Are you looking to gain visibility into your inventory on Salesforce? Arka can help you get a better understanding of your inventory in various ways.
Location-Wise Inventory: Arka provides visibility into your inventory based on location. You can track inventory levels at different locations such as warehouses, stores, and distribution centers. This information can help you optimize your inventory levels and reduce stockouts.
Inventory of Bill of Materials: When an item is built or a kit is created using multiple components or materials, Arka brings visibility into the maximum number of quantities that can be built from the available component or material inventory. This allows you to plan production and ensure that you have the necessary materials on hand.
Reserved and Backorder Inventory: Arka helps you reserve inventory against orders and gives visibility into expected inventory from suppliers. With this information, you can ensure that you have enough inventory to fulfill customer orders and avoid stockouts.
Minimum Stock Levels: Arka can also maintain minimum stock levels and give you visibility on items reaching or below the minimum stock levels.
Arka provides inventory information across Salesforce, including at the product level, while creating opportunities, quotes, or orders or on Sales Cloud or Service Cloud. This allows you to see inventory levels and availability in real-time, so you can make informed decisions about sales and order fulfillment.
You can also share this information with partners using Salesforce community features or add it to your B2B or B2C commerce platforms. This means that your partners and customers can access inventory information in real-time, leading to more efficient supply chain management and increased customer satisfaction.
Overall, with Arka, you can improve your inventory visibility on Salesforce and make data-driven decisions about your inventory management.
Setup inventory alerts on Salesforce
Arka can help you set up various alerts to different team members based on inventory data, so you can stay on top of your inventory management. Here are some examples of alerts that Arka can help you set up:
Alerts to Sales Reps: Arka can send alerts to sales reps when inventory arrives for orders that are under back order or when there is an expected delay or disruption in the supply chain. This allows sales reps to proactively manage customer expectations and ensure timely fulfillment of orders.
Alerts to Fulfillment: Arka can also send alerts to fulfillment teams for items that need to be packed against an order. Sometimes, items shown on sales orders may be different from what you have to communicate to the back-office team for pack and ship. Same item may be being sold in different names in different sales channels or items may have sub-components. Arka’s bill of material feature can help you address all such requirements and assign the right items for back-office operations for ordered items.
Low Inventory Alerts: Arka can also be configured to generate alerts based on low stocks, so you can take action to replenish your inventory before it’s too late. This helps you avoid stockouts and ensure that you always have the inventory you need to fulfill customer orders.
Alerts to customers and vendors: Alerts to customers or vendors based on inventory information can also be configured using Arka.
With Arka, you can set up many different types of alerts based on the movement of inventory. This helps you stay on top of your inventory management and make data-driven decisions to optimize your supply chain.
