Warn-icon.png   Important Note: Mobile Inventory functionality is discontinued and unsupported. All supported Warehouse functionality is included now in Advanced Warehouse Operations modules.



This is a commercial module developed by Practics Business Solutions, Openbravo's partner, that allows counting all the items in the inventory and to update the new amount in the inventory.

Main points

It is essential that all the products must be notified in the Products screen to make any process of the inventory. The processes that are supported by this option are the main ones:


Auto create count list from Front End

A new preference can be set in order to create automatically a count list when a bin is selected or scanned in the front end.

Creating a Count List in Backoffice

This module has also the choice to support counting items from a previous count list created before in Back Office.

Let's see how is the process:

First at all, create a Physical Inventory

Then we can create a count list using one of the standard ways:

1. Using the Create Inventory count list button

2. Adding new lines with the products to count

Setting current Warehouse and Storage Bin

When a new document is created, the warehouse will be set with the same value as the one that has the user session. To change either the warehouse or the storage bin, the user must click the button. After that, a popup will appear, letting the user choose the new value.

The module supports scanning bin barcodes and products. When a product is read, a new line is created or the quantity counted is increased if a line exits with the same product/bin.

Modify counted quantity

A product can be selected in order to modify the counted quantity manually.
