Used in many different industries where color, size, style, or pattern variations occur – apparel, jewelry, footwear, paint manufacturing, flooring, sporting goods – matrix inventory management simplifies complex inventory control and tracking capabilities.
When you need a matrix inventory software solution
When does matrix inventory software make life much easier? When one t-shirt is really 68.
It begins with a simple t-shirt. One product – a red t-shirt.
But you need it in 4 sizes – small, medium, large, and XL.
Then, there’s all those colors – 17 in fact. Let’s face it, not everyone wants red.
Suddenly, one t-shirt, in four sizes, and 17 colors becomes 68.
Is that one product or 68?
Matrix inventory defined
Matrix inventory simplifies defining, creating, and tracking of matrix inventory groups through the use of attributes such as color, size, style or pattern variations.
That is one t-shirt. The colors and sizes are simply attributes.
Inventory software with matrix inventory capabilities simplifies inventory management for apparel, footwear, jewelry, sporting goods, and other industry distributors and retailers.
