Easy to manage stock control software for merchants
Accurate stock control automatically maintained
Maintaining accurate stock records poses one of the biggest challenges for builders merchants. Often stock levels are maintained by eye which can lead to costly inaccuracies in information.
Trader stock control software categorises products by department, group, sub group, status etc, and includes a product file which has details of all items you sell with the associated prices on. This allows the point of sale system to quickly call up items to an order, either when they are searched or scanned at the counter.
Furthermore as goods are sold through the point of sale system, stock records are automatically updated.
Automatic stock ordering
At the end of the day, week or month as required Trader stock control software produces a report which alerts you to products which are running low in stock, based on what has been sold.
This time saving report allows you to automatically generate purchase orders for suppliers to make sure there are no unnecessary delays in items coming back into stock.
Improved visibility in the performance of your stock items allows business owners to prepare for expected busy or quiet periods by keeping stock at the appropriate levels to suit demand, helping with business cashflow.
