Software Advice recently took a survey of inventory management buyers to find out the most popular and desirable capabilities of inventory management software. After talking to a random sample of 385 phone interactions they compiled the data into a BuyerView report for 2014.

Key Findings:

  1. More than 95 percent of prospective buyers were evaluating inventory management software for the first time.
  2. Over 70 percent of prospective inventory management software buyers were looking for a best-of-breed system, while just 26 percent were interested in an integrated-suite solution.
  3. Fifty percent of prospective buyers preferred to keep things simple, only wanting software with basic inventory control.
