I suggest you ...

Stock & Warehouse management + sales commission

1) different stock can enter the item list with expire date
2) add shipping status
3) sales commission features upon payment received.
4) sales profile and commission rate linked to different items
5) search of the items should be enhanced.
6) add item category + sub-category

Hi there,

We now have a Zoho Inventory Add on option for Zoho Books. You can take a look at that. You can achieve a lot of these features using Zoho Inventory.

https://www.zoho.com/in/books/help/items/advanced-inventory.html

Regarding your requirements,

1- You can use the backtracking option to achieve this in Zoho Inventory. https://www.zoho.com/in/inventory/kb/sales-order/so-back-order.html

2- We have default shipping status based on the carrier in Zoho Inventory
You can refer this link – https://www.zoho.com/in/inventory/help/sales-orders/shipments.html

3- You can use the custom function feature to calculate the sales commission.

4- sales profile and commission rate linked to different items – We currently do not have this option

5 – search of the items should be enhanced – For queries on this you can send us an email at support@zohobooks.com

6- We are working on item category in Zoho Inventory and will definitely update you.

If you have any further questions you can write to support@zohobooks.com

    Please work for commission calculation on each order.
    3. You can use the custom function feature to calculate the sales commission - how can we do this. Please give instruction.

    Why is there not an easy way to calculate Sales reps commission based on payments received ?

    Thank you

    how can i prepare/manage stok of replacements..just like warranty items like LED bulbs etc.

  • Nik Vorfi commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    At least ZOHO should add inventory as part of ZoHo books so we can have all the functionality of the zoho inventory but under one tab instead of switching between different tabs!

  • Nik Vorfi commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    adding item category + sub-category would be very useful to start with!!!!

  • Rishi commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Don't they already have SKU field already? isn't that the same as a serial number?

  • Ahmed Younes commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    i was really going to register and i surprised how come there is not serial number for items or a code ?

  • Ahmed Younes commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    i think i could start using it officially in my company if listen to these points , please

  • rajeev commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    the best inventory system i know is inflow inventory.

    if possible can your team create something like that.
    sorry to say this, Most of companies really dont like your inventory system.

    Include the "Item Code" feature as well.
    Search and Item selection fields should accept Item code, Middle Name and Last Name.
    Transfer items from one warehouse/store to another.

    I also believe linking items to suppliers is essential, so you can have a proper tracking of what is purchased from where. Multiple suppliers per product sku, with different pricing listings. Example: supplier A you purchase the item for X cost, and supplier B for this cost.

  • Michael Curl commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I would like to add to this idea:
    Item pricing tiers based on customer groups (which would require the addition of customer groups). Otherwise, yeah, inventory management features like found in SOS Inventory or Quickbooks (desktop, not online)

    It would be a much added benefit to have a computable sales person commission that ties into the invoice. Perhaps a separate module to manage sales staff and commission rates.
