We founded Databloks because we were concerned about the availability of quality, affordable and intuitive inventory management software for small and mid sized distributors and manufacturers. Having a handle on inventory, a large capital investment, is a key success factor for these companies. Overstocking, backorders, sub-optimal purchasing and mis-shipments are just a few of the risks distributors and manufacturers face in the marketplace. Finding and adopting software to help manage these challenges shouldn’t be a burden. The Databloks mission is to help companies manage and audit their inventory using a simple and reliable cloud based tool available to all enterprise stakeholders.
