Inventory Manager

A robust inventory tracking module that provides you with the ability to track inventory down to the option level (combination of options actually; large red, large green, etc.).

BONUS! Compatibility with Stone Edge's Order Manager was a driving force behind this module's development so you can count on it being.....compatible.

Extra BONUS! The module now comes with the ability to do flatfile imports and exports of your inventory.

Unlike the stock Merchant inventory feature, this module lets you define as many inventory notification "levels" as you want each with it's own inventory cut-off. For each level you can configure emails to be sent as well as determine what action, if any, is to be taken when the product's inventory reaches that level. You can configure the levels to take no action, prevent the sale of the product, or prevent the display of the product (by making the product inactive). So you could have a level for "low inventory" and assign a cut-off of say 3 items to it and that notification level will be triggered and send you an email notifying you that inventory is getting low. You could also specify a second level of "out of stock" and assign a cut-off of 0 items to it. When the inventory reaches the cut-off for "low inventory" it will send out emails as configured for that level and prevent further sales of the module.

In addition to being able to configure the email and action of a specific notification level, you can also specify "short" and "long" notes that can be displayed wherever the inventory can be displayed. The inventory, note, etc. are displayed with the use of "tokens and templates" and is obviously very configurable.

If a customer attempts to add product to their basket which is currently at an inventory level that prevents sales, the module will take the customer to an "Insufficient inventory" to display an "out of stock" message. The page is configured with "tokens and templates" and can include a back button to take the customer back to the last page they were on.

The inventory count is adjusted as the customer adds the product to their basket. However, the module doesn't wait until you delete expired baskets to retrieve inventory. It can be configured to dynamically sweep the inventory of expired baskets back into stock. It sweeps every time the product is displayed so no inventory "lingers" in expired baskets. It can also be done from within the module's admin and the inventory display on the individual product's "Inventory Manager" page shows you how many of the product are currently in "unexpired" baskets (the expired baskets already having been cleaned of inventory before the count is displayed).

The module will let you track inventory for any combination of attributes and options that a product might have (you can even track inventory for "checkbox" type attributes; I don't know why anyone would want to but I'm sure someone will eventually discover that they need to).

In addition, instead of tracking inventory by "count", you can select to track a product in "simple" mode; e.g. you can assign a particular notification level to a product (eg. "in stock" or "out of stock") but the inventory count itself does not change. The inventory level stays the same until you change it in admin. The ability to track in simple mode is an option for each product/attribute. So you can track some of your items in "simple" mode while using the full capability of the module in tracking the inventory of others.

The module has the ability to display the inventory and control the display on the products, category, search, and product listing pages. It also has tokens for use with our Template modules as well as the OpenUI.

Note: This module requires ver. 3.9x or higher of the Miva Engine.

Brilliant Software!!!!! 07/29/2005 - by Jerry Stevens from Zephyrhills, FL US
If you need to track inventory, This is the Program for MIva Merchant. Communicating inventory and delivery times to customers is quick and easy. Very powerful features, yet simple to set up and maintain.
Superb! 01/31/2005 - by Kevin S. from NH
If you need to track attributes, this is the ONLY module to buy. Works as advertised. Can't say enough positives about this module. Would pay 3 times the price.
