Getting Started with Inventory

The Inventory Module is designed to track consumable inventory items—goods and supplies that need to be in stock regularly—and to make administrators aware when stocks of a specific item are low.

Step 1

Add entries to the business list to track vendors, create inventory categories and set notifications, and define inventory packaging types so you always know the amount contained in each unit order.

Step 2

Enter inventory items by clicking Inventory List. Here you will start entering consumable inventory goods and assigning them to either a station, apparatus, or personnel. This information is then stored in theInfo tab of the consumable item.

Step 3

Click on the Use tab and then Add Use Entry to add a record for when the item was replenished. To record a subtraction to an item, click Add Use Entry and select Used (-).

Step 4

Run Inventory Reports to determine which consumable items need to be reordered for an entire station, apparatus, personnel, or vendor. Also view how many supplies have been purchased from a vendor.

To track non-consumable items, such as helmets, hoses, compressors, radios, etc., enter those items as equipment in the Maintenance Module.
