Happy release day! On today's episode, we have another new Inventory feature to help make your day to day back-office operations run just a little bit smoother.
The unpredictable is an incessant force when running a restaurant. A surprise rain shower could lower your guest counts. Or maybe you have to reshape your entire schedule due to a surprise employee illness.
The unpredictable can even extend into your relationship with vendors, where you may be surprised by an invoice containing an item that you've never ordered before. In turn, this can throw off your receiving, counting, & tracking of the surprise item and the invoice it is attached to.
Enter Exception Items in Inventory. Now, anytime that a vendor sends an electronic invoice into Inventory containing items that do not match any known items in their item catalog, Inventory will flag them as an exception.
Using a series of steps, Admins will have the ability to:
- add these flagged exceptions to the vendor list
- link them to existing Inventory items
- assign them to locations in their hierarchy
- and reconcile the on-hand amounts for the inventory items they are linked to.
