Smartsheet loses points in our book because it isn’t inventory management software at all—it’s project management software. As such, the software can’t really help you generate invoices or bills of material. The tool can’t help you track exact costs or submit product reorders directly to your vendor.
What Smartsheet can help with, however, is task management and data tracking. Like Excel, Smartsheet gives you a spreadsheet tool, which you can use to keep tabs on stock levels and identify when you need to reorder your items. And since the software lets you view your data in Gantt charts, Kanban cards, grids, and calendar views, you can easily track your products’ lifecycles and assign tasks to your employees along the way.
And while Smartsheet isn’t exactly an inventory management platform, it does have inventory templates that you can use to track your stock. So if your business is small enough that all you need is an inventory tracking solution, Smartsheet could be a good pick for your company.
