Booking in Direct Item inventory in to the inventory management software system
Direct items are never physically handled but to allow them to be matched to a sales order the inventory management software provides for the creation of notional stock.
- Select Direct Items from the booking in drop down menu. This will open a booking in form that looks identical to the Multiple Items booking in form.
- There is no automatic population of data into the direct Items form and all the information has to be entered manually. Use the drop down menus to select Category and Sub Category and then enter model, manufacturer and other specifications as required.
When using the Direct Items form there are some details that cannot be entered: PO Number, Supplier, PO Date, Batch Code, Reorder Level, Stock Level and Adjust Stock.
The quantity is retained at a default level of 99999 and cannot be altered.
- When you are happy that all the details have been entered click Add to Stock. The item will appear in the Stock record marked as DIRECT.
