Manage items, billing, barcode scanning, stocks and supply chain with an open-source, fully customizable ERP.
In the supermarket business, accurate billing and inventory information are essential as many items are perishable with limited shelf lives.
If you don't have enough stock of fast-selling items, you'll lose sales, and vice versa. Proper management of inventory and stocks is crucial to ensure that items aren't be over-ordered or overstocked.
ERPNext uses item groups to classify items based on types. For example, you can assign a computer to the item group "Computers & Desktops". This comes in handy for analyzing the profit-loss report, sales register, and purchase register to see what types of items are most profitable.
An Item Price is a record in which you can log the selling and buying rate of an item. Setup prices of your products as per different price lists. Moreover, these price lists can have different currencies too! To have Item Price fetching in the sales or purchase transaction, you only need to select the 'Price List' and item price will be fetched automatically.
Supermarkets have to manage thousands of product permutations in different colors, finishes, shapes and lengths. In ERPNext, the primary item is stored as an item template, and each of the variations is stored as an item variant.
No need to plug in third-party barcode scanners. With ERPNext, you can start scanning product barcodes via your device camera. This not only makes item searches easier, but also shows your items' hierarchy to help you make more data-driven business decisions. Even better, there's no need to spend money on external scanners.
Without a serial number, an electrical product or appliance is incomplete. With ERPNext's serialized inventory, you can manage serial numbers and automate their creation based on your predefined series. You can also get a real-time view of stock at various locations, ongoing transfers, pending receipts, and delivered products. Scan items using either item barcode or serial number.
Move or split batches between different warehouses. If you produce food in batches, the Batch master will come in handy to track manufacturing dates, expiration dates, and more details. You can even quickly automate batch creation with one-click configurations.
ERPNext makes discounts simple. With promotional schemes, you can manage item discounts (based on rate or set prices) for different retail parties or branches. Promotional schemes will automatically change the applicable pricing rules.
Register new company branches with a few clicks and start transacting right away! You can configure dimensions for each branch and analyze your expenses, stock movements, profits and loss to assess your overall profitability. You can also see store-wise profit/loss and income statements easily with ERPNext's accounting module.
As a supermarket, it's important to maintain a POS counter for billing transactions. ERPNext's open source Point of Sale software is user friendly, extremely flexible, and fully integrated with inventory for real-time stock control. It works seamlessly so that you can provide the perfect experience to your customers.
With ERPNext's Print Format Builder, you can customize the look and feel of your invoices effortlessly. Apply your brand logos, include images or terms and conditions, add your company address, and so on. Once you set it up and save as the default, you'll never have to worry about it again!
In ERPNext, you can create POS invoices even when you're not connected to the internet. Invoices created offline will be saved locally in the browser. You can even keep creating an invoice if you lose internet midway. Once an internet connection is available, all offline invoices will be synced and pushed to your ERPNext account.
Multiple people may operate your POS at the retail counter through the day. Cashier Closing Vouchers let cashiers record the sales and details at the end of their shift. Then an accountant or manager can collect and tally cash to quickly update the company ledgers.
Avoid last-minute stock transactions with a real-time view of inventory. With the Stock Summary report, you can not just view the quantities of stock present at your warehouses, but also move or split them with a simple button click! Get a glimpse into warehouse depletion and adjust inventory levels on the fly. A stock transfer entry will be auto-created in the backend. It's that simple.
Check stock levels of each branch effortlessly. The Quick Stock Balance tool can be used to retrieve an item's current stock quantity and value — in the specified warehouse, on the specified date. The tool can also be used for stock-taking (stock audits) to match how much actual stock is in stores and how much is logged in the system.
It's important to ensure that your supermarket's food is fresh. With the Batch Expiration report, you can analyze the expiration status of your products, based on their warehouse location. This report also gives the real-time updates for perishable items so you can sell or re-order them at the right time.
To prevent stockouts, track an item's reorder level. When the stock level goes below the reorder level, ERPNext will automatically create a material request. This helps you replenish inventory at exactly the right time and reduce chances of stock exhaustion.
This report gives you recommendations about item reorders. You just need to store lead time and safety stock in the Item master. Then, ERPNext will use product transactions to calculate how much of each product you should reorder.
Stay away from legal trouble with quality checks at each food touchpoint. Ensure perfect quality with built-in, customizable Quality Inspection Templates. Until inspection is complete, ERPNext won't allow receipt or delivery of new food. This ensures that you won't compromise on the quality of the food that's being distributed to your customers.
Manage your customers better in no time. It just takes a few minutes to set up loyalty programs and special pricing schemes. You can then maintain credit limits, view receivables and total billing, and analyze average customer revenue to make informed business decisions.
