Inventory management software
11 Feb 2005
We are online seller from drop ship supplier who had broad range of products .

Currently we are monitoring manually at the supplier's daily inventory
updated list in Excel format to see which is in stock or out of stock,
then we copy, paste & download those specific products we need into
our inventory list . The process of doing is really time consuming for us.

Is there any free or low cost custom inventory platform software that could
do the job for us by providing with a file in Excel format with only those
products we specify, and it will upload and always have an up-to-date
custom inventory list for our needs.

I think you are unlikely to find off-the-shelf software that will do something so specific for you.

You could cut out some of the legwork by having an Excel macro written, which would automate the cutting and pasting into your inventory list (is that in Excel format too?) Or you could have a custom stand-alone application written to do the same thing, and perhaps have a better interface and features than Excel alone.

If you don't know any programmers you could try one of the freelancer sites such as , or . Rates can be much lower than you might expect.
