Inventory System

  • 1.  Inventory System

    We are looking for a system to help us track truck and warehouse inventory.  From the dispatch side we are using Service Titan and it does not have an inventory component.  We need to find a better way to know what we have and drive restock orders on our service trucks.  We would be looking for a system that is scaleable and  would grow as we grow.  Any suggestions?

    If you're using ServiceTitan, are you using Quickbooks, too? With Pro, Premier, or Enterprise versions, you can enable functionality for inventory that can be integrated with your ServiceTitan usage. You can designate your parts in ST as inventory or non-inventory. That being said, Enterprise is the only version with Advanced Inventory functionality, and that's what you need if you want each truck to have its own inventory location(s).

    From QB help:

    Advanced Inventory is a set of 4 separate features that you turn on and set up individually. You can use any or all of them, depending on the needs of your business.

    Click each link to learn how to turn on and set up each feature:

    • Multiple Inventory Locations. Track inventory at different sites (warehouses), bin locations (rows, shelves, or bins), or both.

    • Serial/Lot Numbers. Track inventory with serial or lot numbers.

    • FIFO. Use first in, first out inventory valuation instead of average cost.

    • Barcode scanning. Use barcodes to make data entry faster and easier.
