Oh that’s something pretty clever! I prefer to have a full view of all your printers and automatically order new toner. But there are circumstances that make a stock on site necessary. E.g. if you need toner for certain devices fast or maybe you just like to have some nice cartridges in your own warehouse – who doesn’t like to look at some nice boxes on the shelf, reminds me a bit of Tetris… Whatever. My stock administration works like this:
In this section you define how many toner cartridges should always be in stock (minimum stock) and from which quantity on I have to reorder (filling quantity). In the settings for the printer you then simply set the connection to your stock, so that this printer gets new cartridges directly from your warehouse. As soon as the toner on this device runs out and you insert a new one from your shelf, I notice this and automatically remove a cartridge in the stock administration.
And if I then see too few in stock, I immediately reorder. So you are never out of water (even if toner is more dry than wet…).
Stock administration is also interesting for anyone who has printers that I can’t see (because they’re not in your network). Then I just manage the toner, but not the device itself. Still this is a great support for you!
Totally cool: You can also do a proper inventory in the stock administration! For example, you can add or subtract toner when you insert a cartridge from your warehouse into a printer that I don’t have on my screen. Yes, I am a bit proud of my stock administration… Have fun with it!
Very important: The stock administration only works if you are a customer of Topcart and buy the products created in the stock there.
