In a multiple warehouse environment, the Inter Warehouse Documentation produces requisitions and/or inter-warehouse transfer documents to fully control movement and costs of stock between warehouses.
There is also the option of using an ‘In Transit’ warehouse.
Requisitions also have last modified dates and revision numbers.
Stock items can be scanned using Barcodes.
Inter Warehouse Transfers can also be linked to Job Costing. This can be useful for controlling Work In Progress.
Communications (see SF013) can also be linked to inter-warehouse transfer documents. This is useful for tracking the status of an internal request between the source and destination warehouses or to head office for an indication of stock statuses and ETAs. The buyer can then optionally use inter warehouse documents as a request for a quote from their supplier and use the communication switch to track the status of these requests as well.
