Units of Measurement Conversion

Automatically Adjust Prices and Margins

Easily Manage Multiple Units of Measure

Stock the right products

Inventory Manager

Prior to RockSolid MAX, doing physical inventory counts was time-consuming and painful. Now, we can do cycle counts or even a full inventory easily and we don’t need to close the store to do it! Our inventory management features allow me to:

  • Track inventory in real-time, eliminating guesswork
  • Improve accuracy by reconciling shipments on receipt
  • Easily update and track inventory discrepancies so shelf counts are accurate

Now we stock the right products so customers find what they need and we don’t have cash tied up on the shelves.

Purchasing Manager

Before we switched to RockSolid MAX, I would have to visually count what we had on hand to see what we needed or rely on my gut feel for what I thought we had in stock; that set us up for lots of errors. It would take hours to put together an order—I’d have to count what we had, figure out what we needed, look up the pricing, and then call it all in. RockSolid MAX has improved our ordering because it:

  • Tracks inventory in real-time, eliminating guesswork for purchasing
  • Automatically sets re-orders based on the previous history
  • Electronically interfaces with most major wholesalers and suppliers, making ordering seamless
  • Emails POs to the supplier, creating a paper trail for our records
  • Easily rectifies wrong deliveries and other potential issues

It’s given us a much better idea of what’s selling and what’s just gathering dust on the shelves. Our buying and overall purchasing processes are so much more efficient and profitable with RockSolid MAX!

  • View data in real-time so I always have accurate information on accounts
