Byte Technology not only allows you to view what is in inventory in a store, but also set pars of what should be stocked in each store. A "par" is defined as the quantity of an item that should be in stock following a restocking.
To navigate to the restock section, select the specific store under "Stores". Then click "Restock."
You will see a detailed view of the inventory in your Store.
SKU: the unique SKU number of the product
Product: the name of the product
Unites Stocked Last 7 days: number of units stocked
Last 7 Days Sales: the quantity of product sold in the last 7 days in the selected store
Last 7 Days Stockout: the quantity of product that sold out in the past 7 days
Spoilage Last 7 Days: Spoiled items in the last 7 days
Par Level: the quantity of product you wish to be in stock following a restock
In Inventory: the quantity of products currently in stock in the store; note that inventory refreshes up to every 30 minutes
Lowest Shelf Life Days: in number of days
QTY. Lowest Shelf Life: quantity with lowest shelf life
Restock QTY: number to be restocked
Space Left: the quantity of product that needs to be restocked, based on Par Level. This is calculated as Par Level - Inventory.
Status: shows if an SKU is currently active in your product library
Reports on restocks are easy to download - simply click the "Export" button (pictured below) - this automatically downloads data into a ".csv" spreadsheet format. At Byte, we typically use either Google Spreadsheets or Microsoft Excel to view and analyze the numbers.
Once downloaded, you will see that the data is organized according to SKU number and Product Name first, followed by 22 categories of data, such as Cost of Food, Year to Date Retail Sales, Retail Sales in the last 7 days / 30 days, Units Stocked, Shelf Life and so on.
How to set Par Levels
To set the par levels in a given store, select "Par Set", select the product, then select the pencil to edit. Enter the Par Level quantity for the products you wish to be stocked. Click "Save."
