Item Replenishment with SIMMS

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 on transactions.

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.

Sales On-The-Fly with SIMMS

SIMMS Inventory Management software features a useful tool for users needing the optimum speed to process either a receipt of goods or an invoice: Quick Transactions. Users, when they first implement the SIMMS system, can create in the system their most-used vendor and most-used customer. If these two are the firm with which the company conducts the most business, and are the first vendor and customer, respectively, that are created in SIMMS then the Quick Receipt and Quick Issue tool can be employed.

Found under the Modules>Custom menu, a rapid purchase can be processed easily under Quick Receipt. Unlike on the normal receipt of goods screen where a vendor must be selected and other vendor-related details need be entered or selected, the Quick Receipt window does not require these since, as the primary vendor, those details are already in the system. Simply open the window, choose the item(s) and its quantity and select the location into which the item(s) that is being used, then save the receipt. Similarly on the sales side, the Quick Issue window permits a rapid sale to the primary customer in the SIMMS system; the items, and the location from which they are pulled, are requested and then the transaction is saved.

In business, the need for speed and accuracy is tangible as workflow and vendor/customer satisfaction is a necessary concern, SIMMS can enable the separation of priorities, and keep the flow moving. By keeping transactions that have to be done quickly and easily as simple as possible, SIMMS users can put the minimum of time into using the system and focus their time on more pressing matters. More complex transactional requirements are also easily implemented so that time spent using SIMMS is a rapid and complete as possible. For the most rapid processes, however, SIMMS’ Quick Transactions feature are yet another tool available to users of the program, which leads the market by inclusion of features that best suit the needs of business both large and small.
