Question

Inventory packaging software for business

Hello,

My business is need of a software. Does not have to be incredibly complex. Something simple, user friendly.

This software will ONLY be used to keep track of our inventory(any purchase order building, or accounting is not needed)

The most important thing to know is that all of our packaging will consist of multiple items in one package

for example;

Single ciggarete- (this item consists of 1 cigarette paper, 1 cigarette plastic tube, 1 sticker seal for tube)

Single Pen- (this item consists of 1 pen, 1 cardboard box for pen, 1 gold sticker for pen)


All I would like is a software where I can click on this one item, and it would deduct the following items that are a part of this final produced item.


Thank you so much!!

Re: software

Seems as something that must be written for you. Find a programmer and go for it.

But let me remark the software must do more than just allow clicking on an item. It must be able to:
- define products
- define items
- define the composition of products (how many of what items)
- preferably report on the stock level of items so you know what to order
- select the product the click applies to
- add new stock of items (otherwise the count would start with 0 and become more negative with each click)

And maybe, if you make 100 of the same products, you prefer to fill a field with "100" and then do one click in stead of doing 100 clicks. Just an idea, although your explicitely state you don't like it, since it's not in "all you like".

I'd suggest a spreadsheet with a little bit of programming to make a nice dedicated user interface.

Dear Vlad0311,

Based on my understanding, you need to have a software that is able to see the item assembly structure or the other word, It is a Bill of Materials.

You can flag an item as a "kit" where you can assemble and disassemble the kit for separated items.
