Inventory control is a key component in running a lean and profitable business.

Don't fall victim to inaccuracies or be overrun with frustration, missed sales, surprising shortages and lost income. RB increases accuracy and efficiency in inventory management.

RB Control Systems provides pool and spa dealers with a robust inventory management module that includes all of the following:

  • Unlimited crossover part numbers
  • Kit Creator for selling pool, spa and other packages
  • Custom Kit Builder
  • Automated customer equipment profiles
  • Mass inventory adjustments
  • Automated ordering methods
  • Wish List ordering communication tool
  • Purchasing, Receiving and Accounts Payable Costing
  • Tracking special orders and backorders
  • Returned goods orders
  • Warehouse transfers
  • Warranty tracking
  • Serial numbers

  • Integration to pool industry vendors
  • Manage multiple locations and multiple warehouses

Easily search inventory by department, category, vendor or description or a combination of any. Unique to RB Control Systems is the ability to search inventory by typing any portion of an item's description! The exclusive RB Simple Search™ allows you to also take advantage of the same easy description search in a sale or sales order.

Select the percentage mark up or margin for each item and the retail price is automatically calculated. You can revise retail prices and the percentage markup/margin will be adjusted to reflect the revised price. Choose to have the Point of Sale system send an automated message to staff when retail prices are changed. This keeps all sales people and service technicians informed of changes and keeps shelf tags updated to prevent issues with shoppers.

Attach Insta-Text™ to any item in inventory to print on receipts. For example, attach the text for items like solar and winter pool covers, "All returns under warranty are done directly through the manufacturer. Please keep the paperwork inside the box." This clarifies your return policies in writing directly on the receipt. These messages are automatically applied when the specified items are added to sales orders which prevent future misunderstandings and problems.
