Better Stock Control
Receive invoices of stock purchased easily into the system. Unipos point of sale software keeps track of sales by deducting sales quantities by itself, to automatically balance all stock levels.
Model Stock Order
Improved productivity through quick efficient processes. “Automatic” recommended order, which is based on rate of sales over a pre-defined period set by the user, suggests a stock order that can be placed by the business owner. This calculation is done automatically as set per supplier. Optimization of stock levels results in improved cash flow.
More than 1 barcode per item is allowed without needing to change the item stock code or item itself. Adding multiple barcodes to an item eases out general problems that occur when a supplier changes a barcode. These problems usually are duplicate items, old stock items not scanning anymore and any impact on reporting history of a specific item.
Unipos facilitates a 3-step stock take system. Through the integrated filter system in the stock take module, it allows for extremely effective checking of stock take variance. This allows for partial stock counts any time of day as well as full department counts or store counts. This can be done live with a tablet connected wireless to the store, a portable PDT scanner or with manual count lists.
No need for separate listing where different pack sizes of the same product are sold. This allows for consolidated sales history per stock item.
More than 900 different reports within the stock list allows for “drill down” searches to produce very detailed results.
The End-of-Period summary is your business operations “health check” at a glance. This can be viewed daily, month to date, monthly, year to date and yearly. Comparisons can be made to previous periods for performance measurement purposes.
