You can use product inventory serialization in Orderry. It allows you to track the transfer history of product units by its serial number.

Keep your serialization to sell or add products to order from a specific shipment. As for non-serial products, the write-off from the warehouse works by the FIFO (First In, First Out) rule. It means the system will firstly write-off the first posted product.

Moreover, keeping serialization introduces the product unit passport for each product. Here’s the info you can view with it:

  • product posting information (shipment date and number);

  • transferring information (transfer destination and initiator employee);

  • product write-off or adding it to the order/sale.

For example, you received two shipments of the same tablets — from various suppliers — with different warranty periods and prices. At the same time, the product name is the same. Upon the product posting, you need to enable serial accounting. Firstly, post the supplier A shipment, with a 12-month warranty period and a purchase price of $1000. Then post the product with the same name — this time, from supplier B — with a 3-month warranty period and the purchase price of $600. Later, you will be able to select the specific tablet from the needed shipment upon the product sale or adding to the order. The price and the warranty period will correspond to the selected shipment.

This way, you can make sure that the serial numbers match with the Orderry ones in case the client returns the defective product. The system also allows you to track the shipment supplier. You can return the product to the supplier if needed.

Orderry enables you to specify the serial number from the product, generate a new one via Orderry, or enter your custom number manually. The serial number is a unique identifier that can consist of digits and Latin letters.
