    Choosing software that supports the business process in firms is a demanding problem. On the software market there is a lot to choose from and the chosen solution has to meet the firm's requirements. The decision about which software to use has a direct influence on company's profit or loss. The thesis discusses the process of choosing a software solution for inventory management in the firm Privošči si d.o.o.. The firm Privošči si sells healthy snacks in vending machines. In the first chapter I described in detail firm's core business, economic view on inventory management and firm's requirements towards a software solution for inventory management. I presented the economic view on inventory management using literature and examples from the firm Privošči si. For requirements analysis I used user stories, that is a technique for requirements analysis used in extreme programming. To acquire a better impression about which data they need to store, I made a conceptual data model. In the second part of the thesis I described the decision making process. Amongst the software solutions available on the market I selected, for more detailed analysis, three programs – three options from which I was choosing. I installed and tested all three programs. I checked if and how they satisfy Privošči si's requirements. Further on a detailed description of the user experience with executing the tasks interesting for the firm Privošči si has been given. Using the acquired knowledge I built the decision tree, which I used to evaluate the options and chose the best one. I analyzed my choice and presented the arguments to defend it. Additionally I did a what-if analysis. Vending Essentials is the software solution for inventory management, estimated as the best for the company Privošči si.
