Gain control over your inventory with Service Proz’s Inventory Management feature.
Knowing your inventory usage trends and your most commonly used inventory items
helps your business to operate more efficiently, profitably, and smoothly. The Service
Proz Inventory Alert Module advises you when your inventory has reached a minimum
threshold, signaling your reorder point. If a work order is not fulfilled because
of an inventory stock-out, then the work order is placed in a “Back Order” status
until the required inventory is received and made available.
With the Service Proz Inventory Management feature, you can track inventory levels
at multiple locations, including warehouses and vehicles. Tracking your distributed
inventory alongside associating your field technicians with specific supply/replenishment
locations provides you with increased control and visibility. The Service Proz Inventory
Management feature lets you know where your inventory is throughout the entire network
and who has access to the stock.
Automated Re-Order Points
By defining re-order points for your inventory, you ensure that your inventory network
never falls below the defined minimum stock levels. Once the current inventory stock
level reaches this threshold, the Service Proz Purchase Order feature automatically
generates a purchase order for the selected supplier. Once the order is fulfilled
and received, Service Proz automatically receives the inventory, updates the stock
levels, and identifies any current work orders that are placed in “Back Order” status
and releases the inventory so the work orders can be completed.
Improve Customer Satisfaction
Not only proper inventory management make your business more efficient, but it improves
customer satisfaction by having the right parts available when are where they are
needed. This means that you visit more customers per day and reduce the length of
time the customer waits to be visited. Ultimately, this makes your customers happier
and more confident about your services.
If your inventory data is held within an external system, you can import this data,
via a pre-defined and populated Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, directly into the Service
Proz Inventory Management tables. There is no data to key; the process is straightforward
and automatic, and the data import occurs as frequently as you require.
Quick Books Interface
If your inventory data is held within QuickBooks then you can synchronize this data
with the Service Proz Inventory Management feature ensuring that your inventory
data is accurately reflected in both products.
