Item Replenishment with SIMMS

SIMMS’ Software Replenishment module helps you manage demand/backordered quantities on sales orders. After a sales order contains backordered items, the items are then listed in the Replenishment Module. This module is designed to process all backorders and items that have reached their reorder points. The Replenishment Module promotes the creation of batch purchase orders that are based on stock reorder values and customers’ demand quantities on transactions.

Serving as an enhancement of the Backorder Manager, you can monitor and manage items’ most pressing order needs in an easy and quick fashion.

In order to be successful, meeting the demands that your clients have is of crucial importance. Overstocking produces lower profit margins, higher storage costs, and aged goods remaining on your shelves; conversely, when clients cannot get items in time you lose sales and possibly the clients as well. SIMMS’ Replenishment module helps you calculate these delicate balances so you always have the stock you need but never have warehouses sitting idle with stock – in short, you achieve proper inventory management — the very goal of the SIMMS Inventory system.

Lead times for vendors and the cost of overhead are factored into the equation, and other items often received from those same vendors allow you to maximize your ordering and re-ordering. The automatic creation of purchase orders, streamlining of reduced cost, and management of employee time allow you to physically manage your inventory so that it always is where it needs to be.

Replenish Stock with Transfers


When an item is understocked in one location and the need arises for purchases to be made to replenish the other item in another location, transfers are a smart way to reduce inventory, provided that the additional warehousing and transportation expenses are not so high that the reduction in holding cost does not exceed the cost to transfer.

You will satisfy your customers by maintaining sufficient quantities of products to meet expected demands. Balance inventory carrying costs with customer service levels, and cut expenses, including write-offs and mark-downs, associated with keeping excess stock on hand. You can calculate optimal order points, safety stock, and order quantities automatically so the right amount of the right materials are available at the right time. You should be able to easily override any replenishment suggestions and other planning factors.

The costs of the replenishment of stock in one location can be lowered by using stock transfers incoming from others of your locations. Proper stock management needs versatile sub-routines in place in order to keep the supply line for stock for sale.

SIMMS Inventory Management software coordinates all types of replenishment, stock transfers and reordering processes. For more information, visit www.simmssoftware.com or email sales@kcsi.ca today.
