SIMMS’ Software Replenishment module helps you manage
demand/backordered quantities on sales orders. After a sales order contains
backordered items, the items are then listed in the Replenishment Module. This
module is designed to process all backorders and items that have reached their
reorder points. The Replenishment Module promotes the creation of batch purchase
orders that are based on stock reorder values and customers’ demand quantities
Serving as an enhancement of the Backorder Manager, you can monitor
and manage items’ most pressing order needs in an easy and quick fashion.
In order to be successful, meeting the demands that your
clients have is of crucial importance. Overstocking produces lower profit
margins, higher storage costs, and aged goods remaining on your shelves;
conversely, when clients cannot get items in time you lose sales and possibly
the clients as well. SIMMS’ Replenishment module helps you calculate these
delicate balances so you always have the stock you need but never have
warehouses sitting idle with stock – in short, you achieve proper inventory
management — the very goal of the SIMMS Inventory system.
Lead times for vendors and the cost of overhead are factored into the equation, and other items often received from those same vendors allow you to maximize your ordering and re-ordering. The automatic creation of purchase orders, streamlining of reduced cost, and management of employee time allow you to physically manage your inventory so that it always is where it needs to be.

distinguish themselves from the competition. Rich Internet Applications (RIAs)
are Web apps that embody most of the characteristics of a desktop application.

Working in conjunction with SIMMS Online, SIMMS’ Tool Crib software allows workers to check out and return tools and equipment using a simple-to-use web-based application and barcode reader.
Workers scan their ID Card badge to start the process and
then scan the item barcode and/or item serial number of the item(s) they are using.
The worker next confirms that the list matches their inventory and proceeds to
then chooses whether they are checking out or returning inventory. Each and
every time that item is “checked out” or “checked in” the transactions are
recorded in your system, time-stamped, attributed to the user allowing you to
see who performed the transactions, when and why.
With Tool Crib, you can:
• Enhance chain-of-custody tracking
• Increase visibility of tools and equipment status and
• Improve productivity and employee efficiency by allowing
tool crib attendants to focus on more important tasks
• Read multiple tool tags per transaction resulting in
• Reduced tool crib labor costs
Using a comprehensive tool, location, serial number and
employee database, coupled with a simple and accurate bar code based
transaction system, Tool Crib software tracks the issue and return of assets to
employees and contractors, and the transfer of assets between various
warehouse, job-site and tool room locations even fleet vehicles. You can easily
manage your tool and equipment inventory using scanner and bar code technology,
enabling workers to quickly get and return the tools they require with or
without a tool crib attendant while still keeping the employee accountable for

One of the ways KCSI has built its business has been to
deliver outstanding customer service. At KCSI, we have maintained a two hour
call return policy. A great deal of the people who call us never expect a
response, figuring that there’s nobody here behind the website to help them.
When someone answers the phone, people frequently say, “I can’t believe you
answered the phone. I never expected to get a real person!”
The truth is that the only people who ever find out about
our two hour call return policy are those who call us after business hours. In
terms of email, wait time might be about the same, but most often is less. Backlogs
of emails from the night before require some nimble responses, but you will
hear back from us as quickly as humanly possible. After all, your response time
to your customers represent your company’s reputation, and can have powerful
and dramatic repercussions.
For instance, let’s say a possible client is choosing custom
software and your company is neck-and-neck in terms of qualifications. 83% of
the time, the would-be client will leave a message with both companies, and
then wait – and they’ll ultimately choose the company that got back to them
first. They have a right to expect that top level of service. And as the
powerful result of that service quality, YOU have the right to expect that they
will mention your software – and its customer service quality — to others.
So imagine, you get free referrals based only on a high
quality service that you ALREADY provide. You can’t get much more for your
support dollar than that, a support dollar you already have marked in your

When you use SIMMS you can employ the versatile feature of Categorization. In addition
to categorizing stock into generic groups, users can take advantage of using
sub-categorization to monitor inventory sales and transactions for the benefit
of profit margins and/or pinpointing which items are not selling and conclude
if any problems are contributing to that condition.
From their creation in your SIMMS inventory system, items begin to acquire
historical records of acquisition, usage, repair and turnover. Using this
cumulative data can keep users on top of accurate data that reveal the
information needed to make fiscal and logical decisions needed to be made.
Thus, the decision of items’ categorization should be given much consideration
so that this data advantage can be exercised to optimum effectiveness.
Categorizing merchandise with SIMMS is both quick and easy, and when
combined with SIMMS’ versatile and comprehensive reporting capabilities, you
gain the edge not available in other inventory software packages. Management of
your business can be much smoother and robust once categorization becomes one
of your first decisions when you acquire SIMMS, optimizing your information and
maximizing your profit margin.
