See the bigger picture with Square’s real-time inventory reports

An inventory report provides real-time information about your business’s stock levels. It helps you understand what’s selling and what’s not, when stock levels are running low, when you need to reorder, and which product brands are the most successful. This information can reduce overstocking and lets you know when stock has run out.

Use inventory reports to transform your retail business operations
