Item Categories

Inventory can be grouped in a hierarchy.  Custom categories can be defined by specific attributes.

Item Attributes

Custom data attributes can be defined to apply to inventory items.  Fields such as colour size, dimensions, etc. can be added and then used for data analysis.

Different data types such as lists, integers, and text can be used.  These attributes can have conditions applied to make fields mandatory, or no longer applicable.


Item Tracking

Serial number and lot tracking are both supported.  These numbers can be manually or automatically assigned.

From a single order line entry, you can receive and ship multiple quantities with serial or lot numbers.
