Economic and physical inventory management in Uniconta
Inventory management in Uniconta is divided into both financial and physical inventory management. Physical inventory management requires that the company application functionality includes Uniconta’s Logistics Module.
Financial inventory management allows users to create, purchase and sell goods and services. The inventory items are set up in an item card, with an item number, text, and prices. The advantage of creating such an item card is that users do not need to enter the item text manually each time they send an invoice and they do not need to remember all of the various prices.
Users can view current ‘financial’ inventory holdings, while inventory movements can be seen on the transactions report. It is also possible to print sales statistics on the inventory items as well as a counting list for stocktakes.

“We need to keep an eye on 3,500 items, evaluate whether they should stay on the shelves or whether we should replace them with other products. And if we decide to bring in new products, others have to be removed. This is where the continuous overview offered by Uniconta really matters. It is very easy and fast to delete old products and create new ones.”
