Stock Control

Designed to simplify the way you manage the stock requirements of your business. Supporting various costing methods, it tracks your stock movements – even across multiple warehouses. Quarantine warehouses can be used to inspect goods prior to them being moved into stock and you can also apply different cost and selling prices for each warehouse, allowing you to arrange your stock holding how you like.

Stocktake

Stocktakes are an important part of maintaining the accuracy of a stock control system. Knowing that your stock levels are accurate means that you can take sales orders from your customers, confident that your delivery dates will be met. It also means that your stock holding accurately reflects your requirements so your purchasing and manufacturing decisions are made based on your actual stock positions. This reduces the need to hold expensive excess stock, improving cash flow and potentially reducing insurance cover.
Sales Order Processing

Generates sales documents, applies customers’ special price lists, discounts and credit limits. Also provides back to back order processing facilities when circumstances dictate, as well as part-progression of sales documents. Allocation and picking provides even greater control over the sales and delivery cycle.

Purchase Order Processing

Generates purchase documents through to supplier invoices, whilst the re-order facility assists in maintaining and controlling stock at their optimum levels. Multiple supplier documents can be optimised, creating one document for progression to a purchase order. Matching of receipts and supplier invoices back to the purchase order provides tighter control over stock and financial management.

Bill of Materials

Provides fast and accurate manufacturing information including work in progress, assembly structure detail, where used or assembly cost reports and batch/serial item location from works orders. It features automatic work order generation from sales orders, batch works order progression and a comprehensive enquiry facility. Assembly structures can be simple or complex, including sub assemblies and components such as raw materials, labour or description only. The kitting function allows further flexibility by enabling works orders to be raised and receive the build quantity of the finished assembly into stock in a single process. 

Landed Costs

Landed costs are the additional costs incurred in getting goods you purchase from your supplier to your premises. The total cost of a landed shipment includes the purchase price of the goods, freight costs, insurance, warehousing and other costs. In some instances, it may include customs duties and other taxes that may be levied on a shipment.
