More Detail

De Facto® Stock Control Software allows configuration of unlimited warehouses to encompass:  

  • Storage

    for standard warehouse requirements including the ability to handle storage charges  

  • Bonded

De Facto warehousing uses a hierarchy that allows the definition of multiple sites, which can then be divided into multiple warehouses, each with multiple zones within which are multiple locations. Product can be permitted within any warehouse or can be restricted to allow control over permissible locations. When a product is 'registered' in a warehouse it may have minimum and maximum quantities or days of stock specified, which can then be used in auto replenishment calculations for purchasing or re-stocking.

The location codes are assigned in a structured manner, based upon up to six dimensions or elements. Additional options are available to handle automated carousel based pickers.
