Resources & Stock Control
The ReQuest Resources module is used to maintin details of all the products, stock items and services used by a business. As such it supports the sales orders, purchase orders and job costing modules with ReQuest.
Key benefits enjoyed by the ReQuest user are as follows.....
- Stock minimum and maximum, purchase order quantities, recommended suppliers with pricing and purchase history all assist in making out new purchase orders and calculating requirements.
- All resources can be linked to a sales and purchase nominal for analysis when invoiced.
- Lot Control users can manage individual batches of stock perhaps with traceable serial numbers, batch references, best before dates and variable weights and costs. This facility is ideal for businesses running ISO 9002.
- Sales and purchase descriptions can be stored for each product which carry through to sales and purchase orders. These can vary per customer or supplier. Orders can also be made up using a client's product codes and printed to show both their codes and yours.
- Reports on stock levels, requirements, valuation and turnover are available on demand. The stock levels are updated in real time so the report details are always valid.
- Users can list outstanding sales and purchase orders for any given resource and link to the orders.
- With the Price Matrix option multiple selling price lists based on fixed prices or discounts can be maintained. Special prices offered to customers or by suppliers are automatically brought through during order processing and promotions or quantity breaks can be automated.
- Manufacturing users can create multi-level bills of materials with any number of assemblies and sub-assemblies. The prices for assemblies can be constructed to include fixed costs and other non-resource items in addition to lists of components and sub-assemblies. If required any changes in prices for sub-assemblies or components can update assembly prices automatically.
- Products can be sold in units different to the stocking unit. This is useful when selling packs or perhaps selling an item stocked in kilos but sold in units. Pricing and subsequent invoicing is then driven by the non-stock qty.
