In a ship there are many different places where you can store your things and many items that need to be stowed. But how to keep track of this?
For this task our Add-on Inventory is very helpful. With Inventory you can manage quite easily the storage and inventory of all items in your ship.
You can specify in Inventory for each item exactly where it is stored using a hierarchical structure with four levels (eg. saloon, port side, locker under seat, red box). This ensures that you will find everything without searching through the whole ship.
The use of categories for your items such as tools, spare parts, detergents and various sorting functions ease the search for a specific item in the inventory list. For each item a minimum amount can be specified. When this minimum amount is reached or exceeded, a highly visible color marking highlights that a soon replenishment is needed. In addition, an expiration date can be specified. A color marker then indicates the shelf life status.
Manufacturer, part number and supplier of the item can also be stored in Inventory, as well as up to four photos per entry.
The search function of Inventory provides a text search and a function to search for items at low or very low inventory. This makes it really easy to create shopping lists.
And of course the lists and the detail views can be printed out. For this Inventory provides—as well as the other modules of Logbook Suite—special layouts that are optimised for printing.
If you use the Add-on Maintenance, Inventory is a good addition. Because Inventory communicates with the Add-on Maintenance. In Maintenance you can select the tools and materials you need from your ship’s inventory in Inventory, and in Maintenance you can see the location of the parts you need.
By the way, Inventory is not only a useful inventory management tool for the ship, but als very helpful to keep track of the inventory in the hobby room or the workshop, the maintenance of stocks and many more.
The Add-on Inventory can be used in Logbook Suite on Mac, with Windows and on the iPad and in Logbook Suite PhoneTools on iPhone.
In the demo mode of Inventory you can create nine entries. Entering a serial number converts your trial version of Inventory into a full version with unlimited use.
