In order to help you find your answers more easily, we've divided the questions under two categories.
Can we store details of customers without the need for re-typing them for every transaction?
Yes, and thereby WarrantyTrack helps you minimise errors and speed up your work as well.
Does WarrantyTrack also store supplier details?
Is it possible to have a single product coming from multiple suppliers?
Yes. And you can track every piece of the product by suppliers.
How do I allocate a supplier to a product?
First, you need to have the supplier information entered into the system. Next, you can conveniently assign the supplier to every entry of new stock.
Does every item need to have a product and serial number?
Yes, it is mandatory. It's through these codes that every item becomes trackable.
What's the difference between the product code and serial number?
Product Code is common to a single product. Eg: IBM Mouse with wheel Model: MO32BO. You can have several pieces of this product.
Serial number is unique to every single piece. You cannnot have the same Serial number of all of the pieces for a single product.
Are the features on the menu, the only ones available on WarrantyTrack?
This release is just the start of the core. It will be extended pretty soon and all users can look forward to free updates.
