Manage your stocks in several warehouses and across all your sales outlets. Automatically assign each order to one inventory. Create different stock levels for each store view.
Advanced Inventory is an extension for Magento that allows you to manage stocks of different points of sale or warehouses through Magento's backend.
Each order placed through your website can be automatically or manually assigned to a specific stock. Then you can follow in real time the stock level for each point of sale, the orders' assignations and anticipate if re-stocking is needed.
With Advanced Inventory, any kind of scenario is possible. The module is easily configurable thanks to several setting options that correspond to the great majority of inventory management real situation.
Advanced Inventory is composed of a suite of performing tools for a multi-stock management:
Assignation rules allow you to define priorities for store views.
Imagine we have 3 store views (Great Britain, France and Germany) and 4 warehouses/points of sale (London, Paris, Strasbourg in the East of France and Berlin). These warehouses or points of sale are all represented here by orange flags.
We would like the warehouse of London to deliver to Great Britain, the one in Paris to France and the one in Berlin to Germany. We would like the warehouse of Strasbourg to deliver border regions, in other words Alsace (in France) and Bade Wurtemberg (in Germany).
In that case, we can define that for an order placed in Freiburg, the items will be sent from the warehouse of Strasbourg which is far closer than the one located in Berlin, and that even if the order is placed from the German store view.
From now, we defined that the warehouse of Strasbourg was visible for all groups of customers that are on the French and German store views (in the Store views selection and Customer groups selection tab).
Advanced Inventory allows us to be more specific in our configuration and so to define regions, geographical areas by using zip codes.
In our case, we would like the regions of Alsace and Bade-Wurtemberg to be delivered from the warehouse of Strasbourg, so we only need to define an assignation rule for the warehouse of Strasbourg: FR(67,68),DE(7*),which means to take into account all French zip codes starting with 67 and 68, as well as all German zip codes starting with 7.
For that, go to Catalog > Manage Stores and choose the store of Strasbourg. In the Order/Inventory assignation Rules tab, you can define our own assignation rule. (If that tab doesn't appear, it probably means you didn't configure your preferences to be able to use assignation rules, to know more go to STEP 4: Manage your preferences.
We could also have defined a rule so that the warehouse of Paris delivers to all France except to Alsace and so that the warehouse of Berlin delivers to all Germany except to Bade-Wurtemberg.
We should have written FR-(67,68) for the warehouse of Paris and DE-(7*) for Berlin's one.
Advanced Inventory is an extension for Magento that can really be adapted to any kind of situation. For example, we can also define assignation rules according to customers groups. If we have a store view dedicated to retailers and another one to wholesalers, then we could have specified that such warehouse was for such customers' group.
