Stock Control

Business Software You Won’t Outgrow

Stock Control & Inventory Management

Stock Control helps manage the inventory you’re carrying, have ordered, are issuing to customers or are consigning or transferring. Produce reorder reports, over-stock reports, slow moving stock reports, dead-stock reports, as well as list top selling or poor selling stock based on sales, units moved, profit margins or mark-ups & other criteria. Click to show pending purchase orders, customer sales or back orders for each product. Easily refer your customer to a reseller who is holding stock or estimate the arrival of your next delivery with a few clicks of your mouse. Stock items may have up to 25 standard price assignments, in addition to unlimited discounts & special price rules. Last cost, average cost, foreign currency buy or sell, tax, retail, wholesale, trade or whatever is required, can be added. With security on, user-specified prices can also be ‘hidden’ by user access level.

Products & Parts

Stock items can be held and transferred between an unlimited number of locations. Search by product code, description, supplier group, stock group, stock ID, or alternate product codes (such as the supplier part number or bar codes), serial number, batch number or even add your own user-defined fields. Multiple searches can be performed simultaneously. Being able to find the product you want quickly, whether you are dealing with a bar coded stock label, supplier invoice or customer receipt (which often use different codes to identify the same goods), can save an enormous amount of time.
Features #1

Long Product Codes

From 10-25 character stock codes or create your own stock searchable fields for even longer codes.

10 Million Limit

Up to 10,000,000 stock records per company.      

Unlimited Descriptions

Up to 40 character descriptions per line with no practical limit to the number of lines.      

User Defined Screen

Re-arrange the ordering of existing fields, remove unwanted fields and add user defined fields to the system. Up to 6 pages of stock related information may be retained per record. Formulas and scripts can be placed ‘behind’ fields to permit special calculations to be performed. Rename Fields All field names may be renamed. For example, ‘Product code’ can become "Part Number", etc.    

Copy Record

Copy details of an existing record into a new record during stock entry by pressing Shift and Add.   Nominate which fields to copy and which to re-type.    

Track Stock Quantities

Maintains stock on hand, stock on order, stock carried but allocated or reserved, stock consigned, stock on back order, stock on back order but held at customer request, maximum and minimum recommended quantity levels and floor stock level.      

Unlimited Notes

Stock items may have note/product information with no practical size limit.

Multiple Suppliers

Stock archives can be used track pricing for more than one supplier. List of matching entries from multiple archive/price list files automatically presented.

Powerful, Flexible

The stock control screen is user configurable so extra information can be added or non- applicable information removed. Up to six screens of stock information can be added and searched on.

Unique Tracing & Tracking

Stock control also supports Unique Stock Tracing, the ability to maintain serial/batch numbers, sizes, colours, styles, and up to 250 user definable ‘extended’ properties. Unique Stock Tracking allows CAPITAL to handle tracking problems such as stock consigned from suppliers, product versions/revisions, multiple bin locations, variations in purchase prices from suppliers and many other applications. CAPITAL can automatically create purchase orders based on low stock levels, customer orders, sales history (performance) and back orders. Lead times and supplier minimum order quantities are also considered. In organizations where ordering is a major task, up to 90 per cent of the manual work can be eliminated.

Stock Kits

Stock kits allow you to assemble an unlimited number of components that can be combined in a single stock item, then sold or ordered as required. To use an example, a company distributing chemicals might purchase in thousands of litres, then re-package and sell in 50 litre, 5 litre and 1 litre containers. Stock levels can be managed effortlessly both for the original quantity of chemical and the supplies of containers. Kits can also be ‘exploded’ directly onto transactions, providing an instant way to input a set of product codes. They can also be used to create an unlimited number of short-cut codes and cross-references to other products. For example, a 20 character part number could be given a two or three digit short reference. When the short reference is entered, the full product code and its details appear. Kits may also be embedded within other kits and there is no limit to the number of levels of embedding you can create.

Assembly Management

Many firms involved in manufacturing, engineering and repair, often need to modify or add value to stock they already own, or perhaps assemble components into a new product, or strip or disassemble a product into its component parts. When serial, batch or engine numbers are involved, the task can be even more complex to manage. The Assembler is designed to take the hard work out of these processes. Assembly tasks can also be customer order driven.

Stock Archives

If your organisation deals with large price lists, spare parts catalogues or handles essentially the same product under different part codes, then CAPITAL's cross-referencing and computerised ‘microfiche’ features will prove essential. If your supplier has a price list data file, CAPITAL can either merge it into your existing inventory, or keep it separate from your stock file but have it readily available for searching from within stock control. Import price lists in a variety of formats (ASCII, CSV, Excel, dBASE, etc.) You can also place old or rarely needed stock in archives. Performance is not affected when printing reports or automatically generating purchase orders, etc., as huge data files are managed separately.

Add additional fields for searching & multiple fields can be searched at once.
