Inventory involves managing your product levels and efficiently getting your stock in and out of the system accurately. Maintaining up to date product data is imperative to the success of the system. In Unleashed, the Inventory module enables you to manage your inventory management, with regard to stock management, and when you have Stock On Hand. The inventory module provides you with:
- access to view and edit products
- move products to warehouses, and
- edit stock on hand via a stock take or stock adjustment options available.

that go straight into the Inventory module.
- Inventory Module
In the Inventory module itself, you can perform a multitude of transactions, which include:
- Making transactions

Once you have set up and managed your Inventory —within the Unleashed Inventory module— you can view any transactions you have made that will go to your Sales and Production modules.
