Why perform a stocktake?

The stock take process

How to create a stocktake in Cim50

Step 1 – Create a new count.

Before you can begin counting your stock, you need to create a new count. This is where you can decide which items you want to count in Cim50. Cim50 stocktake gives you the option to either perform a full count, for every item within the system or count specific items, which allows you to add filters, counting items in a certain category, product group, supplier, etc.

Step 2 – Print count sheets and count the stock.

Use the stocktake count sheet to record the counted stock. When printing your count sheets, you have the option to preview the report, export, or email this to a colleague if required.

The stocktake count sheet displays your item code, description, location, the expected quantity, and the new counted quantity.
