The Inventory module is where you set up your stock items and includes the ability to enter inventory adjustments and conduct physical inventories (stock takes).

Inventory also includes user-defined ‘item characteristics’ that can be used to track variations within available stock for characteristics such as lot and serial numbers, multiple dimensions and packing units, expiration dates, grades and conditions, and more.

Stock locations can be set up to represent warehouses, service trucks, or areas within the factory or warehouse. If you want to restrict a location to certain classes of stock, you can do so. Stock can be transferred individually or in sets from one location to another.

Inventory templates enable you set up stocking levels for various sets of inventory items. Each location can be assigned an inventory template and can have its stock replenished via a location transfer. Not only is this handy for replenishing warehouses, but it’s useful for maintaining parts inventories on service trucks.

Inventory also includes a complete consignment tracking system. A stock location can be designated for company stock, customer stock, or supplier stock. You can also track items you lend to customers or borrow from suppliers, such as shipping pallets or perhaps special gauges or tools that are lent to you.
