Abstract: The general purpose was to develop an efficient Inventory Management System (IMS) that improves service delivery at Smart shoppers’ Masaka. The main objectives were to collect and analyze user requirements that provide the researchers with enough information of what the system users want the system to accomplish, to design an Automated Inventory Management System, to implement a prototype and to test and validate the designed prototype. The methodology used includes Interviews, Questionnaires and observation to identify the requirements for the system. The system was designed, and the system was implemented using Ms Access 2010 and Microsoft Visual Studio 2010. Testing and validation was achieved by component, testing, bottom up integration testing, and system testing. The research findings from system design depicted fast information flow and relationship between entities. The researchers recommend that as the Company establishes branches all over the nation, the system be made web based such that all branches can use the system at the same time on the Web. The researchers also recommend that the system should be upgraded in order to report on products that have been hired out. The system can also be expanded to include information requirements for human resource management. This introduction to the research is dedicated to fully understanding the nature of the problem and coming up with a solution to it. It also explains the significance of the system to smart shoppers’.
