Majority of stores will order using a minimum and maximum method, making re-ordering of your stock as simple as choosing a supplier and pressing ‘GO’. Since many stores have seasonal lines, rest assured you can set different minimums and maximums based on different times of the year or week.
Sales Based Ordering
Clothing lines especially may find that they are more suited to being replenished by re-ordering just what they have sold. Alternatively, a new store can re-order based on what was sold as a quick way of getting an order together without having to count products and set re order levels straight away.
Are you ordering too much or too little? Why not get your system to look at your sales history and perhaps suggest more effective reorder levels? Charts and figures are available for each product both whilst ordering and throughout the system, including your mobile phone!
Checking the order once it arrives can be actioned using pen and a printout, on the screen itself , on a back office, your till or using the handheld PDA. With the press of a button, all items checked can then be entered into stock straightaway, making the whole order process streamlined and quick. You could then run reports as to how well a supplier performs over a year.
