Product Types (Serialized, Quantity, and Bulk)
It is useful to know the different types of items a company can own, particularly in order to ensure an optimal management of inventory.
With Alice POS, there are three types of products :
- Products in Bulk : These items are sold in large quantities, or according to no set quantity value (ie. by weight).
Having this type of product in inventory is useful for businesses selling products in great quantity daily. Whether by weight, measure, or another pre-defined quantity, with the ability to manage bulk products, it is easy to access the goods you keep in large quantities and replenish your inventory with these. If you sell products by weight for example, this product type becomes interesting, as you can sell its exact quantity.
- Products in Quantity : Each item is classified by a UPC code.
Products set as quantity do not have a unique number for each item in inventory. This product type is used for generalized products, which don’t necessarily need each item to be tracked. These goods are often held in greater quantity in stock and do not have identifiers differentiating one from another like serialized products do.
- Serialized Products : These are items which have a unique inventory number. We use this product type when you would need to track goods on an item per item basis.
Alice POS allows you to categorize, manage, and track all product types in your inventory. The software significantly simplifies management’s task of following changes in inventory with the classification of these three product types.
Manage Product Disassembly
It can happen that you receive items in package form, and would rather sell them individually. For example, a convenience store always receives sodas in 24 packs and then sells these by unit.
Alice POS offers a simplified solution for product disassembly. Once you have created the parent and the child products required, only scan the product package and our point of sale system will use the settings you have configured automatically for this package in the future.
Invoice Management (Sales, Purchases, Rent, Repairs, Refunds, and Consignments)
If you want to manage multiple types of transactions, it is usually necessary to have more than one software to follow the numerous transactions. Managing multiple software can certainly become costly to maintain long-term.
With Alice POS, you can manage all of these transactions in one place. In a single platform, you can manage sales, purchases, rent, repairs, refunds, orders, and consignment.
