In SAP Business One 9.0, Inventory Counting functionality was enhanced to support larger variety of counting methods and scenarios.

You can now:

  • Create multiple Inventory Counting documents at the same time, Save, View and Update Inventory Counting document till the differences are copied into the inventory posting document

  • Directly update counting results in the Inventory Posting document and post the differences immediately

  • Choose whether to calculate in-house warehouse quantities according to the system or posting dates of the inventory transactions

  • Freeze Items during counting to prevent users from adding any document which can create a stock movement as long as the inventory counting is in process

  • Perform Inventory Count by Multiple Counters, to either validate results of up to five counters, or sum up counting results of up to ten counters

  • Manage counts by bin locations

  • Count the exact serial and batch numbers

  • Enter count quantities by the items' defined units of measures - SAP Business One will automatically sum up all quantities according to the items' inventory unit of measure quantity

  • Import from Excel items or finalized inventory counts directly into Inventory Counting document or Inventory Posting document, including import of counts for bin locations, import by the defined unit of measure, and import of the counted serial and batch numbers
