Physical Inventory ERP Module

Outstanding customer service and optimum manufacturing planning and productivity require accurate, up-to-date inventory information. GLOVIA G2’s Physical Inventory management module provides this information through an automated process that minimizes disruptions to business operations during the inventory count process.

Flexible Cycle Counting

With the Physical Inventory Management module, you can take comprehensive, enterprise-wide inventory counts or count a fewer number of items with greater frequency. The system dynamically highlights items for cycle counts based on user-specific criteria. By counting high value and critical items more frequently, you can minimize the inventory levels of those items by improving inventory accuracy to avoid costly shortages.

A well-regimented cycle counting strategy can eliminate the need for the annual wall-to-wall stock count. GLOVIA G2’s Physical Inventory management system incorporates full capabilities for count variance reconciliation, results and impact reporting. Inventory counts and updates can be performed for either single, user-specified locations or your entire enterprise.

Closed-Loop Process

This physical inventory management system provides a full-structured, closed loop process for counting, reconciling and updating inventories. Flexible freeze options allow GLOVIA G2 to perform inventory counts without disrupting business operations, while exception reports warn of potential error conditions whenever counts conflict with existing data.

Accurate Inventory

Accurate inventory quantities are essential for effective planning and control of your production and distribution processes. The annual wall-to-wall inventory count can be a costly and time-consuming event that diverts your company’s precious resources from your main goal of creating revenue. The Physical Inventory management module helps your company manage this necessary counting and reconciliation process efficiently with minimum disruption.

Variety of Reporting Capabilities

The Physical Inventory management module provides a variety of comprehensive reports, including: a missing tags report, variances reports for interim and final counts, and financial impact reports. All of which help manage, reconcile and audit the physical inventory process. Inventory count data can be retained as long as necessary, providing the ability to audit and verify historical data.
