Stock control system
« on: July 28, 2010, 09:31:07 AM »
Hi all,

i have created an stock control system for virtuemart 1.1.4. What can you do with it?

  • Synchronize articles to the component
  • Add purchase price
  • Add minimum stock
  • Add minimum order
  • Synchronize Sales from virtuemart
  • Check which orders are payed and in stock
  • Article reserving
  • Multiple supplier support
  • Generate a order list for a supplier based on the sales, min stock and min order
  • Colored lines for giving priority in which products you need to order at the supplier
  • Export the order list for a supplier to excel
  • Put the stock of the componenent back to virtuemart
  • Many direct links to virtuemart for easy handling

All of this aint perfect yet, but im running it at my webshop.
And i never want to be without it.

So im wondering who else has a need for this component.

in particular i'm interested in •Multiple supplier support.

Hi dipsol,

I've got a bilingual site w/o JoomFish. The main site is English and a subdomain is German, other languages may follow. The two databases are independent. Thus, my problem is getting sales and article status changes synchronized. The solutions I've seen up to now are based on sharing a common database, which won't work in my case, since the product descriptions for instance would have to be in one language or the other - or both...

So your component sounds like a good solution. Do you also synch the users? That's only a secondary concern and there are solutions for that on the JED. Feel free to PM me if you like.

Actually the component can only synchronize articles from virtuemart to it self.

The solution you need is a bit more trickier, but should be doable. The thing you need to consider that you still need to add different languages to be able what you want. This aint part off this component, but it can be made.
