You can define a reorder quantity (Reorder Point field) for your inventory items, allowing you to quickly see which items need to be purchased.
You can prevent an item from being added to the Reorder Reminders by flagging it as unorderable on the item record. This is handy for removing seasonal merchandise from the reminders list.
You can also run Reorder and Build Point reports.
Items at or below their reorder point are listed on the inventory Reorder Reminders window. Point of Sale takes into consideration any quantities already on order before adding an item to the reorder reminders list.
A company preference setting specifies the value used to determine when an item is added to your reorder reminders:
- On-hand quantity: With this option, Point of Sale adds an item to the reorder reminders when the combined on-hand and already on-order quantities is at or below the reorder point.
- Available quantity: With this option, Point of Sale adds an item to the reorder reminders when the combined on-hand and already on-order quantities, minus the quantity committed on active customer orders, is at or below the reorder point.
Point of Sale can suggest POs to reorder the items on the Reorder Reminders list.
For assembly items, the reorder point indicates that quantity at which you want to build more of the assembly item.
You can specify reorder points for the company (all stores combined) and for individual stores. The Reorder Reminders shows reminders for the company and each individual store as well.
