Enhance stockroom workflow
Even the best stock software and workflows can be undermined by poor stockroom organisation. That’s why we’ve designed our stock control system around the daily workflows of stockrooms, from arrival and check-in of new parts, to building picking lists and engineer collection. With the mobile Stockroom App, stockroom managers have a comprehensive solution to manage the flow of stock through their business, without lugging a laptop around.
Manage your stock locations
No matter how your business handles stock, you can set Commusoft up to reflect that. You can create and manage multiple stock locations, whether it’s a small stockroom, a warehouse, or an engineer’s van. Each location will show you real-time stock levels and how many parts are available, reserved against jobs, or scheduled to be returned. With this data, your office staff can oversee stock levels and engineers can make more informed decisions when requesting parts.
Reduce excess stock
Stockpiling is a symptom of inefficient stock control and can put a significant burden on your business’s resources and cash flow. Instead of utilising existing stock, staff often raise new purchase orders with suppliers when they need parts. With Commusoft’s stock system, you know what’s in stock whenever parts are requested, ensuring engineers use available parts first. You can even set automatic reorder levels to keep certain parts readily in stock in a controlled and manageable way.
Create automatic reorder lists
Keeping important parts in stock and readily available can ensure your business stays responsive, especially for parts that you use regularly. By creating reorder lists for each stock location, you can customise exactly which parts are kept in stock – and to what quantity. When available stock for a specific part reaches the minimum level, a purchase order is automatically raised to order more. With reordering functionality, you’re less likely to run out of key parts and stock when you need them most.

Streamline stock returns
Poor stock control drains money out of your business through unreturned, damaged, and lost stock. When parts go unused it’s easy to forget to return them to the supplier. Instead, they end up in the corner of the stockroom or left rattling around in a van, many ending up misplaced or broken. With effective stock control, unused parts can easily be tracked, marked for return, and included in your stockroom’s workflow, giving your team the tools to reduce stock wastage.
Improve customer service
By combining job management software and stock control in one system, you’re able to offer your customers a better overall service. You’ll automatically receive a notification if a supplier delivery hasn’t arrived within a set time frame before a scheduled job. This allows you to let your customer know in advance, so you don’t disappoint on the day. Additionally, when booking in jobs, you can quickly check whether the parts are in stock and assign them for that customer’s work.
To enhance your business’s stockroom workflow, the stock manager can utilise the dedicated Commusoft Stockroom app, available for both iOS and Android. This offers a compact and convenient way of seeing what is due in and due out, checking-in arrived parts, and building picking lists to prepare for engineer collection. With the built-in barcode scanner, you can simply scan an item’s barcode and quickly mark it as available in the system.
