Canias ERP Module

Inventory Management

The caniasERP Inventory Management (INV) module enables companies to manage their material stocks on the basis of many dimensions such as date, quantity, value, location, lot number, status.

With this module, which supports the entire supply chain from sales, purchasing, service, maintenance, production and quality-assurance, inventory movements are performed, warehouse stocks are recorded and the past and current stock status can be examined in detail.

Movement Types

All the inventory movements can be managed through the check tables in the Inventory Management module. Check tables can be configured based on demand with an unlimited number of options. Thus, companies can keep detailed information about each initiated inventory movement and follow developments easily.

Batch And Serial Numbers

With the batch and serial number tracking feature in the module, material movements can be tracked without any issues. This feature allows for trouble-free operation in processes where regular monitoring and traceability are important, such as maintenance and service-related processes or sectors with food, pharmaceuticals, and equipment.

Transparent Evaluation

Comprehensive assessments can be done in this module to highlight important information. By using search criteria, instant, up-to-date data about warehouse stocks or warehouse movements can be monitored and categorized according to individual requirements. Additionally, classification can be made by applying ABC-D analysis according to materials, inventory turnover speed and values.

Flexible Storage And Mobile Use

The inventory management module can be used to track current inventories and stock types such as available stock, blocked stock, quality stock, reserved stock, revised stock, consignment stock, provided material stock, customer order stock can be tailored to the needs. With Warehouse Management module integration, collection/placement/ transfer operations, barcode inventory receipt/issue/counting operations and container/pallet operations can be easily performed by using mobile data input devices (MDE) or barcode readers.


Records of processes such as sales delivery order, production order and transfer order, which cause the issuance of materials from inventory, are kept in the module. Simultaneous requests from different locations for the same process are prevented. In addition, different processing demands of the same product can be avoided by reservation management. Available and reserved stocks can be tracked and organized instantly.

Batch Detail

Viewing detailed stock information is very important in terms of determining batch strategies. With the Inventory Management module, the concept of batch policies and party details can be created in material receipt/issue/ transfer operations related to sales, purchase and production processes. In addition, the batch detail concepts can be generated based on the demand; the detailed information required on the based on the batch can be followed and the inquiry can be made according to this information. In this way, companies can review and organize all past and current records.

Container / Pallet Use

The Container Tracking System provides easier storage of the products in the logistics processes of the enterprises, and the loading and unloading processes are realized more practically. All processes related to the containers which can be produced according to the needs, can be sold, whose batch sizes can be defined, serial numbers can be defined, and maintenance processes can be followed, can be carried out with the Inventory Management module.
