Keep your stock synchronized across multiple warehouses

Businesses often opt to store their products across multiple warehouses — which has many benefits. Perhaps the most obvious one is that it allows businesses to keep inventory closer to their customer base, leading to shorter shipping times and lower shipping costs.

Additionally, storing inventory in multiple warehouses can help businesses manage their risk, as they can leverage their products across different geographical regions.

With Katana’s enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, you get a live overview of your entire inventory across all your warehouses. This helps you make informed decisions about where to send your orders to ensure everything runs as efficiently as possible. Katana automatically keeps everything in sync and updates the stock levels as orders come in.
