SIMMS: Simplicity and Precision in Equal Parts

Web authors everywhere — and in this day-and-age they really seem to exist EVERYWHERE — always want something. Perhaps it’s attention to fuel their tiny egos. Perhaps it’s because they want you to pay them money for some useless but pretty bauble. It just might be that they are some sort of genius and just like to have a web presence for their fans to bask in their glory. But on occasion, and only just occasionally, they might have something to say of value. They might just raise a point or two that settles an argument or provides a service. One such company is Kornyk Computer Solutions International. If you’re seeking an inventory management software solution, visit www.kornyk.com and spend a minute having a look at the SIMMS system. You’ll be glad you did.

Using Departments in SIMMS

Inventory stored in your backrooms, warehouses, bins and so forth are of utmost importance to the way that you make profits improve. Stock needs to be where it needs to be. Too much stock means wasted capital on materials that are just sitting there growing old. Too little stock makes your staff scramble to keep up with demands that hit your doorstep every day. Both conditions are unsatisfactory.

The method used by many businesses is to compartmentalize the orders being made so that flaws can become more easily apparent. This division of the processes in place at your locations is best done by the assignment of departments, so that those who overstock and those who understock can have the information on their trends become an important criterion that is monitored. One department may have someone who panicks and over-orders materials, while another department always seems to be waiting to act because there’s never enough stock on hand to complete the orders. Once departments are created, and SIMMS users are assigned to them, it becomes easy to track where the strengths and weaknesses reside.

Orders have their departmental data attached to them and move through the system with all their green flags and red flags intact and unalterable once they exist. Take advantage of these departmental ‘assignments’ by using SIMMS Inventory Management software — your bottom line will not regret knowing what is being stored and what is not.

Using Manufacturer’s Lots to Enhance Accuracy

Manufacturer’s Lots come with a wide variety of details and information. Some are multi-digit numbers, some are nothing but letters that spell nothing sensible to you. Some are a mix of the two.  When you assign them upon the receipt of stock, they can become useful tools for deciding many of the possible future uses for those items.

Some stock is ordered in for a particular process or project. Some is received to cover the anticipated requirement for orders that will be placed in the not-too-distant future. SIMMS permits users to include any required usage information in manufacturer’s lot fields so that stock on hand cannot be pulled into projects on-the-fly. This data being available for assembly users, or sales agents, guarantees that all stock onHand is clearly devoted or clearly available.

Lot information can be entered on purchase orders so that upon receipt the stock is committed immediately to a particular kitting (BOM) build or assigned to a larger projectfor which it is required. Lot assignment is also a useful method that can be used to track items long after the day they have been rolled into a process or sold directly off the shelf. This type of tracking is particularly useful for indentifying items that may have a history of replacement or repair, as well as more readily locating those pieces that have a sound history of functionality. SIMMS Inventory Management software allows users to achieve these results through simple data entry fields, both as items enter the system or later once the items are already in stock.

Time, Accuracy and Turnover: The Three Goals of Inventory Management

A comprehensive inventory and accounting solution need not break your bank account — in fact, good ones help you profit in numerous ways. One criterion is time — doing the least hands-on interaction puts growth of the business and revenues at the forefront of your day-to-day duties. SIMMS Inventory Management software helps you optimize your manpower investments on the tasks of customer satisfaction while demanding very little time to cross the ‘t’s and dot the ‘i’s.

In concert with time comes accuracy — exactly what you need in the exact location you need it when the customer calls. SIMMS’ multi-location tracking features ensure that customers get the goods they need no matter which location they contact or visit. Rates of consumption, knowledge of levels of stock replenishment and the foresight to know what items are always required comes to every user of SIMMS easily and quickly due to its robust analytics and reporting capabilities.

The third profit requirement of inventory is turnover — turning the stock you purchase back into an increased cash flow as soon as possible. Whether you process large orders or small, or deliver items across a counter locally or ship them internationally, the physical movement of stock is vital to the success of your business. These many orders have to flow efficiently and smoothly, and the versatility of SIMMS is at your command to help you achieve your goals. Clean and quick, easy but precise, SIMMS Inventory Management software is affordable, clean, quick, easy and precise enabling you to break the bank but not break your bank account.

The Magic of Uncommitted Transactions

SIMMS Inventory Management software possesses a feature that allows the user to control their business process: Uncommitted Transactions. This unique advantage gives SIMMS users an advantage not found in other software packages. Often, software processes are a very binary state — either transactions are created and saved or they simply do not exist. SIMMS, however, employs a versatile feature to expand on this common but basic need.

Sometimes the user may wish to not complete a sale or receipt of goods but at the moment only enter of select the stock items that will be involved in the transaction. Perhaps they only wish to process a receipt of goods early while they await the actual arrival of the shipment. Uncommitted transactions are the answer.

In other software, if users create a transaction and do not save it, the work is lost when the transaction screen is closed, just as if the transaction had never been made. In SIMMS, the transaction can have all its details entered or selected and then can be closed. Such transactions are retained in the system, and can be re-opened at a later juncture, additional details or edits can be made to it and then can be finally be saved as committed transactions. This advantage is available to all users of SIMMS Inventory Management Software, and is just one additional advantage of which users can take an accounting leg-up on the competition.
