Precise Furniture Inventory Tracking
Precise Inventory Tracking maintains real-time updates of inventory quantities and statuses across your supply chain. Audit tracking by user and store location minimizes inventory shrinkage.
Flexible Stock Adjustments
STORIS’ furniture retail inventory control system allows for updates of multiple stock adjustments from a single, user-friendly screen. This includes quantity adjustments, product status, pricing, discounting, transfers, write-offs, vendor chargebacks, special order details and more.
Just-in-Time Inventory Management
Just-in-Time Inventory Management optimizes fulfillment based on stock levels and customer demand. Establish precise on-hand quantities by product and vendor settings to determine when to reserve merchandise for a customer’s delivery date. Have that inventory available “just in time” without over carrying, increasing available cash flow.
STORIS intuitively alerts buyers to time-sensitive back orders when inventory needs to be replenished. The system automatically generates a purchase order that can be reviewed and sent out with the click of a button to maximize fulfillment.
Inventory Flow as recommended by STORIS is the First In, First Out method. FIFO reduces the age of inventory across your accounting and maintains accurate valuations. By calculating cost based on the oldest purchased piece compared to the current selling price, your business will maintain ideal margins. Other methods include Minimized Picks & Reclaim Space.
