Inventory Control is very important.  But, in order to make sense of your inventory, you have to classify it properly.  This way, you can run off useful inventory reports.

Voyager Department ManagementVoyager lets you categorize every single product you put into your system.  You can assign it to a:

  • Department
  • Category
  • Sub-Category
  • Vendor
  • Season
  • Product Line

These groupings will allow you to pinpoint information without going through massive amounts of data. 

Promotions, pricing groups, merchandising reports, customer purchasing habits, physical counts, and product searching can all be broken down by these groupings.

Another nice Inventory Control feature built into Voyager is the Sizing Matrix.  This matrix allows you to setup three key elements of a product, such as color, size, and width.

Voyager Inventory Matrix

This matrix is not limited though; each style/product can have its own matrix.  For instance, if you are selling parts, you could make a matrix of color, size, and inseam, instead of color size and width.  The matrix attributes are user-definable.

Each cell in the matrix will track cost and price information, on hand and on order information, as well as tax information and inventory information, such as inventory movement, supplier codes, and barcodes.

You can also run reports based on these matrixes.  You would be able to track which sizes, colors, and widths are selling and which are not.  This information will help you purchase the right things.
