SIMMS Inventory Management software provides a dynamic feature for controlling the numerous aspects of the process of Vendor Costing. Businesses often receive the same items from various vendors based upon their availability and best costs. 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.
