Handling Job Works in RetailGraph

RetailGraph Handles Job Work (Issue & Receive Material and Finished Goods)

We all are familiar with RetailGraph's capabilities of handling single and multi store formats. As a Retail Management System RetailGraph offer retailers a complete POS solution for managing Inventory, Accounts, Reports, Promotion, and CRM etc.

 It is equally suitable for Distribution, Wholesale business and works on Windows, Web and Android. But there is some thing more which it is capable of, this feature is of Job Works Handling.


Let us understand a little more about "Job Work" and where it is used 

A work order or job order (sometimes job ticket or work ticket, as it often has some type of ticket attached) is an order received by an organization from a customer or client, or an order created internally within the organization. A work order may be for products or services

A job order is an internal document extensively used by projects-based, manufacturing, building and fabrication businesses. A job order may be for products and/or services. In a manufacturing environment, a job order is used to signal the start of a manufacturing process and will most probably be linked to a bill of material. Hence, the job order will probably state:
  • the quantity of the product to be manufactured, built or fabricated
  • the amount of raw material to be used, its price and amount
  • the types of labor required, rate (per hour or per unit) and amount
  • the machine utilization for each machine during the routing process, its rate and amount
RetailGraph is proud to associate itself with No.1 knitwear brand in India, covering the entire range of knitted garments from inner wear to casual wear. 

With the capacity to produce over 700,000 pieces of finished goods made from the finest yarns which were sourced from across the globe. Its State of the art technology for dyeing and bleaching to maintain quality and minimize carbon foot prints.

JOB WORKS FOR THE EXCLUSIVE BRAND
In the below mentioned images we will be explaining the processes which were being followed in the manufacturing unit.

First is the issue of purchase order and purchase invoice.

DETAIL
  • Purchase Order is being raised in the software by Purchases Department.
  • Receipt of Raw Material at Plant Gate.
  • Security Check and Gate Entry 
  • Raw Material and Documents shared with Purchase Manager for checking purpose.
  • Documents received by Accounts for making purchase invoice and taking Raw Material into stores stock.


PROCESS AND WORK FLOW

The above process describes the issues of material from one location to another location and receiving of material from one location to other.

The above process can be described in RetailGraph as follows.

ISSUE MATERIAL FOR JOB WORKS


RECEIVE MATERIAL FOR JOB WORKS

This way RetailGraph handles the issue of material from one location ( Dept.) to another  and receiving semi-furnished and furnished material from other locations (Dept.)

Online Pharma Store - A step ahead of Competition

RetailGraph and Retail Store Software are synonymous and RetailGraph holds this attribute in all aspects for a Retailer.

Today's blog will focus towards the increasing adaptability of Online Purchases and how consumers are more open to purchase online.

I wrote last about Online buying where in we spoke about Shopping Online vs Shopping On Store This was almost a year back.

There are a lot of changes that has happened in this one year. Some of the generic insights which we all agree to are:

  • Increased Internet Users
  • Increase online Buyers
  • Increased Online Purchases 
  • Increase in E-Commerce Market size 
  • Increase use of Internet by Mobile Users and more 
and all of these are indicating one common thing which is "Increasing Online market and customer".

Let us understand this from a small story: Two Pharmaceutical Stores of Mr. Shyam and Mr. Ram catering to a locality.

Pharmaceutical Store
A typical pharmaceutical store caters to a wide range of product range. Mr. Shyam understood the importance of Online world and was quick to implement RetailGraph  E-Store for his Pharmaceutical store, and included the web address in his bills that he provides to the customers.

And on top of that at the time when he handles bills to the customers he simply highlights " We have our online store as well you can also purchase from our Website and we deliver in time"

This has become a hit in a few months and the tech savvy locality has become a loyal customer of Shyam Medical Store. Which leads to a decrease in revenues of Ram's store.

This way Mr. Shyam simply beat his competition with his Online Store.


Users are more aware and lesser afraid in buying Online than ever before. The Online Purchases are not only restricted to Garments, shoes and accessories but are prevalent in the most important parts of our lives yes i am talking about Medicines Or Chemist Store Or Pharmacy.

Online Drug purchase is a fairly young concept in India, and almost all the early entrants (Drug stores) who have adopted it are benefited from it.

RetailGraph which works as a POS software for pharmaceutical stores, also has the capability which enables the retailers to open their own Online Pharmacy shops and that too in no time.

Yes its true, if you are RetailGraph user you can open your own Online Store which will be in sync with your Store through RetailGraph so that you can easily manage your stock inventory and other operations.

Having an Online Store has its own benefits for Customer and Store Owners, Few of those are as below:

  • You sell 24x7 - More Business
  • Store Promotion and Branding
