Article #319 Multi-warehouse (aka Multi-Location) Inventory Control

Multi-location Inventory Control is part of the Enterprise Feature set of Solid Route Accounting™ - Cloud Edition which allows inventory tracking across multiple fixed and/or mobile sites.

ERP Configuration

In order for this feature to work optimally you will need to make the following configuration changes in your accounting system:

  1. Create an inventory site for the main warehouse
  2. Optionally, create an inventory site for any alternate supply warehouses
  3. Create an inventory site for each mobile warehouse
  4. Optionally, one or more damaged returns warehouse

Note for QuickBooks® Users:
This feature requires QuickBooks® Enterprise with Advanced Inventory.

Solid Route Accounting™ Configuration

In Solid Route Accounting™ navigate to the Mobiles screen and assign each mobile the following various warehouses:

  1. Default Warehouse: this is the mobile warehouses for the selected mobile record.
  2. Good Return Warehouse: when products are returned in good condition, this generally means that the item can be resold; they are assigned to this warehouse. Generally this is the same as the Default Warehouse.
  3. Damaged Return Warehouse: when products are returned in damaged or expired condition, they will be returned to this warehouse.
  4. Order Supply Warehouse: when creating Orders on the mobile it generally means that the salesperson does not have sufficient stock on hand to fulfil a customer's order and will need to have the order fulfilled by the Main/Supply Warehouse.

    Warehouse Selection
