Looking for software which will track supplier inventory.

Oct 20, 2013 9:29AM PDT


I run an online business and am looking to expand.

I mostly deal in importing and wholesaling, and am looking for software which will track the stock levels of my supplier, and mirror that in my own system, as well as tell my website whether my supplier has a product in stock or not preferably in or close to real time or a 24 hour rotation.

So on my website I sell product X, which I dropship from my supplier in Dijibouti. The ideal software will tell the website and my inventory control software whether or not my supplier currently has product X in stock.

Hopefully this makes sense. If anyone knows a better place to ask this that would also be great.

You need to talk to your supplier.

They would know if they have some program that can access their inventory system. Again, you must ask them.

I don't yet have a supplier chosen.

I am only in the planning stage, and just wanted to know if software such as this existed. Thanks!

But the most like folk to know if you can check their inventory via some app would be them.

I think available, but made by yourself

Actually you can get the software with your requirement but as per my view, if you have your personal requirement, the best way to make it yourself.
