How to do Inventory Transfers and Not Die in the Process

Written by

Inventory transfers are meant to facilitate product transit between branches but it can be difficult to get a full grasp of it. We feel your pain, so below you’ll see the ways in which you can get the most out of this process. But first, let’s see a brief overview of how transfers work for boxes and units alike. By the way, to learn more about how transfers work with Komet, you should check out our blog about transfers between branches efficiently.

Multi-location Transfers

The system allows the transferring of boxes in an orderly fashion from one location to another. In addition to this, the system saves and keeps track of the information and financial movements when transferring or deleting the product. It also permits the transferring of inventory in units for fresh cuts and hard goods from one location to the other.

Making the Most Out of Transfers

Customize Your Transfers

Sometimes you might want the system to keep certain data when transferring orders between different locations so make sure you use all our transfer customization options to use the PO # as the reference number, keep the original landed cost components or retain the original customer on the order.

Track Pit Stops

What do you do when inventory has to go through an intermediate branch before arriving at the final destiny? It can become a real mess trying to do multiple transfers for a single box. With the Pass Through Location option, you can transfer products from the main location to another branch with a pass-through location calculating the cube rates of the entire freight as needed.

Use Reports

You will want to know what was sent where and why. Especially when the transfers are for more than just two branches. The Inventory Transfers and Deletions Report lets you keep track of the number of products that have been transferred from one location to another, or manually deleted from Inventory Summary, allowing increased control and traceability of your on-hand inventory.
