What is a stockroom Bill of Materials (BOM) and how can it help me manage items in a stockroom?


A stockroom Bill of Material is simply a list of items in a stockroom that you are trying to manage, count, track or replenish. eTurns TrackStock digitizes this list for you and makes sure that item information that is updated in one Bill of Material is updated consistently across all Bills of Material. After all, that's the point of digitizing, and believe it or not, it differentiates us from our competitors! eTurns also makes it easy to manage your Bill of Materials in all the ways you see below.
