CarVue, the cloud-based garage management system, has been enhanced with new stock management capability.
CarVue enables garage staff to setup ‘products’ which could then be sold to customers, by picking them to be added to quotations and invoices.
Now products can be marked as stock items, allowing a stock level to be inputted too. This stock level then reduces as the item is sold. The existing product capability already handled unit, cost and selling price data.
“Almost all garages keep stocks, the most important often being engine oil,” said Rob Skidmore, CarVue’s product director. “But this can be used for any other consumables, or even hard parts where larger garages choose to hold popular items.”
CarVue say this latest development was one of the most frequently asked for improvements and claims delivering it illustrates its "user-community orientated" approach to system development.
Because CarVue is cloud-based, all users can immediately use the new stock functionality without needing to upgrade their subscriptions, or run any software updates.
“The stock management capability creates history records too so that it’s easier to understand how valuable stocks like engine oils are really being used within the business."
