"Do I have enough in stock to ship this item to the customer?". How many times a day are you looking for the answer to this question?
One of the key tasks for most wholesale companies is keeping stock as low as possible, without affecting the reliability of the deliveries too much. One should be able to make quick and easy decisions on the following questions:
This app provides the user with some powerful insights: in the order lines (sales, transfer, assembly), we have added a colored indicator that tells the user whether the the order line can be shipped: a green indicator means: "sufficient stock to cover all of the current needs". An orange indicator tells the user that there is currently no stock, but enough replenishment is already planned. And a red indicator means that the new replenishment should be planned, otherwise there will be a shortage for the item. Besides these basic functions, we have added some combinations of the aforementioned colors.
"But what if I assemble items?"
The app will provide you with insight in the stock of the required materials as well! Sales lines with items that have an "assemble-to-order" policy, will have a distinctive indicator, that shows if the item can be assembled at that moment (= green structure) or that replenishment is already planned for all items (= orange structure) etc.
"OK, I get visualizations that tell me the availability of order lines. But I am still missing insight in when to ship these items."
Yes, we know that it can be a time consuming task to manually check the orders to see what is available for shipping. We created a page that gives you an overview of all the sales orders that still need to be shipped with all the indicators present on the order. When you click on an order, the details of the order are displayed in the same page. Do you only want to see the orders that can be shipped right now? Just click on the "Show Only to Ship" button.
