Inventory is the quantity of a particular product that is available for sale. Inventory tracking can help you avoid selling products that have run out of stock or let you know when you need to order or make more of your product. MyLogiwa's inventory screen and management method help keep your business running smoothly, and this article will explain how.

Total Inventory

When you first navigate to the Inventory screen, you'll land on the Total Inventory section.

The following columns are shown by default:

  1. Warehouse

  2. Client

  3. Sku

  4. Barcode

  5. Product Name

  6. Pack Type

  7. Available Quantity

  8. Total Quantity

  9. Open Order Quantity

  10. Product Type

  11. Product Group

  12. Inventory Status

  13. Damage Reason

This view can be customized by clicking the 3 Bar menu on the right hand side of the table. You can also Search, Filter, or Refresh this list, as well as use the Add Inventory button to add more quantity to one of your products.

Total Inventory Tracking

MyLogiwa adjusts your inventory automatically based on your purchase orders and shipment orders.

  • When you receive products from your supplier, MyLogiwa increases the number of products available in your inventory

  • When you create a shipment order, MyLogiwa reserves the quantity of the product from inventory for the order. This is one reason it's important to keep inventory up-to-date in MyLogiwa.

  • When you ship a shipment order, MyLogiwa decreases the number of products from your inventory. After shipping you will see a decrease both Available Quantity and Total Quantity.

A few notes on quantity:

  • Total Quantity: The quantity you have in stock physically.

  • Available Quantity: This quantity excludes existing shipment orders that have not been shipped, allowing you to know what is and isn't available for upcoming sales.

  • Differences between Total Quantity and Available Quantity: The gap between these quantities indicates the quantity of the existing shipment orders that have not been shipped/delivered, providing you with a projection of how many upcoming shipments are expected from your shipment orders.

Inventory by Location

The Inventory by Location tab shows all of your product currently located in your warehouse(s). Whereas the Total Inventory section is a snapshot, the Inventory by Location section allows you to interact with your inventory records.

You can perform the following actions from this screen:

Just like the Total Inventory screen, you can Search, Filter, Refresh, and customize the columns shown using the 3 Bar menu.

Available to Promise

The Available to Promise (ATP) section of MyLogiwa will help you keep the minimum amount of a given product on hand so that you use your inventory efficiently. It includes information on all of your inventory's total quantity, open shipment order quantity, open purchase order quantity, current ATP, and planned ATP all in one place. You can learn much more about the ATP report from this article.
