Warehouse, Inventory Management Receipt & Despatch of GoodsWarehouse, Inventory Management
Receipt & Despatch of Goods.

Warehouse, inventory management and the despatching of goods are at the heart of what INTEND facilitates.

Receipt of Goods:
  • All Purchase orders are linked with sales
    • Warehouse personnel are made aware of any sales that are processed as back-orders, against a due purchase order.
    • When the goods are received and added to stock inventory, effectively booking the goods in, notifications of linked sales are indicated.
  • When adding goods to stock, Intend provides an opportunity is to 'mark (fabric) faults'.
    • Fabric faults are marked when running a roll from one end to another. These are then displayed in reverse, as the beginning of the roll would be at the opposite end.
    • Faults locations are visually displayed on the fabric roll's (sku) swing tag label along with current quantities.
  • When adding stock into the system, fabric rolls can be added to individually, or as part of a dye print batch with associated (batch) sku referencing.
Multiple Locations:
  • Intend enables you to set up multiple warehouses and in-house stock locations via bin (grid-reference) allocation, i.e. Warehouse 1, Bin A1, or D4 etc.
    • You can change sku locations.
