Edit Arena - the Place Where You Can Manage Anything
Hey Inventoro users 💙 ,
We have something special for you today and it’s is a pretty big announcement. Last month we worked on the Edit Arena and launched it in the app. So what is the Edit Arena?
The Edit Arena is a new part of Inventoro, where you can manage pretty much any product attribute inside of Inventoro. Things like MOQ, specific lead times, and packaging can now be set per SKU (see the complete list below). You can even set product predecessors or take out products from everyday recommendations altogether.
Where you can find Edit arena? In Strategy Settings > Edit arena. Or just click here.
The Edit Arena is a tool designed for advanced inventory management. You can change parameters on any SKU or do bulk changes on groups of products. We have prepared some pretty advanced filters for you to set your product groups anyhow you need. By warehouse, by supplier, brand, collection, or much more.
There are so many use cases for this:
- 💪 Exclude drop shipping products from order proposals
- 💪 Adjust order proposals to specific cubic meters to fit containers or other spaces
- 💪 Set expiration dates for fresh and super fresh products
- 💪 Set predecessors for new products, which replace older models
- 💪 And we could continue like this for the rest of the day. The possibilities are endless.
And now finally. Here is the full list of settings you can do on any SKU or a group of SKUs defined by your filter.
- You can edit suppliers or even create new ones and select which part of the portfolio you would like to purchase from them.
- You can set different Minimum order quantities per SKU.
- You can set different Packing per SKU and Inventoro will automatically round purchase order proposal to this specific number. For example, you are ordering wine from a wine producer and they are enabling you to order just multiple six because in packing you have to have 6 bottles of wine.
- The “Order” attribute represents if you would like to let Inventoro propose you optimum quantity to purchase or not. Anyway if you would like to stop ordering just set Order to No.
- Attribute Visible represents your choice for total excluding these items from Inventoro. They won’t be a part of lists, reports, forecasts, purchase order proposals and so on.
- Is your case that you would like to hold at least 1 piece for the item you are buying from one supplier? This is sometimes a part of the deal if you would like to achieve a better price. So you can easily set the Minimum inventory to 1. Inventoro will keep an eye on this and will look after that you have at least 1 piece no matter what.
- Expirations in days are perfect for companies who have to deal with short expirations. For example dairy, grocery, pharma, brewery, etc. A good example is a simple yogurt where expiration dates are in just a few days. Inventoro will optimize inventory to cover just this specific expiration date and will eliminate write-offs because of expiration.
- We have prepared specific settings for the Purchase order period and lead time for SKUs. For example, the lead time for the whole supplier could be 40 days but for a specific part of their portfolio the lead time will be 80 days.
- You can set weight in kilograms and volume in m3 per SKU. This is a preparation for our new feature where Inventoro can create a purchase order with automatic utilization of for example one 20” feet container, 40” or even 40” high cube container.
- Last but not least is support for predecessors. Imagine that you’ve just added completely new products to your portfolio. With zero sales data, zero information. If you link these new products to current (existing) items, Inventoro will automatically utilize sales history from these predecessors and be able to create consistent forecasts from day 1.
How to work with the available filters?
We have prepared a bunch of different filter you can use for choosing the right part of your portfolio.
Direct pick from a list:
Fulltext in product name, sales category, supplier etc.:
If you want to change for example Minimum order quantity for all SKUs in the filter you can use the input in the first row as below
And then confirm the change to all selected SKUs.
Have a great day!
