Inventory Management Features


Define min and max order quantities, reorder points, seasonality, lead times, safety stock, and forecast models to calculate replenishment.

Location Management

Setup and manage multiple warehouse locations with stocking locations defined by aisle, row, rack, slot, and bin. Define location defaults for receiving, returns, shipping, and drop-shipment transactions. Prioritize pick locations by item and by the warehouse.

Sub-Items and Matrix Items

Create and manage matrix items based on size, color, and other attributes and values. Matrix items streamline item management, purchasing, and sales processes. Use matrix views to update price and description for items in the matrix item product family. Setup sub item codes by SKU to differentiate between product variations such as grade, manufacturer, or other variables.

Physical Inventory

Create movement classes and ABC rank codes to determine physical inventory frequency.

Pricing, Discounts, and Promotions

Manage complex pricing and discount policies including volume discounts and multiple discounts per item. Maintain policies for price overrides, customer pricing, and commissions.

Customer and Vendor Items

Define unlimited vendors by item with a preferred default vendor. Set a minimum frequency for deliveries and minimum or maximum order quantities by item for each vendor. Define cross-references between internal, vendor, and customer items.

Non-Stock Items

Manage non-stock items for product warranties, services, labor, or other items. Unlike stock items, non-stock item quantities are not tracked in the system. Non-stock items may be received and returned without the Inventory Management application.

Stock Conversions

Improve inventory management and warehouse operations by converting non-stock items to stocked items and vice-versa.

Role-Based Dashboards

Stay on top of your business with role-based dashboards for Sales Managers, Purchasing Managers, Shipping Clerks, and Receiving Clerks. Dashboards provide real-time, configurable insights with actionable drilldowns for sales orders, quotes, activities, employee productivity, shipments and receipts, on-time shipping ratio, order fill rates, late orders, profitability, return rate, suggested purchase orders, and other key performance indicators.


Side Panels

Distribution side panels provide users with direct access to customer, item, and order details for sales orders, shipments, invoices, purchase orders, purchase order receipts, and more.

Stock Turnover

Manage warehouse and retail operations with real-time insights into inventory turnover. Use the inventory turnover ratio inquiry to spot obsolete or slow-moving stock, adjust stock levels for fast-moving items to avoid stock-outs and rush orders, optimize warehouse stock locations, improve replenishment strategies, and benchmark turnover against industry peers.

From Our Customers

"What really made [Acumatica] more appealing to us was the fact that it’s cloud-based. We had VPN service before … but it was slow and clunky, and because this is cloud-based I can work from anywhere at any time."

"There would have been no way to have the control and flexibility we have today with customer pricing and an accurate view of our costs without Acumatica."
