Handling unique inventory


New member
Most IT systems seem to be designed on the assumption that the inventory will be the same item that you keep reordering. I'm working with a company where every single inventory item is going to be unique, think antiques for example, and having trouble finding a system where the creation of new products is not a huge overhead, because the software assumes the product will be re-used (and most want a barcode or EAN, which presents its own problems). Short of building our own from scratch, is there anything already out there that manages this?

How many products types (SKUs) are you dealing with? Most good inventory systems could cope with 500,000+

Re: Handling unique inventory

I am not all that familiar with how software systems particularly handle inventory and categories of them, but I would have to imagine that there are some systems out there designed for this purpose. There are so many BI modules out there that I would think it would just take a look around.
