Tech Trade Availability Indicators
“Do I have enough in stock to ship this item to the customer?”. How many times a day are you looking for the answer to this question?
One of the key tasks for most wholesale companies is keeping the stock as low as possible, without affecting the reliability of the deliveries too much. One should be able to make quick and easy decisions on the following questions:
• Which shipping dates can I promise to my customer?
• Which orders can be shipped now?
This app provides the user with some powerful insights: in the orderlines (sales, transfer, assembly), we have added a colored indicator that tells the user whether the the order line can be shipped: a green indicator means: “sufficient stock to cover all of the current needs”. An orange indicator tells the user that there is currently no stock, but enough replenishment is already planned. And a red indicator means that the new replenishment should be planned, otherwise there will be a shortage for the current item. Besides these basic functions, we have added some combinations of the aforementioned colors.
“But what if I assembly items?”
The app will provide you with insight in the stock of the required materials as well! Sales lines with items that have an “assemble-to-order” policy, will have a destinctive indicator, that shows if the item can be assembled at the current moment (=green indicator with a structure symbol) or that replenishment is already planned for all items (orange structure icon) etc.
“OK, I get visualisations that tell me the availability of order lines. But I am still missing insight in when to ship these items”
Yes, we know that it can be a time consuming task to manually check the orders to see what is available for shipping. We created a page that presents you an overview of all the sales orders that still need to be shipped with all the colors that are present on the order. When you click on an order, the details of the order are displayed in the same page. Do you want to see only the orders that have can be shipped right now? Just click on the button “Show Only to Ship”. The user has the ability to print a warehouse report and post the shipment as well.
