Kladana allows you to manage your inventory count:
- Make purchases, shipments, and transfer products between warehouses;
- Keep records of product variants with different characteristics (size, color, etc.);
- Manage sales of products tracked by serial numbers;
- Monitor product stock level and manage inventory count in several warehouses at once and in different bins of a warehouse;
- Create internal orders when the stock level gets critically low.
Products and services are collected in the product catalog. Every product or service has its own card. In the card all the necessary product or service information is indicated:
- Product variants with their characteristics (size, colors, etc.);
- Packaging info;
- Serial number;
You can also create bundles of products or services and sell them as a whole.

If you want to view the actual product stock level at the warehouse, the reorder point of a product, the quantity of products available for sale, go to the Inventory → Stock. You can sort the data by products or by warehouses.
You can add the initial stock level of a product manually with Stock Adjustment or import it from Excel. When importing, Stock Adjustment is created automatically. The stock level is replenished or decreased with Receivings, Shipments, Write-offs, Purchase Returns, Sales Returns, Stock Adjustments, and Production Orders (when production process is finished).
Set the Reorder point of a product to control the quantity of product units at the warehouse. If the stock gets lower the Reorder Point, you receive a notification. Then you can order more products from a supplier or transfer products to the warehouse from the other warehouse.

Receivings and Shipments
Receivings and Shipments are the inventory management key tools.
When you create a Receiving, the product stock is replenished and the product cost is calculated. A product purchase from a particular supplier is recorded in the Receiving. The Receiving, in its turn, can be the basis for Outgoing Payments or Purchase Return to the supplier.
When you create a Shipment, the product stock is reduced, since the transaction reflects the actual product disposal from the specified warehouse.

Inventory Count highlights discrepancies between estimated and actual inventory. Update the actual stock level and correct it in the system with Write-offs and Stock Adjustments. You should create a separate operation for each warehouse. Inventory count is carried out for each warehouse separately.
Be aware that Inventory Count does not change the amount of items in stock.
