Reduce costs and increase efficiency? Let’s start with inventory

Reduce costs and increase efficiency? Let’s start with inventory 

by Sonia Zarino - Marketing & Communication Manager

Certain activities within a company are seen as a given and are not considered much in terms of efficiency and “profitability”. In particular, stock is often only seen from the perspective of their economic and financial burden, without any detailed analysis of the way space, operational logistics and stores personnel are organised. The efficiency and “productivity” of a company are achieved at times in large part by its correct structuring and organisation.

Optimising stock management means in particular:

  • Minimising stock, at the same time maximising customer satisfaction, reducing to a minimum the time between an order for a product and delivery and implementing the just-in-time principle in distribution.
  • Taking into account how the various market contexts influence stock management of industrial companies, wholesale enterprises, retail traders and service providers, and identifying the advantageous solutions in each individual case.
  • Determining the necessary stock levels so as to achieve the most advantageous purchasing/production conditions, reducing stock to a minimum and being in a position to face any eventuality.
  • Implementing a storage system for materials, components and finished products which minimises the costs of moving the goods and facilitates the physical management of the stock. is capable of fully satisfying these and other inventory management needs thanks to its multiple functionalities in the logistical area: Inventory, Lots and Serials, Inventory Locations. In particular, the Inventory Module offers all the tools required for an efficient movement of goods and related operations. The graphic navigation allows you to view all the key data concerning an item, speeding up analyses of quantities available, even in various stores, price lists, outstanding orders and so forth.

The module offers in-depth reports, which can be fully customised to meet individual needs, allows a constant monitoring of the stores and, therefore, of the active and passive cycles of the company. This aspect is particularly important because having up-to-date information is a prerequisite for making correct decisions within limited timeframes and thus achieving a real competitive advantage in the market.

For more information on managing this programme visit our site at under the Products area where you will find complete information on the functionalities available. Those who are already using the modules in the logistics area can also take advantage of online courses which are free for current MLU subscribers and use quick and easy methods to provide you with detailed knowledge of the programme, allowing you to achieve maximum productivity for your company.

Microarea Community talk: delivery date per item in supplier’s quotation

Microarea Community talk: delivery date per item in supplier’s quotation

by Sonia Zarino –  Marketing & Communication Manager

Active for almost two months, Microarea Community is proving to be a virtual rendezvous, popular with users and partners where they can exchange information and suggestions of any kind which, as in the case below, translate into product improvements and actively contribute to their technical and commercial development.

It all started with an observation by a final user who pointed out that in the electronics sector, the suppliers, not wishing to tie up goods (and therefore capital) in storage with the possible risk of not selling the products, often purchase materials only after having received an order from a customer.

Frequently electronic items must be imported and have delivery times of various lengths. Our user noted that in most cases each individual item has a different delivery date to the other items, although these are all part of the same order.

The proposal put forward by our sharp user was that it should be possible to insert the date of delivery of each single item in the “Supplier Quotation” screen. The idea being that when a quotation is received, it would be possible to save the delivery date of each item, generating a “self-updating” Excel spreadsheet thanks to Magic Documents, where all the information on the delivery dates proposed could be merged.

Microarea saw value in our user’s suggestion and launched a process known as Product Improvement to implement this new functionality, which will be released in a future version.

The topic proposed in this posting gave rise to various comments and another user, having observed that the problem experienced in the electronic field is also common in the mechanical sector, has suggested including the further possibility of linking the quoted price with the delivery date.

The collaborative process of shared analysis and development of our product is already bearing fruit and we are certain that the Community will be a valuable tool in this sense, continuously contributing new points of view to the future designs of our product, improving performance and accessibility on the basis of the real needs of the users.

Maybe not everybody knows that… Some features of the Mago.Net Inventory Adjustments procedure

2 April 2009 by szarino


by Giuseppina Sperico –  ERP Logistics Team Manager

The Inventory Adjustment procedure allows to update the inventory quantities recorded with the quantities actually present in the stores. It is a functionality very useful to have always up-to-date our inventory and satisfy all demands.

It is probably common knowledge that offers an Inventory Adjustment procedure which updates the inventory quantities recorded with the quantities actually present in the stores.
But maybe not everybody knows that, in order to meet the needs of more complex companies managing several stock items, the same procedure can be applied, establishing the quantities at a certain date, examining individual stores and saving the process.

The lines extracted are numbered progressively so as to allow each user to isolate a certain number of items and continue working on them even over several days.
Printouts are also available in order to verify the inventory situation before recording an adjustment, during the operation itself or at completion of the operation, so as to ensure control of the previous and current quantities and values.

See the video-demo

For details on the functioning of this useful tool, contact your usual dealer and, in addition, if you are a MLU/MSU subscriber, go to our site (reserved area) and follow the course  NON EXISTING – Inventory Adjustment Entries
