MANUAL & AUTO BATCH
You can select specific batch of an item at the time of billing so that your stock is managed absolutely accurately.
If you do not have the feasibility of being able to specify batch numbers at the time of billing due to time constraints at the billing counter, you can ask HDPOS to apply the batch numbers to the sales invoices based on earlier expiration dates first marked (auto batch)
Keep items in multiple batches and get extensive information about that items' stock and in batches. You can view the consolidated stock of such items in any warehouse as well as see the stock broken up by individual batch number and expiration date.
You can also move stock of specific batch of item from one warehouse to another.
