How does it work?
After intalling the Kinetic Inventory Management (KIM) software on your server, you are presented with a new menu item in the left-hand column simply titled 'Inventory'. From this menu, you have instant access to all inventory management functions available in one place, such as searching for item information, editing inventory data, creating and viewing purchase orders, checking in purchase orders received from vendors, managing back-orders, and seeing real-time sales information at the individual item level. All of this data is managed in real-time as products are ordered through the osCommerce shopping cart. Inventory quantities are always up-to-date, and you can see at a glance what items are selling best and how many of each item needs to be ordered.
The best way to optimize inventory is to know exactly what you're selling and to buy only enough to cover sales until you receive your next supply. There is a fine line between having too much inventory or too little, but achieving this balance point will help you maximize your profitability". -- PH
