  • Customer and Volume Pricing. Assign different prices for different types of customers. You can also assign different prices for wholesale, retail or online sales.
  • Multi-location Inventory Management. Manage inventory in multiple locations. As you enter purchase and sales transactions, JMAS provides the capabilities to choose the warehouse location that will receive or fulfill the order. Inventory reports allow you to view information about your total inventory on hand, or just the inventory level at a specific location.
  • Matrix Items. Handle various combinations of the same item, enabling different values for characteristics such as pricing, inventory status, and description. JMAS gives your customers and sales representatives the ability to identify item combinations more quickly. As a result, you can meet the varying demands of your customer base more easily.
  • Multiple Units of Measure. Manage multiple units of measure for selling, buying, and costing each item across various sales channels, including your Web site, retail stores, partner or wholesale channels. Additionally, you can more closely track inventory costs and increase profitability.
  • Lot Numbers. A complete history for each lot number is maintained in the inventory management program through the product's life cycle. You can also assign an expiration date to each lot number and enter notes about it. Lot items track the specific cost for each lot as products are bought and sold and lot numbers must be entered when building or receiving a lot into inventory, and when fulfilling orders for a lot item. You can even set up a warning to let you know when an item you're fulfilling is about to expire. And JMAS’ sophisticated transaction search functionality makes it simple to view the entire history of a lot as it moves through your system and to customers, making recall warnings extremely easy to handle.
