§ Item numbers

You choose the item number length – between 15 and 24 characters.  That's in addition to a 30 character item description, 20 character alphanumeric sort name, and up to a 240 character extended description.

§ Comprehensive Pricing

Five pricing levels provide schemas for different customer types.  There is special pricing categories by customer, category, location, territory, and item. You choose the pricing priorities or have DTE search for the lowest price.   

§ Associated image link

Identify and link to a standard .jpg, .gif, or .bmp image file with any item for quick reference viewing within the item master and inquiries.         (Note: This feature is available with Windows ® distributions only.)

§ Flexible cost reporting

Standard, Last, and Average costs are all maintained within the item and location.  Costs are then updated each time stock is replenished. Then you choose which of the costs to calculate as your inventory value for each Down To Earth company.

§ Multiple locations

Define more than 999 Locations for any item and 99,999 Bins per Location. Items are easily transferred from one location to another, and include in movement history.

§ Vendor/Customer item history and numbers

Unlimited Vendor and Customer part number history is maintained for each item utilized in Purchase and Sales Orders later.

§ Sales Kits and components

Groups of items sold together as single level assemblies are grouped together as Kits.  This is included for the customer sales order and exploded for warehouse picking.

§ Serial / Lot tracking

Item serial/lot tracking can be a necessity and is tightly controlled within DTE for maintenance and historical purposes.

§ Scanner input

Some operators prefer a scanner, others prefer the keyboard.  Both are acceptable and interchangeable forms of data entry.  In addition, hand held scanner options provide quick and easy physical counting and upload for processing.

§ Physical counts

Inventory counts are processed while Sales order entry continues.  Tag numbers and worksheets make counting efficient.   Or, choose to scan the items then upload the scanner file and bypass manual entry altogether.   Either method still allows a variance report for management analysis.

§ Reorder calculation and reporting

Managing an efficient inventory is the key to good business.  DTE has several Reorder reports to accomplish this -- item quantities to be ordered are based on an item/location re-order point, which vendors give you the best price, etc.

§ Inventory transactions vs Sales Order and Purchase Order

The inventory application stands alone if need be.  Sales transactions relieve stock sold and Restocks put inventory back in your warehouse.  Or if you choose, Sales are managed with the Sales Order Entry and Purchase Order receivings are a substitute for Restocks.  Either method, transactions are available as detail history.

§ Change an item ID

If a part number changes, changing the identifying code but not the item is easily accomplished for all master, history, and open orders with a single routine.

§ Extensive inquiries

Many different inquiries are available -- drill down an item to see sales or purchase orders pending, query special pricing parameters, and look up kit components in addition to any of the sales order inquiries for an item.
