Receiving goods at the back door can be a time consuming and error-prone task. The biggest risk is that a failure to check third party direct deliveries can lead to stock shortages and financial loss.
M-Netics Receiving Module permits receiving at carton, box, cage or rail level, with validation against expected delivery data from the supplier or distribution centre. Item level checks can be performed to ensure stock levels are maintained accurately and any shortages and damages are accounted for.
The application can also flag items which are out of stock in the store, so that replenishment can be prioritised, maximising available options on the sales floor.
Real time data synchronisation to the back end ensures that store stock is updated as the goods become available to the store, rather than as the stock is shipped by the DC or supplier. Analysis of this data can help you determine how long a product was out of stock before actually being replenished, identifying and defining lost sales opportunities.
