Hot Turnover

Most companies have only a set amount of funds to invest in inventory each year. Moving the stock you have is of paramount importance so that you can meet your overhead expenses. The rate at which you sell compared to the rate at which you buy is your turnover rate. The higher the rate, the better it is. With SIMMS Inventory Management software, you can check your item turnovers together or by individual item, and make necessary adjustments to your outlay for goods.

When combined with high ROI and high customer service satisfaction levels, you’ll be well on your way to the level of success you desire. Contact KCSI today to find out more about how SIMMS can help you toward those goals.

Stock Reduction: Avoid the Sudden Cliff

While many advantages advantages exist behind the concept of inventory reduction — not the least of which is the reduction of expenditures involved in maintaining a high stock count –a sudden change to reduced onHand quantities can be a risky step. Such a step could be like taking one more step when standing at the edge of a cliff: a beautiful view toward the open sky that is your future but spoiled quickly by that sudden stop somewhere on the rocks below.

SIMMS Inventory Management software permits the implementation of reduced stock levels, but such a move requires both pre-planning and specific steps to ensure that neither your suppliers nor your customers wind up bearing the brunt of the strain.

Lot Number Tracking

The ability to track component lots from raw material to finished product shipped to customers is a key requirement for many companies. SIMMS Inventory Management Software provides this functionality for either stocked parts. Upon receipt of lots from a vendor or from manufacturing, lot traceability provides where-used and lots-used visibility. An optional feature is the ability to designate a group of attributes that can be collected and tracked for each lot. These attributes follow the lot for the history of the lot record in the system, providing for historical quality references even after shipment.

The ability to track serialized and lot-related parts to a customer is important for warranty and service management. SIMMS Inventory Management Software provides the ability to create serial numbers and manufacturer lots at any time during manufacturing. Finished products are assigned serial numbers and/or manufacturing lots and when shipped to the customer, the serial numbers and manufacturing lots used are saved to history, providing their traceability against the original customer order.

“Open architecture” is the catch phrase for business application software and databases these days. Companies that in the past may have put up with discrete applications running stand-alone, and performed software “gymnastics” to obtain integrated reporting from their tools, are now demanding that these products work together. To facilitate this process, an industry standard known as open database connectivity (ODBC) was developed. SIMMS’ Visual Import Manager has been designed to facilitate seamless integration between SIMMS data and Microsoft Access, Microsoft Excel, CSV (comma separated value) files and TXT (text) format files.
