Inventory management for manufacturers in the eCommerce environment is uniquely challenging due to the product-type(s) they sell; namely ‘assembled’ products. To maintain flexibility in order fulfillment, a manufacturer will often ‘assemble-to-order’ using the required child components. With demand for related products with common components constantly changing, it becomes near-impossible for the business to indicate how many of each assembled item are actually available for sale.

- Open-source shopping carts provide you the greatest control and flexibility in implementing your cart. Open-source doesn't necessarily mean free; only that you have access to the underlying source code. With open-source, your initial costs to implement tend to be higher, but your long-term operating costs tend to be lower.

With fully-hosted systems, your up-front investment tends to be lower with subsequently higher long-term operating costs.
