Serial Number Tracking
Stay accountable and provide high quality service for high value products with the confidence provided by serial number tracking.
- Track and trace an individual product as it moves through the order process – from manufacture to sale.
- Produce more reliable reports, easily manage returns, recalls and warnings, and reduce administrative strain through sales and audit tracking.
To simplify the management of supply and demand, Tall Emu allows for effective production planning.
- Capture all costs and manufacturing inputs required for assembling a finished product.
- Ensure customers are always satisfied by easily planning for future production.
- Reduce wastage by automatically calculating current assembly capacity based on stock on hand and eliminating time-consuming, manual calculations.
Bill of Materials (BOMs)
Boost manufacturing efficiency and easily manage your production processes by creating, editing and updating your Bills of Material.
- Centralise your production information by creating recipes that outline your key manufacturing processes – input products, output products, resources and steps.
- Edit BOMs to flexibly manage stock outs and changes to input product pricing.
- Use BOMs to manage multiple output products generated in a single production process.
Inbound Landed Cost Calculations
- Purchases can be ‘received’ into stock-on-hand count and sold, then ‘finished’ on receipt of ‘actual’ vendor invoice. Tall Emu will calculate an estimate Cost of Goods sold on receipt of stock for profit reporting, and automatically journal the adjusted profit calculation when the purchase cost is finalised.
- Link separate Expense Orders (duty, freight) directly to a Purchase Order to effect ‘cost of goods’
Manufactured Items and Bundles
Manufactured items and bundles provide methods to ‘bundle’ combinations of stock tracked/non-tracked Stock to sell as one product.
- Static Kitting or ‘manufacturing on the fly’ does not allow ad hoc changes to kit content when selling or quoting
- ‘Kitting wizard’ that allows you to select from a range of products, limiting the choices your staff can make in selecting contents for the kit
- Great for use in the IT industry – especially for system building – but suitable for any industry
- Tall Emu CRM can automatically calculate Kit selling prices.
- Kit contents can be set/changed to ‘show or hide’ on quotes or invoices
Sometimes you need to sell the same base product under different codes or names (for example – a tire that fits on 3 different cars).
- Virtual Products let you define unlimited ‘Virtual’ product codes which tie back to a real item
- The virtual product has its own pricing, description, even images which can appear on quotes and invoices
- This can be used to make it easier for staff to quote items that are suitable for a product with limited training, or to charge higher prices for the same item where it works with a premium product.
- Virtual products draw their stock levels from the underlying “real” products so you always have accurate stock holding information.
Serial Number Tracking
Tall Emu includes fully featured serial number tracking in its warehouse management features
- For Quality Control, vendor return or recall purposes, you can choose to trace serial numbers of specific (depleting) stock
- You can elect to record individual product serial numbers on Purchase (inward receipt), on Sale (outward), or not at all
Custom and Multiple Price levels
- Create multiple “price levels’ depending on who you are selling to. Example: Wholesale, Retail, Trade, Not for Profit, Direct).
- Centrally manage the selling price using rules that have been set up
“Volume Based” Price Breaks
- You can define custom price breaks depending on volumes sold and this can be unlimited.
- Let Tall Emu calculate the correct volume break price x number of units being sold (Example: if selling > 5 units, mark-up could drops from 40% to 35%)
Bespoke Customer Pricing
- Negotiated or ‘contract’ pricing on specific product for a specific customer can also be defined, without having to change the customer out of their normal Price Level Group
- Tall Emu ensures only these products, at specific prices, are sold at the negotiated rate
- These pricing contracts can have automatic start and end dates, or they can have be no ended.
Work orders let you define the production processes that should be triggered when a product is sold by the sales team. Streamlining your data entry and information sync, work orders:
- Outline production requirements using inputs defined by you.
- Act as a source of truth for your production team during the early stages of order fulfilment.
- Include company resources in combination with production steps to ensure efficient production planning.
