Normally, there is 1 inventory for every product, even if a business keeps multiple warehouses that store identical products. This can become an issue for businesses when customers place single orders for products that are kept in different warehouses. Therefore, the Multi-Warehouse Inventory functionality allows businesses to create multiple inventories for products stored in several warehouses. Users can create rules for selecting appropriate warehouses for purchased products based on priority, country, category, product type, and more. The functionality is extremely flexible and it allows customers to order products from a single warehouse or multiple warehouses at one time.
Multi-Warehouse Inventory Management Tool
If your business has multiple warehouses, then we’re sure a few issues have popped up. One issue that frequently presents itself is inventory management. Let’s say your website says that your business has 30 of a particular product in stock. A customer visits your website and decides to order all 30. Unfortunately, your website fails to know that 15 of the product are in one warehouse and 15 are in a different warehouse--but there is only 1 order placed. How is it possible to fill this order appropriately? It can be done, but there are issues here that don’t have to exist.
