How To Improve Your Inventory Storeroom

As an office manager, you depend on your employees to handle the shipping and receiving aspect of your business but when was the last time you actually fulfilled an order from your storeroom. Have you recently checked in new inventory? This doesn’t mean you have to go “Undercover Boss” but it might help to know just what is going on from the inside. You will be able to see for yourself what areas can be improved upon. Here are ideas to consider for a better inventory storeroom.

Bulletin Board

You might already have this up in your storeroom but is the information up to date? Are their postings that are relevant to your workers? Perhaps you can put someone in charge of adding “updates” to the bulletin board. Company notices are vital but maybe menus from nearby restaurants or photos of worker’s family. Make it feel more like a community bulletin board than just a place for safety rules.

Hanging Racks

Not everything fits neatly onto a shelf or a bin. A hanging rack is a good way to hold inventory and keep it prepped for shipping. Hanging racks can also serve as a moving device. And you might as well get an extra one for everyone’s coat!

Efficient Shipping Area

The shipping area is what drives most businesses. Unless orders go out in an efficient matter, supply chain falters and customers are turned off. You want to make everything needed for shipping within arm’s reach of your workers while they’re at the station. Even doubling up on small supplies like tape, scissors and packing materials will go a long way towards making the shipping area more efficient. No worker should have to “borrow” anything from another worker to get an order out.

Lockers

If you don’t have lockers installed, then it is something you’ll want to consider bringing in. This is a simple way to provide personal space for employees that work exclusively in the storeroom area. Lockers help keep the storeroom looking neat and professional.

No Rubbish

Employees should be in the habit of daily cleanups in the storeroom. No shift should ever come in to a mess. But it’s not just sweeping the floor and taking out the trash that you should be focused on. There are a lot of things that probably are taking up room on the shelves that could be hauled away as rubbish. That’s where Junk King Indianapolis can be of assistance. They’ll dispatch a moving crew and truck to cart off all the things you’ve never going to sell. That is going to open up a lot more space. Whether it is one rubbish removal session or regular appointments, working with Junk King Indianapolis can make a big difference in you inventory storeroom.

One Call Takes Care Of Your Cardboard Box Problem

Cardboard boxes are becoming a popular commodity. Businesses have always received inventory shipments in cardboard boxes but now many homes are being “swamped” by boxes on a regular basis thanks to all the online shopping that is going on. Most folks actually have a hard time letting go of cardboard boxes. There is always a sense that they can be used again for something. The more industrious folks will break down the boxes so they can be stacked in a neat pile. Others will just try to fit the smaller boxes into the bigger boxes. What often follows is that the cardboard box piles start to grow with no end in sight. This can also happen at a retail store or restaurant. When cardboard boxes become a problem for you, it is time to bring in the pros from Junk King Indianapolis.
