SunSystems Inventory

Track inventory movements across items and warehouses.

SunSystems allows organisations to better manage inventory by enabling greater control of inventory levels without forfeiting essential customer service levels. SunSystems provides full visibility of product, intermediate, and raw material items-with complete lot and batch control.

The module includes inventory management and inventory traceability, with additional options such as costing, landed costing, cost analysis, and product profiles. It tracks inventory movements in and out of different warehouse locations, and includes multiple allocation and costing methods, as well as extensive user-defined analysis capabilities, across items and warehouses.

The Product Profiling feature allows additional characteristics to be tracked against inventory receipts and issues, even though the information is not significant enough (such as item colour) to include a separate record in the item master. SunSystems Inventory Management is fully integrated with the Financials modules, with shared Analysis Codes and powerful mapping facilities to automatically generate accounting transactions in real time. This provides an up-to-date view of the financial position driven by inventory activity.
