ACCTivate! Inventory & Warehouse Management Software for QuickBooks & Intacct

Organized warehouses provide the foundation for quality and efficiency in an environment that is often fast-paced and chaotic. Strategic inventory storage decisions, enabled by a warehouse system with the flexibility to accommodate numerous inventory statuses, locations and types of ownership, give companies a distinct competitive advantage. Utilize tools to produce shelf and bin labels, and introduce barcoding and wireless warehouse devices, and the resulting well-organized warehouses will be a strategic operations center for the business.

Sounds great, but that's only for big business, right? Not any more.

ACCTivate! enables small and mid-sized businesses to organize warehouse operations with these flexible, strategic capabilities including Warehouse organization, Consignment & VMI inventory, Location management and Labeling.

ACCTivate! allows for inventory to be configured and organized across multiple, actual or virtual warehouses. A warehouse can be a different physical location, logical division of inventory or a financial segmentation such as:

A powerhouse for warehouse management, ACCTivate! enables:

  • Geographic
    Warehouses defined by physical, geographic locations
    Ex: New York ~ Los Angeles ~ Seattle

  • Category
    Warehouses defined by category or inventory type
    Ex: Dry Goods ~ Freezer ~ Liquids ~ Hazardous material

  • Location
    Warehouses defined for inventory accountability control
    Ex: Warehouse ~ Truck 1 ~ Truck 2

  • Ownership
    Warehouses defined by product ownership
    Ex: Company-owned ~ Consigned inventory from vendor ~ Consigned inventory to customer

Consignment & Vendor managed inventory

ACCTivate!'s inventory management features provide companies the ability to utilize advanced supply chain strategies such as consigned inventory and vendor managed inventory.

  • Vendor consigned inventory
    Inventory on consignment in your warehouse or warehouses that are still owned by the supplier

  • Inventory consigned to customers
    Inventory owned by your company that is shipped to or consigned to your customer or distributor and stored in their warehouse, warehouses or locations.

    Typically, consignment inventory is shipped and stored at a warehouse, multiple warehouses or other types of agreed-upon locations (service & repair trucks, stores, etc.). The inventory is held at that location and the inventory is purchased when it is used or sold, or on a pre-determined schedule (monthly, quarterly).

  • Vendor managed inventory (VMI)
    Vendor managed inventory occurs when inventory is managed by the supplier on behalf of the receiving organization, based on pre-determined minimum and maximum inventory levels. Vendor managed inventory can lower inventory levels for both the supplier and the receiving organization, provide suppliers better insight into anticipated demand, reduce lead times, and improve customer satisfaction.

Vendor managed inventory or consigned inventory can be implemented with the same inventory and warehouse procedures as other inventory types, can be included or excluded from warehouse cycle counts, and can be managed with transparency to the end customer.

Location management within the warehouse – and beyond

Track inventory quantities in any location that is a step below the warehouse – aisle, rack, shelf or bin location, on trucks or other company-defined areas.

Location management enables:

  • Organized inventory count sheets
    Inventory count sheets display the locations and zones where a product is stocked. Locations can be identified by zone.

  • Inventory location transfers
    Bin to bin, bin to truck, warehouse to warehouse, etc.

  • Receiving of inventory to a specific location
    Receive products into inventory specifying the warehouse and the specific location within the warehouse

  • Ability to sell from specific locations
    Specify the inventory location to sell from when entering an order (service technician's truck, warehouse nearest customer, etc.)

  • Primary location defaults
    Set a primary inventory location for a product that will be the default warehouse location for every transaction. Set a stock level as well, to keep track of primary location inventory requirements.

  • Adding locations on the fly
    Set up all warehouse locations at one time or add a new warehouse location when needed

Efficient inventory and warehouse transaction management

Keeping inventory accurate and updated is simplified with ACCTivate!'s user-friendly interface. Inventory movement, adjustments and status changes are captured and managed through use of transactions found in the ACCTivate! Inventory menu. Warehouse transactions are handled in an efficient, one-screen process.
  • Receiving: Records inventory received into a warehouse or location, with or without a purchase order,
    without disclosing products and expected quantities (Blind Receiving) or with the Receive all function, which populates the receipt with all outstanding items, allowing for quantities to be changed as needed.

  • Transfers: Records the transfer of inventory to a new location within a warehouse, from a
    warehouse to another location, such as a delivery truck, or between warehouses within a company.

  • Breakage or shortage adjustment transactions: Allows for the manual reduction of
    inventory to correct inventory levels in the event of inventory breakage, shortage or loss.

  • Financial or balance adjustment transactions: Inventory is adjusted for accounting
    purposes such as changing the stated value of inventory for a particular product. Changes will be reflected on the general ledger as a gain or loss on inventory.

  • Non-sales use or issue of product: Provides a means to record non-sales issues of
    inventory users, such as in the event of donations or marketing.

  • Physical count: Products to be counted will be "frozen" until the count is completed at which
    time a variance report will be generated and the inventory on hand quantity adjusted to reflect the count.

  • Customer returns: Returns are efficiently managed through the Return Merchandise
    Authorization (RMA) process which allows tracking of the returned inventory and related information by referencing the RMA number generated by ACCTivate!. There are several methods for handling the return transaction depending on if the product will be returned to inventory or if the product is discarded.

  • Vendor returns: Vendor returns of inventory are handled by issuing a return request which,
    when approved, will automatically create a vendor credit and reduce inventory.

  • Sales: Processing of a sales order automatically creates warehouse transactions for picking.

Using barcodes in your business is easier than you might think

Replacing pens and paper with bar codes and scanners reduces costs, improves operations and is available to businesses of all size. ACCTivate! barcoding is easy to implement, easy to use and delivers a quick return on investment.

Barcodes are simply a type of font that a scanner can "read" and understand as a letter, number or symbol. However, when a barcode is tied to an inventory control system like ACCTivate!, the full power of a barcode system can be seen. A barcoded product ID number can be scanned to handle warehouse transactions such as:
