Can I get a dashboard that shows me orders that need to be approved? 


Yes. One of the most valuable capabilities in the eTurns TrackStock VMI inventory replenishment app is the dashboard. The dashboard is the first screen users see when they log in and it shows the user their to-do list. Each module that can have pending transactions will indicate with a red circle the number of transactions that need the user's attention to be completed. If an order is created but not submitted, it will be visible. If it has not yet been approved, it will appear with a red circle. The number of stockouts that have occurred this year will be in a red circle.


Can I get alerts when stockroom on hand quantity falls below the minimum, or I have stockouts? 


Yes. The number of items whose "on hand quantity" is under the minimum or over the maximum will be called out. If a requisition is awaiting approval, the user will know. If an asset needs maintenance or a tool needs calibration, the dashboard will highlight it. One click on the specific alert will take the user directly to the area in question for action.

eTurns provides a graph that brings together in one graphic the result of all of your company’s hard work to optimize inventory and maximize services levels. It is a clear metric of results over a specified period of time. On one graph, users can see total inventory value, inventory turns, and the number of stockouts that month. Whether users are managing their own inventory or that of their customers, this graph will allow them to determine effectiveness.
