What is Multi-Location Inventory?

Multi-Location Inventory (MLI) helps you track and manage your products across different storage areas or retail outlets. Here’s what it allows you to do:

  • Manage Stock: Automatically update stock levels when products are moved, sold, or returned.
  • Fulfill Orders Efficiently: Choose the best shipping locations based on stock availability and proximity to the customer.
  • Offer Flexibility: Allow customers to choose between home delivery or picking up from a nearby location.

How Does MLI Work?

MLI simplifies managing diverse stock locations through a centralized system that communicates real-time information.

Example Scenario: Shoe Store

  • Locations: Main warehouse, Store A (Downtown), Store B (Suburb)
  • Default Location: Main warehouse (stocks all product types) for online sales.
  • Physical Locatios: Store A stocks limited editions and high-end models Store B Holds only the top sellers.

Customers see real-time availability at locations nearest to them so they can try the shoes before their first purchase.

Example Scenario: Pizza Store
