1 What is the Inventory?
Inventory does not include nonstock products or services as they do not hold stock.
2 What is the Product Catalog?
The Product Catalog is a list of all items and services your business offers. This is different than the Inventory because not all of items in this list need to carry stock.
3 Where can stock for an item be found?
Stock levels can be viewed at a glance in the Inventory list, and you can get a detailed breakdown of how stock was moved in the Inventory Card under the "Warehouse Report."
4 Some items in the product list have M+, B, or A on the left, what does this identify?
M+ indicates a product with Matrix Variations, B indicates a Bundle Product, and A indicates an Assembly Product.
5 What field(s) are mandatory when creating a new product?
While the Product Group is the only required field, a unique Code will be generated upon product creation.
6 What information is on the Inventory Card, but not the Product Card?
All of the below information can be found on the Inventory Card. To quickly access the Inventory Card from the Product Card, select "Inventory" on the "Product Catalog/Inventory" switch on the top.
7 What is the difference between Product Groups and Product Categories?
Both Groups and Categories are a way of organizing Products, but Product Groups are the organization format that are shown in the Point of Sale.
8 What data can be imported from Excel/a spreadsheet into ERPLY?
The import tool in ERPLY is a great way to add new products, customers, and suppliers in bulk. It can also be used to mass update products all at once.
9 When using the import tool to update product information, what is the best practice?
Exporting a new spreadsheet ensures that you are only importing new data. If you choose to use an old import spreadsheet, some of the information may be dated or products no longer offered may be reinstated by mistake.
