Pending Packet Information will now be available at Head Office
Effective replenishment is the backbone of any retail business. For this, factual inventory data is mandatory. Fine tuning the retail system to achieve this is the need of the hour.
Earlier, the HO didn't have a clear visibility on what packed goods are pending at the store end until it got tagged in packet document. For instance, if store A has 10 goods and out of which 4 are packed for dispatch to store B. So store A has 6 goods in stock and 4 are pending packets. But HO is still under the impression that store A has stock above the threshold value (suppose 8) which results in ineffective replenishment planning.
But this isn’t a problem for Ginesys users anymore!
Ginesys has introduced a new field “Packet status” in the inventory management software so that head office (HO) can trace the pending packet information. “Packet Status” field is incorporated in the Ginesys inventory management software. Once a pending packet is packed at a store, the packet status is updated from “open” to “close”. The “close” packet status will be synced to the HO and he can then replenish the stock at the store accordingly.
Thus, this enhancement will help the HO in differentiating between the stock and pending packets. Even if the packed goods are not sent from the store, HO will know the actual stock.
And hence, HO can do up-to-the-minute stock replenishment which will lead to efficient inventory management.
