Stock consumption, items that sell least or sell most, items that depreciate as they sit unsold on the warehouse shelves, pieces that seem to require more repairs or replacements than do others — all these concerns can lead to much-needed changes imparted by managers and department heads. Complete information is the answer to the challenge for those whose jobs require swift and easy adjustments to make profits maximized and overhead costs limited. Decision making is made simple and complete when using SIMMS Inventory Management software.

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.

With SIMMS, each item can be set with particular aliases (vendor-specific names or numbers) and separate costs for each vendor; this enables the user to choose at any time the vendor he/she wants following quick phone calls to the various vendors to ascertain if the item is in stock.

Users can combine multiple items needed from one particular vendor onto one particular purchase order, thus providing the fluidity of purchasing most companies require. The aliases allow for the accurate selection of items with their vendor-specific details, assuring that the items you need are clearly listed for your suppliers. Users can easily access references to the vendors used and edits needed can be performed quickly and easily.

As costs change and/or items pass from usage to be replaced by different or newer pieces, old costs and items can be amended or replaced smoothly, and lists of the new items can be produced in various report forms so your sales department can keep up with the pieces your company now offers. When combined with the seamless link between SIMMS’ inventory information and industry-standard accounting features, the addition or removal of stock pieces within the system give you count control and accurate financial information so you know where the bottom line is at all times. SIMMS’ Vendor Costing feature is just one more tool that will help you keep ahead of your competition.
