Inventory Management

Accompanied with your involvement in the distribution industry, is a crucial need to accurately and efficiently manage your inventory; Distribution Intelligence provides you with just that. This software allows you to easily set multiple prices for each part number; allowing you to automate customer-specific pricing. The inventory application can also track assemblies and reorder points. Additionally, for later reference all histories, both buying and selling are tracked. To add yet another degree of efficiency, Distribution Intelligence features the ability to add barcodes to inventory items, eliminating errors due to incorrectly entered part numbers.

If your company deals with assemblies, Distribution Intelligence allows you to select individual items and quantities from your inventory to create assemblies (multi-level assemblies up to five levels deep are supported). If you have miscounted your inventory items, incurred theft or breakage, or for any other reason saw a reduction in inventory; Distribution Intelligence allows you to update your inventory quantities to reflect that change. The following information for each product is stored in the inventory management application:

  • Item ID - used to identify items
  • Item Description - unlimited characters used to describe item
  • Item type - one of four types: Sales Item, Service Item, Miscellaneous Item, or Assembly Item
  • Category
  • Pricing - bulk price for each item or individual customer specific prices
  • Assembly Setup - allows you to select individual items and quantities from your inventory to create assemblies

As is the case with many other applications, the inventory application has the ability to generate many reports. The following reports are created from the inventory application:

  • Assembly Report
  • Stock Status
  • Item List-detail
  • Purchase Advice
  • Item List-summary
  • Transaction History
  • Physical Inventory List
  • Assemblies in Inventory

Distribution Intelligence offers your company an array of benefits in purchasing. Purchase Orders can be easily created with minimal user data entry required. Requesting a product simply requires your staff to select a vendor from your vendor list, then select an item from the vendor’s item list; Distribution Intelligence then fills in all necessary information and creates a Purchase Order. Additionally, the software can create vouchers, which are used to enter bills that don’t involve the receipt of inventory items (e.g., utility bills). The software also automates the process of receiving orders, by recognizing the item and attaching it to the applicable Purchase Order. If you need to return merchandise to a vendor, RMAs can be created. As is the case with the other Distribution Intelligence applications, all applicable changes are processed and posted to your general ledger; additionally, postings are made to Accounts Payable where necessary.


Distribution Intelligence gives you several advantages in the area of sales. First, the software allows you to easily create and convert sales quotes into orders, and apply those as sales. Distribution Intelligence then creates an invoice for the client and for your records. If necessary, Distribution intelligence will handle all of your back order fulfillment. If you need to process returns, Distribution Intelligence can also automatically generate RMAs. The presence of a pricing multiplier option allows you to assign markup on a customer by customer basis. Batch posting allows you to enter invoices rapidly and post the transactions at a final date; especially useful with invoices that have uncertain transaction dates. With the interactivity between the Distribution Intelligence applications, you will save hours of time otherwise spent on data re-entry. Any sales made are applied to your Accounts Receivable balance automatically.
