report for you every night and send it directly to you by email? In this blog post, we’ll dig into the reasons why this is beneficial to you, how to set it up and tips for using filters to get what you need when you need it.
Why Nightly Emails Matter
Simply put, managing inventory can be a major challenge. Even the most experienced sellers may find themselves struggling under a heap of spreadsheets trying to determine what needs to be reordered, what items could be shelved and whether trending products are worth adding to their lineup.
By taking advantage of RestockPro’s daily reports, you will feel like you have a personal assistant guiding you through the inventory management process. The tool’s Restock Suggestions can provide valuable insight into margins, rank, sales history and recommendations to help you make informed shipment and reordering decisions.
This can, of course, save you a lot of time and money. Rather than relying on guesswork, you’ll have access to specific, accurate data that can be delivered directly to your inbox every night.
How to Set It Up
To get started, click on the arrow next to your user name in the top right corner of the Dashboard. From the drop-down menu, select “My Profile” and then click on “Settings.” You will then be able to set the frequency with which you want to receive the emails, which can be delivered nightly, weekly (you choose the day) or never.
Next, you will want to turn your attention to the filters. While some want to pore over every detail, many users may feel overwhelmed by the amount of information the tool can provide. Fortunately, RestockPro gives users control over which columns they want to see in their report.
The great thing is that this can be modified at any time. If a certain configuration is giving you too much or too little data, simply navigate back to this area and add or remove columns. Don’t forget to hit “Apply Saved Filter” when you’re done!
Tailored to Email Account
Another great feature is that RestockPro allows multiple users to customize their own reports since they are tied to specific email accounts. If one person simply wants quick, high-level information but another is looking for very detailed data, they can both receive a report that meets their needs.
To ensure this is an option, visit the Dashboard where you can manage users. Then, when different people log in, they can simply choose the correct profile before applying their own filters. It’s so easy!
This is a great way for everyone to be engaged in the inventory management process since this is such an integral part of your business’ success. It can also be very helpful if you are hiring new employees and want to give them specific, limited information.
Restocking at a Glance
In today’s technology-based world, many use their phones to access emails. If you set up nightly reports through RestockPro, you will have the ability to keep an eye on your inventory needs at any time. By being informed and proactive, you’ll be able to identify areas that need your attention before critical problems arise.
If you’re selling on the Amazon marketplace, you probably already know how quickly things can change. Competition is fierce, and other sellers are always looking for ways to stay ahead of the game. When you run out of stock, you put your business at risk of losing customers.
By subscribing to nightly email reports, you will see how your FBA data can be transformed into inventory intelligence, arming you with the ability to monitor competitive listings, expected margins, sales velocity and so much more. Best of all, RestockPro does this for you automatically.
