Stock management and inventory control - requirements and rules
There may be confusion about how the stock and add-on module Stock Management in Reviso works. This is because the Reviso stock handling is not as flexible as one might think. We therefore need to act in conformity with the flow of the Reviso stock module. Here's a description of the different requirements and rules concerning stock in Reviso:
If you use the Stock Management module in Reviso you can get two-way storage synchronization via IEX
In the stock module in Reviso IEX will activate two-way stock synchronization, so that the stock balance for each product is sent back to the shop.
If you use the stock module in Reviso, the basic rule will be that Reviso is the stock-central.
Commit to stock in Reviso via an Inventory Adjustment (import / export)
Note here: IEX cannot make adjustments at the warehouse in Reviso for you. This is currently not supported by the Reviso API, and it happens via the stock adjustment in Reviso instead.
Adjustment of the inventory happens through an inventory adjustment in Reviso (import / export) - read more here
The stock in Reviso consists of a cost price, number etc. to be imported within the inventory adjustment.
It is also possible to send the stock back on all products by creating an import / export item no. + product name. This means you export a file from your Reviso with item no. + products name and import it again. This will send stock on all products from imports.
NOTE: Inventory adjustment should be made only when IEX have submitted your inventory synchronization, otherwise the stock balance will not be transferred.
A stock movement will occur when an order is created in Reviso. This can be done either by a shop order processed by IEX integration or an order created in Reviso.
Note: If the order is upgraded to 'Current invoice' through the integration, the item will be put back in the inventory. This IEX unfortunately can not change because the flow is dictated by Reviso. If you upgrade the order to an in-progress invoice via Reviso, it will keep the stock. In this case automatic bookkeeping can be helpful, since once an order is bookkept a stock movement will occur.
Reviso supports the sending of location from the shop into the accounting system. But Reviso does not support two-way locations from Reviso to shop.
