Overview


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.

As the diagram demonstrates;

  1. Prerequisites

  • Create Sales Returns

that go straight into the Inventory module.

In the Inventory module itself, you can perform a multitude of transactions, which include:
