Our Inventory System combines desktop system, barcode scanners, barcode labels, and mobile devices to track inventory levels, orders, maintenance events, and locations. Inventory items can flow through a warehouse quickly, therefore tracking these items with our powerful System is essential for smooth functioning. This could be a single stockroom or multiple warehouses across the country.
At its core, an inventory system works by tracking two main functions of your stockroom or warehouse — receiving (incoming) and shipping (outgoing). An inventory system also includes tracking movement, relocation, raw materials (decremented) and finished goods (incremented). Physical inventory counts may be utilized for accurate tracking of inventory levels as well.
Automated monitoring of stock levels gives your business consistent, accurate and current information across all your locations.
You can set a predetermined minimum quantity and be automatically alerted when inventory falls below that value. This will ensure that adequate stock is always available.
Controlled inventory is an accurate inventory. With an accurate inventory, your business is less likely to have issues with quantity on hand.
The goal of Inventory System is to accurately know current inventory levels and minimize understock and overstock situations. Whether you are tracking inventory used to perform a service or sold to customers, a barcode inventory solution provides staff accountability and minimizes inventory stockouts and shrinkage. By efficiently tracking quantities across stocking locations you’ll have insight and be able to make smarter inventory decisions. An inventory system provides the necessary knowledge both for the warehouse worker to perform daily tasks and management to have product and financial insight.
You'll spend less time on inventory stock control and reduce understock and overstock.
Eliminate data entry errors by using mobile barcode scanners to scan stock item barcodes.
Share inventory data with colleagues and standardize inventory system tasks
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 in 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! Yes the core idea is the same, but the details are what makes one system different from another.An inventory management system need to be 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 personalizing certain aspects.
If a warehouse employee is only responsible for receiving inventory and relocating it, admins can set role based permissions and interface settings to simplify workflow for this user and prevent unauthorized access.
Your warehouse may not be generating the purchase orders (PO’s) or may not need to receive against them in the software. 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.
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 or for light manufacturing a Kitting Module. Our Inventory System allows you to include only the features that you need.
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.
