Usually, the stores purchase an item of the same model in bulks, and place them in their inventory. So, at this point tracking these items both in the warehouse and on the POS becomes important. For each serial of an item, you can keep track of:
- When you purchased it?
- Who you got it from?
- Purchase order number it came in on
- Who you sold it to?
- Invoice number
- Date of sale
- How much you paid for it?
- How much you sold it for?
To understand whether or not you need to serialize the item,
let’s take an example. Say, you have bought ten (10) “iPhone 6” smartphones of
different variations in color.
- Go for Serialized Item if you want to
individually manage and track each of the iPhone 6 smartphones. In this case,
RepairDesk will assign a unique serial to each of the 10 smartphones. Remember,
serials are different from SKUs.
- Go for Non-serialized Item if you do not want to individually manage and track 10 smartphones. In this case, RepairDesk will not assign any serials to these 10 “iPhone 6”.
