It encompasses functionalities such as report generation, order alerts e.t.c.This research examines inventory management and the role it plays in improving customer satisfaction. It looks at how glass companies have been under pressure to streamline their inventory systems, and the consequences of such actions. Many glass companies are, therefore, looking at various inventory management systems as they belief this will have a positive effect on the satisfaction of their customers. It also outlines the methodology used in the research and concludes by pointing out the limitations of the research as well as suggestions for further research.
