Use this routine to set up records for each store or warehouse location in which you create sales orders, receive and transfer products, and/or generate general ledger activity.

Cost Centers

Whenever you create a location record, the system automatically creates an associated cost center. When you click on Save, the option appears to add the cost center to existing GL accounts. The system creates cost centers to track general ledger activity by location.  If using QuickBooks®, you must set up a matching cost center "CLASS" in your third-party accounting software for each cost center in STORIS.

The system does not allow you to create a new location if an associated GL cost center already exists. You must delete the existing GL cost center first. This includes GL cost centers whose codes are numerically equivalent to their associated locations. For example, if a GL cost center exists with a code of '009', and you attempt to create a location with a code of '9', an error message appears and the system disallows the action.

When you create or edit a new location, be sure to update the Zip Code records associated with customer ship-to locations for delivery sales orders.  

Restricting Employee Access to Locations Using Location Lists

Use the Accessible Locations List field on the Miscellaneous page to specify a list of locations (if any) to which you want to grant employees access. The list affects all employees who sign on to the selected location. The system references this list when a location list has not been specified in user settings. Note that you can also restrict user access using the Regional Processing feature.

Warehouse/Store Code

When you create a merchandise transfer between locations, the system automatically creates a corresponding customer record using the same code as the Warehouse Location record.

An interim location is defined as the storage location of a piece that has been picked but hasn’t been moved to the prep or stage location. After merchandise is picked, it is dropped at an interim location waiting for another user to move it to the next location and status.

Use this page to set up the Automatic Stock Replenishment for Locations process, which generates transfers of stock products that have fallen below the user-defined stock level established in the Warehouse Inventory Settings file.  To use the replenishment process, the Replenishment Active check box must be enabled for Stores and/or Warehouses on the Replenishment page of Inventory Control Settings.

If replenishment information is populated, the Primary/Secondary warehouse locations specified are used for replenishment of all products from the warehouse/store, except products belonging to a product group or product category that has replenishment locations specified. Replenishment information at those levels overrides settings on this page for the warehouse/store location.

Replenishment Warehouse

 The system uses the Primary and Secondary Replenishment Warehouse fields with the Automatic Stock Replenishment feature. You can set replenishment locations in several files. When searching for a replenishment warehouse, the system checks the Primary and Secondary Replenishment Warehouse fields in the following routines, in the following order:

  1. product Group record

  2. product Category record

  3. Warehouse Location record

  4. Region record

  5. If none are found, the system uses the settings in the Inventory Control Settings



Automatically Replenish On

Select either the Next Available Date setting or select the days of the week you want to make available for automatic stock replenishment transfers.  The Next Available Date and the days of the week settings are mutually exclusive.
