The Secret to Great Inventory Management: The location Map.

Most inventory software starts with a list of products. CyberStockroom starts with an inventory map. The map is designed to give you a bird's eye view of your inventory so you can always easily answer the basic question:

 HOW many of WHAT do I have WHERE?

With just a glance at the map, you will immediately have an idea of how many products are contained in each location, and with one click, you will quickly know exactly what they are. For a basic understanding of how this works, please refer to the articles : Viewing a Product's Distribution, Color Coding Of The Locations, Setting A Minimum Threshold For All Products
