The Datalinx Dynamic Stock Take module enables the warehouse to stay operational, even during a stock count. Warehouse Manager enables a business with Sage X3 to run a true perpetual inventory model, allowing stock counts to take place as required, in specific locations, or as a QC check or during quiet periods, rather than on an annual basis. This allows the business to have a constant and accurate knowledge of stock status whilst ensuring minimal disruption to the business and thereby increasing efficiency.
Traditionally, stocktaking in Sage requires the entire area being counted to be frozen. This reduces operational efficiency because operators cannot pick from or receipt to that area. With Warehouse Manager Dynamic Stock Take, there is no requirement to lock the count area, leaving it operational throughout the stock take, except for the short period when the specific location is being counted.
Dynamic Stock Take also enables multi-count and recount options on the scanners, the ability to handle “discovered stock,” stock in unexpected locations, and zero counting when stock cannot be found. With multiple operators able to work on the same session and list.
The potential issue of stock levels changing very shortly before or after the items have been counted does not arise. Warehouse Manager dynamically works with the most current stock levels, so they are always accurate and there is no need to freeze the stock.
