Inventory Management

Every business, whether small or large, manufacturer or reseller, has to manage inventory for several purposes. Inventory management is about staying on top of your supply chain, reducing wastage and generating more profits. With Giddh, you can track your inventory with minimal effort.

You will find options for Inventory, Job Work and Manufacturing under Inventory Management.


 Inventory

Ideally, you should assign stock items to a group. This would help you organize and track them properly. You can create stocks beyond the constraint of a group, but you should be careful while doing so. 


Search

Enter the name of a stock or a group and press enter. The filtered results are displayed on the page. Click on the Context Menu available next to the search box to get the records in CSV or XLS format. The records can be filtered group-wise, stock-wise and account-wise.  


Download

You can get the reports emailed to you in various ways. One of the ways is to click on the Context Menu (three vertical dots next to Search Box) and then choose from the options. From there, you can get reports group-wise, stock-wise and account-wise.

The other way is by clicking on the download button given at the top right corner of the grid. This will send you the required reports in the requested format (either CSV or XLS, as chosen by you) to your registered email address.


Create Stock

Stock can be anything that you store or maintain with for your organization. It can be laptops, chargers, water bottles, vehicles, gadgets, or anything else. To add stock to the accounting information, do the following:

  1. On the Inventory page, click on the Create New button.
  2. From the options, select Create Stock.
  3. An entry form with the following details appear on the screen:
