In this busy life we all should take – or make – time to
smell the flowers, to enjoy the simple things, and especially we should
remember that life for us only comes around once. We each lead separate lives,
despite our common experiences as we grow. And most of us – practically ALL of
us – have to contend with what we do for a living. We need to earn and pay and
earn more and pay more and so on. So our abilities to do our jobs are never
solely based on our acquired skills or our natural born talent.
We still employ tools to achieve the results of our labors.
Some are fortunate to have the use of wonderful tools, that make work so easy
at times that it resembles play. The tools fit our hands, and produce the
results we wanted, seemingly every time. This most often goes beyond any
ergonomic designs, it’s simply because we are using the right tools for the
job. When it comes to the tedious but necessary process of taking stock of
supplies – of ANY materials, honestly – wouldn’t it be nice to find a way to
make it quicker and easier?
If you need to make accurate inventory management as a
higher priority for your business but don’t want to devote hours and hours to achieving
that goal, visit www.simmssoftware.com
today and have a quick look at SIMMS Inventory Management. You’ll find there the
very tool you’ve been missing all this time to make work as enjoyable as play.
Often your customers have a name or number for items that they require for them to do what they do. Equally, your own vendors have an in-house reference for stock pieces that they sell to you.
In both cases, these names and references are often different than the ones you use. SIMMS Inventory Management software takes these into consideration by allowing you to assign aliases — in unlimited amounts — to the items you stock and designate these aliases to specific vendors and/or customers. Therefore, when your order arrives at a vendor, they see not only your names and numbers, but they also can see their own, which leads to greater accuracy from their shipping department. Similarly, your shipments to your customers arrive with invoices and packing slips bearing item references instantly familiar to their receiving departments.
Contact KCSI today to learn more about the use of aliases to contribute to greater accuracy and satisfaction at all steps of your stock management.
The calculation of landed costs for your stock items can require a slide rule, an abacus and a compass at times. Lacking familiarity with the correct formulas needed to calculate the numbers you need before your markup goes on top can make this a challenge to the best of your inventory personnel.
SIMMS Inventory Managementautomatically calculates landed costing for you, assuring the accuracy of your projected profits and letting you focus more time on other matters. Contact KCSI today to learn how SIMMS can take care of this task automatically for you.
The SIMMS Work Order Module allows you to issue work orders, tracking both schedules and costs within the manufacturing process. Monitor costs, works-in-progress and variances within your particular process while committing both manpower and equipment in their most efficient ways. Comprehensive reports keep you on top of the activities involved, letting you know how much stock will be required for current and future assemblies.
SIMMS Inventory Management software’s Item Valuation features permit users to implement within the system the valuation method that best suits their company’s needs. A choice of six leading-edge valuation methods makes SIMMS the most comprehensive package on the market today. Whether your business is in the service industry, providing products or goods, or wanting to be a greater competitor in your local or national economy, valuation is an important decision to help you keep on top of your market.
Overall FIFO (First-in, First-Out), Local FIFO, LIFO (Last-In, First-Out), Average, Weighted Average and Standard Valuation provide different advantages, depending on the needs of your company. The first principal of inventory management is to stock only the goods that you have a demand for. The second principal is convert stock items back into cash as soon as possible. SIMMS can help you achieve those two important goals.
In today’s economy, inventory turnover is of utmost importance. While dealing with rising prices for raw materials and a demand for a wide array of goods required by your customers, the wise choice is to plan for tax savings and the avoidance of debt — companies need to invest money only in stock that is selling, and not base their payments for stock on future sales: they win by owning the items in their warehouse outright, and organizing themselves to most efficiently move the stock out the door. Maximizing your cash flow and minimizing your tax burden and debt load should be the goal, and SIMMS Item Valuation features allow you to employ the best method to help you succeed.

Users of SIMMS Inventory Management software can reconcile credit card, cash, and checking information, manage bank accounts and deposits and transferal of funds smoothly and easily with SIMMS’ Banking features. Accounting requirements can be a challenge to those who are not trained accountants, but SIMMS makes those structured and necessary steps easy to create, edit and manage using intuitive and easy-to-understand screens.
While other software packages require users to master complex accounting procedures and manually implement them, SIMMS has been created using the input of accountants, whose suggestions and focus on the most important information have contributed to the easy and practical steps included in the initial setup of SIMMS. This way, none of the most important settings are missed and none of the data requested during the setup is left as something confusing to the user. Addition of secondary data takes place during the secondary steps of setup, enabling SIMMS users to realize which information is the most important.
Whether it is in the management of the user’s various accounts, or the tracking of balances due and payment history from customers or to vendors, their details are easily entered or amended within the program. This seamless combination of top-level stock management and leading-edge accounting practices make SIMMS’ Banking features THE choice for small to medium sizes businesses everywhere.
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.
