The starting point to knowing what you have in an inventory system to identify what you're tracking. Most products have a part number, SKU, catalog number, or something similar, but not always. Is that identifier a scannable barcode? That is why barcode labels exist, you can print your own for placing it on the stocking location (just one barcode label needed) or per part (multiple barcode labels needed.) Once you've got a method for easily identifying what is coming and going you're well on your way to knowing what you have.
Everyone performs inventory management differently! The details are what makes one Inventory System different from another. An inventory management system needs to be highly configurable to some extent, meaning they are suitable for a broad range of inventory and business environments. You can create your own inventory solution that is right for you by configuring certain aspects.
Our top-rated Inventory System allows setting a pre-defined user access. For example, If a warehouse employee is only responsible for receiving inventory and relocating it, admins of the Inventory system can set role-based permissions and interface settings to simplify workflow for this user and prevent unauthorized access.
Some teams need their system to include features such as cost tracking and reorder management, while others require multi-location and serialized inventory tracking, others may only need the barcoding and mobile device capabilities. Our Inventory System allows you to include only the features that you need.
Your warehouse may not be generating the purchase orders (PO’s) or may not need to receive against them in the System. System configuration allows this functionality to be turned off. This means there won't be a PO area in the user interface, nor will there be a PO data field on screen when receiving inventory.
Inventory represents a business’s stocked goods or materials, this can be raw materials or finished goods. The terms SKU, stock and inventory are often used interchangeably. You can think of inventory as raw materials that are consumed when building an assembly, supplies to do a job, inputs in a production process, or finished goods or products sold to customers.
Typically, inventory is stored in a warehouse or storage area and the three basic attributes to identify inventory is tracked by location, SKU, and quantity. Batch or lot numbers are often used to track perishable inventory items, such as food or medications, in groups based on expiration or production dates. In addition, inventory such as parts and components can be tracked by serial numbers.
