Shop Management Program
Home Depot Pro offers several business solutions to help maximize your profit potential. Our innovative Shop Management Program (SMP) is designed to highly organize and manage product inventory, provide visibility to your inventory, and create efficiencies in several cost-effective ways.
The SMP solution is specifically designed for stock rooms where predetermined products are maintained at certain minimum/maximum levels. It utilizes 5 product categories, with various racking and bin/box sizes to accommodate your warehouse’s space allowance and mix of parts.
One of the main benefits of Home Depot Pro's Shop Management Program is cost savings. Having an organized and controlled warehouse increases efficiency and allows techs to stay productive. This program is customizable to fit your business needs.
- Products are separated by 5 main categories: Regulators, Fittings, Valves, Pipes and Tubing, and Miscellaneous
