Departments And Sub-Departments
Departments are the highest level of inventory. Sub-departments are nestled within departments and items are nestled within sub-departments. This hierarchy provides an excellent tool for finding, reporting and listing items. Subdepartments contain the default margins and tax information for a price zone. - margins by zone.Full Margin Control
Quasar's extensive margin control starts with setting target margins by sub-department and the ability to report on which items are not meeting your target margins. In the item master screen, margin percentages are calculated for you, if you enter a price, and if you enter a margin percentage, the price will be calculated for you. - pricing by zone in item master.Container Deposits
Many products are shipped with container deposits. For example, bottle deposits, can deposits and pallet deposits. In Quasar you can define if the container deposit is included in the cost of each item or billed separately on the vendor invoice. You can also define if the container deposit is included in your selling price or if it is to be added separately to the customer invoice.Create Kits
With Quasar you can build kits or packages out of existing items. For example, you can build a fishing tackle kit out of various lures, spoons, line and reels. Another example would be manufacturing something from numerous components. When you build a kit the inventory of the individual items are reduced and the inventory of the kit is increased automatically.Physical Counts
Multiple counts can be recorded. Items counted in more than one location and/or on more than one count sheet are automatically added together by Quasar. Prior to processing your counts you can view all of the discrepancies between your physical count and your systems on hand quantities. You can review the count detail of any item. And, you can report on all items that should have been counted but were not. When counts are processed an inventory adjustment is automatically created for discrepancies.Multiple Case Sizes
Quasar handles items with multiple case sizes. As you do not always sell items in the same case sizes as they are purchased you can define which case sizes are purchased and which are sold. Of course you can assign the correct cost and price to each size.Multiple Lookup Numbers
An individual item may have multiple lookup numbers. For example, your assigned number, your vendor's number(s), UPC codes and various other price lookups (PLU's).Stock Locations
Quasar's stock locations provide an excellent addition to Quasar's inventory management capabilities. Define the "Section", "Fixture" and "Bin" where your products are located. Your stock status report will now display the location where your items can be found. Items can be listed by location and you can run reports by location.Multiple Vendors Per Item
It is recognized that you may have multiple vendors for a single item and that each vendor may sell an item in different case sizes and at different costs. In Quasar you can define specific vendor numbers, case sizes and costs for each of your vendors.Sales History
Access to accurate sales history is very important to proper inventory management. The Quasar sales history screen provides the ability to view your history by month, week or day. You can view the sales history for an individual case size or for all sizes that the item is sold by. For purchasing purposes you can view your sales in either the selling case size or in the purchasing case size. If opened from a purchase order, the sales history screen displays the history of each item as you enter them on the order.Barcode Labels And Signs
Design your own barcode shelf labels, shelf talkers and signs and print them using the new Quasar labels screen.Item Adjustments
An item adjustment screen provides the ability to change the on hand quantity and/or on hand value of an item(s). All adjustments post to the ledger accounts. Inventory can not be adjusted without an audit trail.Active And Stocked Status
Define the state of your inventory. Only active and stocked items appear on inventory lists and lookups by default. This provides the ability for a large inventory database while minimizing the size of lists and reports.Powerful Reporting
View the stock status of any item at any time. View the sales history of an item by month, week or day. By date range you can view:
- An items sales, purchases and adjustment activities in both summary and detail.
- All transactions containing a specific item or group of items.
- All sales of a specific item or group of items.
- All purchases of a specific item or group of items.
In all of the above cases you can drill down and view the actual transactions. You can report on items purchased by specific customers and you can report on items sold to you by specific vendors. You can very quickly find any transaction with a specific item on it.
