The lack of traceability is

Your challenge.

Only one complete inventory list in the standard system

In the standard version of Dynamics 365 Business Central (formerly Dynamics NAV/Navision), the only option when using the inventory book sheets is to draw up an overall inventory list. However, many companies do not want employees to be authorized to make changes to this original list. In addition, even then there would be no traceability in the sense of “Who entered what and when?” in the system.

No solution through inventory orders in the chaotic warehouse management

The problem is also not solved by the inventory orders that exist without the use of the chaotic warehouse management (in Dynamics NAV: controlled putaway and picking) in the standard system.

Inventory helper ≠ Employees

In addition, it is also possible that the people who carry out the inventory are not employees and are therefore not recorded in the ERP system.

Complex consolidation of all counts

Also, when you do the work of creating individual count lists, there is no way to combine all the counts into a complete list. However, this is necessary for a periodic inventory.

Clear count lists for individual employees

Our app anaptis Physical Inventory solves the problems mentioned above. With anaptis Physical Inventory, you can perform the following tasks within a few clicks:

  • create individual count lists
  • assign responsibilities and dates
  • if necessary, also arrange recounts

It is therefore no longer necessary for employees to work in the original list.

Processing via a mobile device

The lists are transmitted to the employees and can be filled in, for example, by MDE scanner or smartphone. This puts an end to manual entry.

Practical, fast merging of the count lists

At the end the count lists are merged again. Inventory has never been so easy with Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (formerly Dynamics NAV/Navision).

Traceability, overview and documentation

Also recounts are easier to understand (When was counted? Who counted? How often was recounted?). In the last step, it is also possible to calculate a stock value difference, which expresses the missing quantity as a value. This is often of great relevance for financial accounting.
