Inventory Management for Magento

Inventory Management for Magento

SkuVault facilitates inventory management for eCommerce retailers using Magento. SkuVault's user interface was designed to be as simple, intuitive, and to-the-point as possible, to keep warehouse workers on task and to keep human error to a minimum. Full barcoding helps prevent human error by allowing users to simply scan a barcode to pick, pack, and ship faster and with higher accuracy - no more manual entry. Think of SkuVault as the bridge between the inventory in your warehouse and your online Magento store. With our inventory management solution for Magento, you can check on your inventory at any time from your mobile device, tablet, or computer, because SkuVault is web-based on Microsoft's cloud. SkuVault integrates with both Magento & Magento 2.0 to pull your Magento products and map fields such as SKU, name, description, weight, price, image URLs, manufacturer, and more, into SkuVault.

Quantity syncing between SkuVault and Magento

Quantity syncing between SkuVault and Magento

Any time an available quantity is changed, that quantity is automatically updated on your Magento site to prevent oversells and undersells. This quantity syncing between our inventory management solution and Magento is one of our favorite features, because out of stocks can be so dangerous for your eCommerce business; unhappy customers, negative feedback, lower rankings, and lost sales, just to name a few reasons why we hate oversells and undersells. So, quantity syncing: pretty amazing. Several things can happen to affect the available quantity and prompt an update: The actual on-hand quantity changes due to an inventory add or remove transaction. Returns, employee sales, wholesale orders, and the dreaded physical counts are a few reasons your inventory could change not due to online orders. Another action that affects available quantity is, of course, when Magento orders come in. As soon as the sale comes into Magento, SkuVault categorizes the associated quantity as "pending". To calculate your total available quantity, we take: (on-hand quantity) - (pending quantity) - (any holds you have set in SkuVault, like exchanges or daily deals) = available quantity. This available quantity is what we update to Magento and any other channels you have that we integrate with such as eBay, etc.

Order syncing and advanced reporting

If your sole online store is your Magento store (meaning, no eBay/Amazon/Etsy/etc. stores, and no other eCommerce website), then SkuVault's Magento inventory management integration is also set up to grab orders. If you aren't solely selling on your Magento store, we connect to your shipping software, such as ShipWorks orShipStation, and use the shipping integration to grab your orders; we find that shipping software acts as a more complete hub for sales coming from every marketplace you sell on. Why is it important for SkuVault to grab orders? Because it helps the inventory integration to calculate your true available quantity for each SKU, and it opens up the advanced sales reports. This also allows SkuVault to provide a pick list, which is something you'll want, because our pick lists take your picker around your warehouse in order by location, which saves steps, time, and money. If you're suspicious of how your pickers or any of your warehouse workers are spending their steps or time, and therefore your money, SkuVault provides reports on user history, which acts as a built-in tracker that holds users accountable. These reports can be useful to compare productivity between employees and identify who may need some extra training, or to give incentive pay to those who're most productive. Quality control is another feature people love that allows the user, at your packing station, to scan the order ID off the pick list or packing slip which enables SkuVault to pull up a list, with photos, of what ought to be contained in that order. Then each item is scanned against the order in quality control; SkuVault alerts users if they scan an incorrect item, too many items, or not enough of an item. There's also full history reporting on quality control as well, so you can easily trace back any mis-ships.
