Inventory Manager vs. Online Store

Which is better for your business?
At first glance, you might think that an inventory manager and an online store are the same thing. So, what’s the difference? At TWG, we offer both of these options for you to sell products on your website.

An inventory manager allows you to upload all of your products into different categories to display on your site. You can enter the product name, price, description and images. It is a great way of display your products and availability. The inventory manager helps customers do research online before they come to visit you. With an inventory manager, your customers cannot actually purchase your products online. They will be directed to contact you to order a product. This application is typically ideal for businesses that do not have a huge inventory, or for those who are not ready to sell their products online.

On the other hand, if you have a larger inventory or want the option to sell your products online, then you may get the most benefit from an online store. Our online store can handle a larger quantity of products and gives your customers the option to order directly on your website. Having an online store provides you the opportunity to not only make your products or services available to the global market, but also lets your customer choose when to shop and pay online 24hrs a day, 365 days a year.

We can work with you to evaluate whether our inventory manager or an online store is the most ideal fit for your current needs. Do either of these options sound like something you may need to jump-start your business sales? TWG can help you determine which of our systems is better for your business.
