Inventory Control in Microsoft Dynamics GP – Training

This course shows you how to define default system parameters to improve user efficiency and cut down on costly data entry errors. These parameters include General Ledger accounts used in the Inventory Control module, as well as sites, product classes, valuation methods, and more. This course shows you how to group items for pricing, promotional, or analytical purposes and by type, such as finished goods, raw material, component, and more. You learn how to quickly find information such as inventory quantity on hand, quantity available, quantity on back order, costs, and list prices, and where to drill down to transaction details. You learn how to manage multiple sites, multiple bins within sites, negative quantities, and lot/serial numbers. You see how Lot/Serial Number tracking is streamlined during inventory transaction entry. You will also learn how to simplify entry and reconciliation of physical inventory counts.

This course is intended for anyone who plans to implement, use, maintain, consult, or support any part of the Inventory and Order Processing series. The class is targeted toward administrators, office managers, CEOs, and consultants who need to understand the technical aspects of Inventory Control and gain foundational knowledge of the application functionality.
