Do I add items to my order in VetCove before or after finalizing your Inventory Ally order?

Updated over a week ago

Navigating the ordering process with Inventory Ally and VetCove can be made even more efficient by incorporating some best practices. Here's a guide on whether to add items to your order in VetCove before or after finalizing your Inventory Ally order.

While you can complete the task in either order, we recommend searching and adding items in Inventory Ally before finalizing your order and sending it to VetCove. Here's why:

  1. Detailed Insights:

    • When you search in Inventory Ally and enter your current count for the item, you can review valuable information specific to the item, like the last ordered date, usage per 30 days, and order history.

    • This allows you to make informed decisions, adjust ordering frequency, favouriting items, or merge products as needed, ensuring data-driven purchasing decisions.


      ​

  2. Time-saving Sync:

    • Inventory Ally will synchronize everything to your VetCove shopping list, eliminating the need to search and manually add items to your cart. This not only saves time but also enhances accuracy.
      ​

  3. Ordering Recommendations:

    • Inventory Ally displays ordering recommendations for each item, helping you prevent over or under-ordering. This feature ensures that you maintain optimal stock levels based on your specific needs.


      ​

  4. Improved Demand Calculation:

    • By entering a count of zero or less than the minimum for out-of-cycle items in Inventory Ally, you contribute to a more accurate calculation of product demand.

    • This information, combined with consumption patterns and order history, allows Inventory Ally to adjust minimum and maximum values, enhancing overall inventory management.
