Guide to the mobile stores application.
Contains entry points to the software’s main features including:
- Item Enquiry
- Item Issue
- Item Return
- Link Part to Item
- Batch Stocktake
- Ad-Hoc Stocktake
- Debtors Issue
Each one of these items adds functionality for employees to save time and improve accuracy on site.
Item Enquiry allows users to look up items via their StockSiteNo. Users can initially Scan a barcode to receive this number or type it in manually. After a number has been entered they can move up and down numbers using the prev & next buttons.
The screen displays the following information:
- On Hand
Depending on current settings the Bin number is editable from this screen.
Each item is allowed 5 images, these are enterable on the Item Enquiry screen and are saved via the Save button. You can use the Issue Item, Return Item and Link Part to Item buttons to move to each of those pages carrying the current StockItemNo you have entered with you.
The Item Issue page allows items to be issued as well as providing costing for these items.
You can enter the number of items to be issued, may be able to choose an employee for each item to be issued to. And then enter the costing information: Work Order, Expense, Cost Centre, Company, Division and Site.
The page also allows scanning for StockItemNo and WorkOrder.
Effectively Identical to Item Issue but allows the return rather than issue of items.
Link Part to Item
Allows the linking of a part with an Item by entering the StockItemNo and a partNo.
Allows the stock take of items. First you enter a stock take number and hit search. This will bring up all items with this stock take number. You can then click on each of these items in order to open their detail page where you can perhaps edit their bin as well as updating their stock take qty.
Allows the stock take of items but you access directly with their stock item number rather than entering from a list. This also allows the creating of new items to be stocktaked that don’t currently have stock take numbers.
Allows for the search of order Items and the entry of received items. After entering an order number and your free reference text you can choose an order item and save how many you have received. Depending on your settings you may also be able to enter carrier and consignment here as well as have labels printed.
Works like Item issue but with a list to choose from debtors to cost the item too.
