Who at Your Suppliers Can Break the Rules?
Need a favor from your supplier? A better cost? Faster delivery? Waiving of fees?  Who at your suppliers can break the rules to help you out?  Also, who at your company should be asking your suppliers to break which rules?

Distribution "Quip" of the Month

WarehouseTWO Tip of the Month

Choose the best inventory data postings "expiration period" based on how and how often you upload fresh inventory data.  Suggested guidelines:
  • If you post your data AUTOMATICALLY, either every night or every weeknight, select "After 7 Days" and check the box labeled "Auto-Delete Unrefreshed Records" on your location record(s).   With these settings, your data will always be fresh but will stay on the WarehouseTWO website if your nightly upload fails.  With this setting, account administrators will not receive inventory data expiration reminder emails.
  • If you post your data manually, select "After 30 Days".   Account administrators (and non-administrators set to receive reminder emails) will receive email reminders five days before any inventory data record is set to expire.
We do not recommend that you select "After 1 Day", "After 90 Days", or "After 365 Days".  Ask us why.
