How does the purchase suggestion work?

The purchase suggestion is a tool that facilitates your stock control! This feature uses the sales record of the last 60 days, combined with the minimum and maximum stock limits configured for each product, thus calculating a suggestion of the necessary replacement quantity for each item. In this way, it is possible to keep the stock within the configured minimum and maximum, facilitating control and preventing missing or overstocked items.

Shall we learn how to generate a purchase suggestion?

1. On the Stock menu, access the CURRENT STOCK tab.

2. Click on the ARROW icon.

3. Click on TOOLS and then on PURCHASE SUGGESTION.

The system will automatically generate a list of purchase suggestions. The PURCHASE SUGGESTION column will show the minimum and maximum quantity suggested for purchase.

4. If you want to filter the information, showing products from a single supplier, click on BY SUPPLIER, then on the ARROW to the right of the field to choose the supplier.

5. Click on the DISC icon in the upper right corner to EXPORT the list.

6. Click on the PRINTER icon in the upper right corner to PRINT the list.

Done! You now have a report with purchase suggestions for your inventory, based on the minimum and maximum inventory settings for the products.
