What is inventory management?

Inventory management is an element of logistics. It involves managing your company’s flow of goods, and maintaining an overview of its merchandise and materials – in other words, its inventory. A critical part of the supply chain, inventory management also plays an important role in relation to customers. In particular, its goals include the following:

  • Reduce stockpiles
  • Optimize services
  • Increase customer satisfaction



What does an inventory manager do?


Simply put, inventory managers are responsible for managing the inventory of a company. Among other things, they keep an eye on the following:

  • Current stock levels
  • When and which products need to be reordered
  • Quantities that need to be reordered
  • Where products are stored

To optimize their inventory, inventory managers are faced with three main tasks:

1. Demand planning

Inventory managers predict the demand for products in order to prepare a company for orders and keep customers happy.

2. Inventory planning

Inventory managers determine the optimal number of products to be ordered, as well as the best time to order them.

3. Procurement planning

Here, the goal is to determine the best way to fulfill inventory, demand, and procurement requirements to meet the objectives of the company.


Why is inventory management important?










Large inventories are often associated with substantial amounts of capital. These stockpiles result in higher costs, lower liquidity, and an increased risk of theft or damage. Small inventories, on the other hand, can lead to shortages and unhappy customers. Inventory management is therefore crucial to supply chains. In particular, it provides for the following:


Switch ports

Maximum control of the flow of goods

Router ports

Reduction of inventory costs

Server ports

Optimal profitability thanks to accurate planning

How does PRTG help with my inventory management?

PRTG takes your inventory management software to the next level. By monitoring your inventory management processes, PRTG optimizes your inventory management by allowing you to constantly check whether everything is working as it should:


  • Is your inventory planning correct?
  • Are minimum inventory levels met?
  • Can customers place orders without problems?
  • Do end-to-end processes work without malfunctions and interruptions?
  • Are the environmental conditions suitable in the warehouses?


Data visualization

PRTG comes with customizable dashboards for visualizing all your important inventory management processes and data. You can create different dashboards for different teams and even rotate views on a single screen.

With PRTG, you’ll keep a constant eye on your inventory levels. The software lets you enter minimum inventory levels and define threshold values for the inventories of certain goods. If any of these thresholds are reached, PRTG will inform you at once. As a result, you can immediately take action and (for example) order more goods.



With PRTG, you get to decide how your team is notified when problems arise or your inventory threshold values are reached. Choose from Microsoft Teams, push notifications sent to smartphones, good old emails, or other means. As an inventory manager, you’ll therefore be able to always stay on top of issues.




With PRTG, it’s easy to generate reports containing monitoring data from previous time periods. You can then compare this data with real-time data to determine ways to optimize your inventory management tasks. For example, you can identify when inventory levels tend to get lower and adjust your demand planning accordingly.
