SIMMS Inventory is Top-Line

SIMMS_logoAs a company grows, it is also expected that extra effort should be invested toward inventory control. In the past, companies only relied on manual inventory systems before computers came along. There are two types of inventory system: perpetual and periodic. Periodic uses physical count with intervals to be able to monitor inventory at a lesser time consumed. Every business whether large or small needs a complete list of merchandise or stocked goods. For a business that has a pile of papers anywhere does not only indicate a non-friendly working space but should also be a threat to the owner if they can still keep track of the meritorious records of the company. A piece of paper for some is worthless but for company owners, every piece of paper inside the office has its value more than anyone can imagine.

Perpetual inventory features updates to the manual record on a daily basis. This is done to strictly see the count of items on the inventory list and work closely on it to avoid any delay in replenishment. Today, inventory management requires a computerized system for a better safekeeping of records and avoiding any deterioration that might occur through the aging of documents. This is where SIMMS Inventory Management software comes in.

Accurate Inventory

A sound inventory philosophy will help your company retain its leading edge and its authority, regardless of the sudden circumstances. Programmers at KCSI have worked for nearly two decades to master all aspects of inventory management, and have rolled this expertise into their flagship software application, SIMMS 2014.

One of the more important aspects of inventory management success is utter reliance upon proper and thorough record keeping. For any company to acquire and retain complete control of its stock it must permanently consider the efficiency and accuracy of its record keeping methods. In addition, regular audits must be conducted to make certain that the on-hand counts are correct. Precise record keeping will help prevent overstocking as well as preventing stock shortages and consequently loses potential sales.
