We are happy to announce T. I. Midwood (TIMco) have decided to implement Warehouse Manager X3 into their Sage ERP X3 system. As one of the UK’s largest wholesale suppliers of screws, fastenings, fixings and power tool accessories, TIMco import over 4,000 product lines.

Why are perpetual stock takes better than yearly ones?

b2ap3_thumbnail_stocktake.jpgPerpetual stock takes track products throughout the warehouse process. This balances records after every transaction and therefore results should be accurate providing there is no theft or spoilage.
