Predictive Ordering Updates
We’ve revolutionized our predictive ordering tool to help businesses streamline their purchasing process and order the right amount of inventory at the right time. Our updated feature generates purchase orders based on predictive sales quantity, taking into account various factors like in-stock levels, items on order, reorder levels, and sales forecasts.
Our latest update includes an even more advanced logic system for calculating order quantity. The system now factors in the last stock take, transfer ins and outs, and the quantity of items on order but yet to be delivered. We also consider the reorder level to ensure that each item is ordered with optimal inventory amounts.
With our predictive ordering tool, businesses can avoid the pitfalls of overstocking and understocking, which can negatively impact cash flow and profitability.
