Problems and challenges that warehouse managers face today can be very diverse, as is Odoo Inventory module. This maybe one of the most powerful Odoo modules reflects the high role of smart & efficient stock management in the modern enterprise system.
Not only you can run your stock operations significantly faster, if you switch to Odoo from other ERP. But also, if you have used an older Odoo version before and decided to migrate to its newer form, you will get many additional features and improvements of existing ones consequently.
Most often companies that contact us want to improve their performance in one or several parts of their business - for example, to speed up lead times in their warehouse or production. They might be also interested in increasing efficiency of other operations like sales, logistics and procurement.
Coming back to Warehouse, another important goal is ensuring traceability of stock in the warehouse and in the production chain, so that picking employees can work efficiently and can track all products moves - from their input into the Warehouse until shipment as final product.
Third objective is enabling safe storage of product stock and regular inventory of valuable goods.
Additionally to these higher-ranked goals, a warehouse manager needs to complete a bunch of daily tasks. These can be:
With Odoo you can be sure that your stock management is fully integrated in the production process and is aligned with your company’s long-term goals.
This was made possible through the connection of Inventory application with other modules like Manufacturing, Purchase, Accounting and Sales. The data exchange between them takes place automatically, so that there is no need for extensive manual data exports or data reconciliation anymore.
With automation of the recurring operations like stock replenishment your warehouse managers can be relieved of redundant work, getting more time for other important tasks.
Through its connection with Purchase, Sales and Manufacturing modules, Odoo Inventory will automatically trigger new requests for quotations and purchase orders, as well as make to orders based on minimum stock or new sales orders.
All reports and forecasts regarding company’s stock are fully automatic and customisable too and once you started using it, you will love it.
Additionally to standard warehouse solutions, Odoo addresses efficiently many specific client situations like drop shipping, multi-warehouse or cross-docking. With some customisation companies can get full use of it in a short time.
Bringing specific logic and rules into the warehouse & inventory management helps to tackle non-trivial clients issues and needs.
Due to original open source character of Odoo, new modules appear almost every day. This means that companies can save money for programming using ready solutions which are modern and cheap.
One of such up-to-date solutions is Bar Scanners module which can accelerate your storage and picking operations given the highest levels of accuracy.
This is why we recommend Odoo not only for smaller companies and startups, but also to the medium and bigger enterprises with complex production and storage systems.
