The Inventory Control Package is designed to either operate stand-alone or in conjunction with the Order Processing/Invoicing and/or Purchasing Packages. It provides for multiple warehouse locations and can function in a multi-company environment. All inventory items can be easily accessed by keying in a partial description of the item, the item number or a user defined keyword for the item. Item pricing may be by quantity break, product class or any one of six different price levels. Serial number/warranty tracking is optionally available for each item. Serial numbered and non-serial numbered items are both handled by the package and both types of items can coexist in the system at the same time.

Main Package Features:

Items may be accessed by keying in either the item number (up to 14 alphanumeric characters), a partial description of the item (up to 29 alphanumeric characters) or a user defined 'keyword' (up to 16 alphanumeric characters). In those cases where multiple items may share the same partial description or keyword, a qualifier may also be keyed in for a more specific selection. For example, keying in 'BOLT' will cause all bolts to display, whereas keying in 'BOLT, BRASS' will cause only brass bolts to display.

Each item may optionally have multiple line descriptions, providing for more detailed item descriptions when necessary.

Each item may be priced by quantity break, product class or any one of up to six different price levels.

Items may be stocked in one unit of measure and priced in another (i.e. stocked by the 'foot' and priced by the 'hundred feet').

Items may be costed either by standard cost, average cost or last cost.

Automatic conversion from purchase unit of measure to stock unit of measure occurs at inventory receipt time.

Provides automatic conversion from stock item number to primary vendor item number for purchasing purposes.

Provides for unlimited vendors for purchasing.

Maintains summary vendor price quotes and last purchase price by date, for all vendors for each item.
