Extreme Makeover: Ascend Inventory Edition – Final Episode

November 13, 2013 Inventory, Version Updates Mark

If you haven’t already, make sure to check out Episode 1 and Episode 2.  Today we wrap up our overview of Ascend’s new Reconcile Inventory Feature. 

What did you forget to count?

Sometimes when you do an inventory you miss a few products.  Sometimes products are gone.  Previously you had to wait to find out about them until after you reconciled and checked the Unreconciled Inventory Report.  Now they will be listed with a discrepancy of “Not Scanned” as soon as you import your scan files. 

Lists As You Want Them

After you’ve scanned everything and fixed your problem products you’re left with a list of products with quantity differences.  This is where your investigations begin.  You’ll want to narrow down the list of products to research.  Once you’ve done that you can print out the list as you see it on your screen, or you can export it to Excel and work with it from there.

Reports At Your Fingertips

It’s important to know the value of your inventory before and after you reconcile.  To find out before, go to the File menu and select “Print Inventory by Category Summary Report”.  You’ll be automatically prompted to print out the report after you click the Reconcile button.  This will give you your post-inventory value.

Reconcile = Done!

Previously after you clicked Reconcile there was more work to be done.  Now when you click Reconcile you’re done.  You have completed all the tasks to insure that you have a clean and accurate inventory.

The new Reconcile Inventory is included in Ascend Version 2.8.  It’s available now for our Release Candidate dealers.  It will be available for everyone else on December 10th, just in time for your year-end inventory.
