-- Accuracy in inventory and easy ways to track inventory are of utmost important to business. We have all been frustrated when a retailer has every size but yours or better has yours but believes the inventory is wrong. On the most basic level, our software helps users keep accurate count of inventory. Using Red Levels you can automatically re-order items before they reach a specified level. Never want to go under 10 units on hand? That is something we can automate for you. Want to know when you do in fact go below 10? We can tell you that as well. Having adequate levels of inventory helps users capitalize on sales opportunities. There is a balance though between ordering too much and it not selling. Thus we have our Purchases versus Sales report that will help you make decisions.
Some of our core features include sorting items by department or type, establishing red levels for minimum quantities and alerts when stock levels reach those thresholds. Our system also has more advanced systems like a matrix for tracking items by size, color and style and integration with purchasing modules to enable automatic generation of purchase orders. Our Matrix allows you to see detailed information about every aspect of your item. From on hand, to pricing, to receiving, to detailed sales information, everything is contained within the Matrix. It is integrated with our Show report to give you a breakdown of sales versus receiving and the software allows you to make real-time adjustments to your inventory from the same screen.
Managing your transfers between stores can also easily be done through the Matrix and Worksheets. Worksheets allow you to properly see discrepancies between what was supposed to be transferred and what ultimately was. We also have a fully integrated physical inventory system that will allow you to do a store wide, vendor wide, group wide, compare scanned, and product wide physical inventory.
A couple key reports to be on the look for are the following: wide inventory, inventory valuation, and negatives. Wide inventory gives you; the business owner a great overview of your inventory. This allows large viewings of vendor and group information. The inventory valuation report allows you to backtrack and see your inventory as of another date. The negatives report gives you a listing of your negative inventory. This can occur because of mistakes made in receiving or selling and keeping on top of negatives will allow you to keep your accurate inventory.
