It's release day! Which means that Inventory is coming in hot with a brand new batch of updates and improvements to assist in your back of house operations.
Transfers are here!
On a conceptual level, transfers refer to the movement of items between stores. For example, if location A doesn't have enough bread they might request that location B send them some.
In Inventory, users now have the ability to create transfers out, receive transfers, and track the transfers sent between their stores. To get started, simply click on the transfers tab the next time you log into Inventory.
Once transfers are completed, the items and values used in the transfer will contribute to your on-hand amounts and suggested ordering. To learn more about transfers, go here!
While adding an Invoice, users will be able to now assign an apply date to the Invoice. Users that are viewing the invoices will be able to see the date that the invoice was applied to, allowing everyone to see when the invoice was issued by the vendor.
In addition to that, while viewing an invoice, users are now able to print a physical copy of the invoice to confirm payment details to a vendor.
You can learn more about invoices and how they work by going here.
Now, while on the count page, users will have the ability to review a previously completed count, to make sure it was done correctly. While reviewing a count, users will have the ability to also view a count summary. This count summary will give users the ability to view cost information, item variance, and check any items that may have been left uncounted.
Also, similar to Invoices, users will now also have the ability to print a count transaction, giving them the ability to capture their count information on paper.
You can learn more about counts here.
Users will now receive two different Inventory related notifications depending on their place in the hierarchy.
- Above Store users will now receive a notification when an order is not submitted in time by a store.
- Store level users will receive a notification any time that an order is approaching a due by time.
You can read more about order and delivery schedules as they relate to vendors, here.
