Automatic Inventory Control
 

Cabinet Pro defines an Assembly as a group of hardware items sold or used as a unit.  A Sub-Assembly hardware item is a hardware item that is part of the Assembly itself.  For example, the taillight of a car may be considered an "assembly", and is sold or used as a unit.  However, that same taillight consists of gaskets, screws, light bulbs, reflectors, etc., all of which are considered "sub-assemblies" and must be accounted for at the manufacturer level.

bullet

Panels, Lumber, Hardware, and Accessories automatically deducted from Inventory.

bullet

Supports Hardware Assemblies and sub-Assemblies.

bullet

Hardware items that consist of other hardware parts may have the parent hardware (the Assembly) priced out while the constituent hardware (sub-assemblies) are deducted from inventory.

bullet

Selected Assemblies as well as their sub-assemblies may be stored in Inventory, or just the sub-assemblies, or just the Assembly itself..

bullet

Inventory In-Stock reports

bullet

Inventory Re-Order Report

bullet

Re-Order points per Inventory Item

bullet

Report of Miscellaneous items to ship separately from cabinets.

bullet

Location information on Inventory Items

bullet

Percentage or fixed quantity of items to over-ship.  For example, if the job calls for 230 screws, then the program may be set up to automatically ship an additional 4 screws to make it 234.

I Just wanted to drop you a note to say how much I appreciate your software.

 

I finally set up my edgebanding and laminate. Wow! What a difference! I used to give away edgebanding as part of my overhead. Now that I have taken the time to set up the edgebanding and laminate report and link it to the bid section, it has paid off big time.

 

My bids have become very accurate. I know exactly what it will cost to build each job. I account for each screw, shelf pin, bumper, edgebanding and the like. There is no guess work anymore on bids.  And because I know exactly what my material cost are my bids can be lean without losing any money. Cabinet Pro has helped me stay in business during these challenging economic times. Thank you for your software and your great support!
