Stock periods are a crucial element within the comprehensive Periods feature.
Exclusive to the Inventory Management module, the stock periods section serves as the central hub for recording end-of-period counts for stock items within the site. It functions as a focal point for reviewing and reporting on stock management performance throughout the specified period.
For accurate inventory control and adaptability, stock counts are registered in Stock Period Count Sheets. These sheets are tailored for each site, providing the flexibility to design count sheets that meet the specific counting requirements of individual sites. The Stock Count element of the Periods feature ensures meticulous recording of end-of-period stock counts, contributing to effective inventory management and enhancing overall operational transparency
