  • Add Inventory: Occurs when you receive an order.
  • Take Inventory: When you take the inventory of what you have on hand the day you take inventory (which may include recent deliveries).
  • On Hand: A snapshot of what you currently have in inventory.
  • Theoretical On Hand: Uses POS and Actual data to determine what you should currently have in inventory. Inventory items must be tied to the POS to determine Theoretical On Hand totals.
  • Auto Depletion: When an item that correlates to a recipe is rung up on the POS, that item will auto-deplete from inventory to give you what you should actually have on hand. Note: the item must be part of a recipe that is also tied to the POS.
  • Actual Inventory: Reconciles with Auto Depletion to determine what you have on hand. This occurs when you take inventory.
  • View History: Provides you with historical data to show how Theoretical On Hand totals were calculated.
  • Cost of Goods (COGs): The value of goods sold during a particular period of time.
  • Inventory Discrepancy: Depicts actual vs. ideal inventory.
