For growers, traders, and exporters; the Stock Locations module is ideal, says Rene. Through a direct link to your administration you have a complete overview of your stock and the associated logistical processes. The development of this module started to address the immediate needs FreshPortal users had. This focus ensures that the Stock Locations module is widely applicable, relieves practical concerns, and provides greater efficiency. In real time it shows you where your products are, in which packaging, and in what quantities. It also offers you all the options you need to stay on top of logistical processing, i.e. your order fulfillment.
The Stock Locations work for both internal and external locations. In this context, external locations can be a company with multiple physical locations such as multiple sites, farms, or facilities. This often results in different shipping moments and varying delivery times between locations. In a practical sense this module solves that by letting you, in addition to moving stock from one location to another, register and deregister your stock per location. This can be extremely useful if stock locations are further apart from one another, as various order items can be brought to a central hub before final shipping of the entire order.
Keeping track of stock moving between locations with this module has other practical applications as well. Using the module in FreshPortal, you can immediately see which stock is at which location. Right from your dashboard. This also provides you with a convenient overview of all stock and stock movements, across all locations. Order fulfillment is included, with a direct link to your administration. Everything from stock and logistics management to the printing of packing slips and stickers per location.
