  1. Discover why you should use SKU referencing
  2. Understand how best to create SKU referencing
  3. The best practices in implementation of SKU


Startup organization with a small volume of goods (being in retail, production...) generally consider operations as being the things which happen anyway. They sometimes postpone the building of their operational systems to later (when they have time). This is a big mistake.

One of the main bases in inventory management is the use of SKU or Stock Keeping Units referencing. It is certainly the first tool to use if you don't want to get lost in a sea of descriptions and lose track of the items you sell, those you use for production, the ones of your clients, or even the ones you will be using yourself.

Inventory management can become quite complex if you don't use the right tools from the start.
That presentation will give you the keys to understand:
•  why SKU referencing is important
•  how to build a proper SKU referencing system
•  how to implement it and some best practices

Once you get that under control, you can build and control your inventory management system from any software or database.
