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.
