inventory between stores has never been easier. You start with a
list of items to transfer. The list can come from an accumulation of
all items received on previous orders or you can easily create your
own list, for example: All items from a particular department or
vendor. To balance inventory between stores you can also
specify items at any location that are below current minimum
quantify levels. Additional items can be added to the list by
just entering the stock number, scanning a barcode, or searching by
Once you have a list
of items to transfer, The Retail Solution displays current
quantity-on-hand for each item at each location. Color-coding
is used to help you focus on locations that may need a quantity
adjustment. A light yellow background shows quantity-on-hand
is within ten percent of the current minimum level. A light
red background shows quantity-on-hand is below current minimum
level. A light green highlight on the stock number and
description shows the current item you are changing. As you
move the highlighter to a different item and/or location, detailed
information including a sales history graph is displayed on the
bottom of the screen.
The [+] and [-] key
can be used to increase or decrease the quantity at any location. In
the above sample screen the The Dalles Center location is in need of
some Talking Bart Simpson dolls. We would just move the highlighter to
that item (3) and corresponding location code (TDC) on the screen. The
current quantity available is 16. As shown on the bottom of
the sample screen, the minimum quantity for that location is 17.
To transfer 2 items, we could press the [+] key twice, type "2"
and then press the [+] key, or just type in a new quantity of "18" and
let The Retail Solution automatically compute the transfer quantity.
After the change, the quantity from the original location would also
be reduced by the transfer amount. The cell for this location
and the TDC location would also have a red dot in the upper right
corner showing that a quantity change has been made. You can easily
print, save (to work on later) or post your transfers for shipment.
