Problems with accounting and control of inventory items
Proper accounting of inventory items in your warehouse helps to avoid difficulties in the operation of the enterprise, plan costs and fulfil obligations to counterparties on time. What problems can companies face in the process:
Most often, this problem occurs due to the inattention of employees. When the acceptance is fast, the employee does not have time to fill out the documents, confuses the records or fails to notice them. Or, when issuing products, does not immediately record the required product or material. Also, the error happens due to incorrectly opened cards, confusion with the quantity when receiving and de-registering, confusion in the names. As a result, the total quantity adds up, but there is more of one type of product than according to the documents and less of the other. Automation helps to avoid this problem – when recording occurs by simply and quickly reading the marks, and employees do not record anything manually, the process becomes error-free and prompt.
This problem usually results from inventory or work errors. Also, in some cases, the documents simply have not yet reached the accounting department – this situation happens in firms where control and reporting are conducted on paper. If you record everything electronically, then synchronization is instant and there is no lost information.
Delay in documentation from suppliers
Sometimes warehouse accounting of inventory items is a difficult task not because of the fault of employees or the lack of workflow organization, but due to the failure of other parties of the transaction. Suppliers ship the goods, but do not provide the documents promptly. As a result, the company cannot write off a product that, according to the law, has not yet been delivered to the parish. It is also a huge problem for reconciliation – everything should be checked at once to file claims in case of non-compliance.
