Current SCM has launched a very exciting new feature that will provide even greater flexibility for our users.
Inventory Transfers allows users to execute inventory movements between projects by locating inventory and includes the transfer of financial transactions in just a few clicks.
In our flexible execution model, the default "holder" of inventory is the Project (don't sweat, this can be customized, and we have seen organizations use 'Job', 'Branch', 'Division', etc...). The application tracks inventory controlled by each Project, along with the associated costs. This allows for project centric procurement, including project specific financials and inventory reporting. This focus works fantastically, providing native support for job/project costing, particularly in the EPC Procurement model.
However, the team collectively saw potential for other types of execution models with the ability to move inventory, with the associated financials, between two projects (or two jobs, or two divisions). This would facilitate full support for:
Current SCM has great tooling to locate inventory of specific items across all of a teams inventory locations. In addition, with this new feature, we have launched additional tools to locate, and get summary pricing information in one place. This makes transfer pricing setting a breeze.
Select either the average price of the inventory, the last price paid for that item, or manually configure the transfer pricing, which ever matches your internal policies.
Upon approval, Current SCM takes care of the heavy lifting and creates two offsetting financial transactions: a Purchase Order to recognize costs in the receiving project, and a Sales Order to recognize revenue in the providing project. These transactions are available to dive into just like your other transactions.
Just like other inventory transactions, you will see a clear entry in the inventory transaction ledger to show the movement. The receiving project will show a Transfer In and the providing project a Transfer Out
The Current SCM team is really excited to get this functionality into the hands of our users. We feel the ability to easily, and rapidly transfer inventory between jobs will further enhance Current SCM as the best procurement system for project based organizations.
