Accurate Stock Taking

simms_stockerrors

Accurate stock-taking requires the following steps:

  1. Name the Supervisor of Stock: the Stock Supervisor is responsible for enforcing that all the procedures are followed and full counts are completed.
  2. Make clear identification: Be certain to specify identification of all damaged and redundant stock, as well as returned items and unreceived items.
  3. Set the Start Point: Your tracking method (system) needs to be static and untouched before starting the count.
  4. Focus on Details: Carefully identify materials accurately and be certain that numbers and units of measure match up.
  5. Stamp the Samples: Place marks (dates are best) on all items included in the count. This makes checking easy if the counting is interrupted or if it stretches over more than one day. The “left-off” point must be known.
  6. Second the Motion: Have a second person follow up the counts with their own independent counts. Numbers that don’t match should be re-done until they match.
  7. New Eyes See Things: When the count is complete, have someone else do a walk-through looking for stamps and seeking out odd and unusual spots for stock, and then confirm that they have been inventoried.

The Wisdom of Backup with SIMMS 2018

holding-customers

SIMMS 2018 Inventory Management system enables users to keep confident control of the security of their data and system.

  • Backing-up SIMMS Installer files should be made each time a service pack or full version is released;
  • Your company files (SIMMS databases) should be backed-up based on the standard backup schedule of your IT Department. If dozens of transactions occur each week then weekly backups are advised and can be performed manually by any administrative user.

Contact us today to learn the simple step to accomplish true security of your SIMMS system. We take great pride in continuing to build the evolving and practical software package you need to help your business grow.
