Too much stock and you’re tying up your cash flow. Too little and you’re constantly chasing your own tail for parts and materials and running up huge bills. Staying competitive means keeping a lid on these costs. That means running a mean, lean purchasing and stock control machine. That’s where simPRO excels.
Supplier Price Lists
Over the years, simPRO has developed partnerships with major wholesale suppliers whose catalogues and price lists are available to you through the system. What’s more, they are kept up to date so you know the figures are accurate when you call them into a job. If you want, simPRO also lets you access full manufacturer catalogues via Traser® or imported Excel worksheets.
If your preferred wholesaler isn’t listed here, please let us know.
Controlling costs starts with efficient purchasing and stock control processes
There are only two ways to increase profits on any job or project – increase your prices or reduce your costs. Increasing prices or margins isn’t easy in today’s competitive environment and you need to make sure all of your costs are under control. Because of this, your purchasing and stock control processes need to be efficient.
Other than labour and vehicles – and we’ll cover them in Scheduling – stock is your most significant cost. Managing it and controlling it is vital. Too much stock and you’re tying up cash unnecessarily. Too little and you’re constantly chasing your own tail for parts and materials and wasting billable time.
“simPRO’s stock control system is legendary and ensures the right type and quantity of materials is on hand to complete the job on the spot for the client.”
Luke Pritchard – Owner, Prestige Power
Purchase orders are raised through the system and allocated directly to the job. When you receive your supplier invoice, it’s easy to check the job it was assigned to and if the price was right.
simPRO removes the headache of stock control by providing real time stock levels on every storage location including back orders and overdue purchase orders for jobs.
