One truth inventory software

  • Model different SKU types

Supported SKU types

You can model and track SKU by:

Stock: just plain stock units.

Lot / Batch: assign and record overarching tracking identifiers at SKU instance level.

Serialized: assign and track serial numbers.

Assembly: specify bill of materials (BOM) including overhead and labor costs, build and break finished units.

Track every SKU instance

Our inventory management software can store the Item or SKU as an instance of itself. Each instance created has a unique identifier (id) as well as its SKU or item code.

When an instance is created the user can set its quantity specific to how it needs to be tracked. If the quantity is set to 1 then the Item will be tracked as a single Item i.e. by serial number.

If the quantity is set to greater than 1, then the Item would be tracked overall as a group i.e. by lot or batch.

Track inventory

Units of measure

You can specify the quantitative relationships between how a SKU is purchased, stocked and sold. For example, you purchase a bottled product in cases of 12 (purchase unit = 12), stock as single units (stock unit = 1), and sell in boxes of four (sales unit = 4). Our system automatically calculates and aligns the changes in stock levels.

Multipacks

Multipacks protect items and increase the efficiency of pick tasks. Fragile items packed together are protected by an outer layer of packing. Multiple items in a single pack are easier to transport.  To specify the internal quantity, you can assign a barcode to packs with multiple Items. Our solution automatically changes stock quantities in the pick process to match the internal quantity.

Volume, weight, dimensions

You can record item physical dimensions and their associated metrics e.g. 20lb on the respective Item (SKU) master. For weight and volume sales orders and shipments track and sum dimensions to support shipping processes.

Classes

Classes enable you to exploit joined-up sales, fulfillment, and accounting data.

Classes are available on every SKU, transaction and trading partner type (customer, supplier, worker). Classes are a column on the general ledger.

Every report type can leverage classes to segment data sets and sharpen focus.

Categories and attributes​

Categories segment your products by family i.e. manufacturer, purpose, model etc.

Categories assist your stakeholders to search and report. Attributes segment your products by technical detail such as dimension i.e. weight, capacity, or a measure such as voltage.

You can specify and add multiple categories and attributes to SKUs.

Custom field(s)

You can add custom fields to SKU masters to increase clarity and refine reporting.

All transaction and trading partner lists, and reports can leverage custom fields to assist search and segment data.

The range of custom field types e.g. drop down list, date, etc provide support for just about any data type.

Versatile price lists

Advanced price lists (APL) provide a flexible way of specifying pricing rules, either across all items or specific Items/customers/suppliers.

Price lists allow you to specify:

  • Price lists for customers, suppliers or both.
  • Price lists for any given currency
  • Global price discounts eg. 10% off all items.
  • Global/specific quantity discounts.
  • Global total order value discounts.
  • Pricing formulas based on Item, customer/supplier, class, etc.
  • Whether or not a SKU is for sale to a customer.

Price lists extend to the Trade Acceleration Portal (TAP).

Automate PO generation

Purchase order generators (POG) eliminate spreadsheets, hours of work, and automatically generate requisite purchase orders.

The built in purchase order generators (POG) can automatically collate, analyze, and aggregate the SKUs needed to replenish stock or fulfill back orders.

You can specify the preferred supplier names, minimum order value and quantities, last known costs, and lead times on every SKU so as the purchase order generators (POG) produces informed insights for purchase order decisions.
