Inventory Control

Inventory Control

One of the biggest factors in cash flow management is the effective management of inventory levels because inventory is one of the largest investments a company makes. A good software solution needs to provide you with up to date information on what’s in stock, where it’s located, how much of it you sell, and when you will run out. Without this information you run the risk of stock outs and overstocks which in turn can produce inferior customer service and reduced profitability due to lost sales and high carrying costs.

The Fitrix Inventory module provides you with the tools to effectively manage your inventory. Your on hand quantities are updated when the purchase order is received or the production work order completed. During order entry you can see what is on hand, what is allocated to customer orders and the order detail, what is on backorder and the order detail, and what is due to be received and the estimated receipt date. Also included is extensive reporting capabilities, maintenance programs for physical counts and adjustments, and the ability to maintain inventory in multiple distribution centers.
