It’s critical to keep an accurate record of the quantities you receive so that you can know exactly how much inventory you have on hand. With Zip Ordering, the receiving process ensures that orders are always received accurately. If any of the items you’ve ordered are damaged or missing, you can adjust the quantities and even send a credit memo to the supplier.
With suggested ordering you can make sure that you always maintain optimal inventory. Zip Ordering combines your ingredient usage, on hand, sales data, and supplier delivery calendars to make ordering as accurate as possible. When taking receiving, received quantities can be adjusted to guarantee that your on hand quantities are always correct. You can also create custom order guides and combine items from different suppliers so that you can send multiple purchase orders with one click.
With Zip Ordering, you can monitor your spending and set budgets so that you’re never at risk of spending more than you need to. The dashboard makes it easy to see the total value of all your orders for the week, how many orders you have placed, and the number of suppliers you’ve ordered from. You can also navigate to the historical orders section of the application and get a complete breakdown of every order you’ve placed.
Price increases can sometimes go unnoticed because they happen over extended periods of time. Zip Ordering provides you with the ability to hold suppliers accountable and see the pricing trend for every ingredient you purchase. You can look back at when you first started purchasing ingredients from a specific supplier and you can see how the price has changed over time. You can use this information to make sure that you always choose the suppliers with the best price.
In Zip Ordering, orders are organized by status so that managing orders is easier than ever.

Running out of inventory or ordering too much of an ingredient are both major issues that can have disastrous consequences. Luckily, with Zip Ordering you can set alerts for both of these issues and prevent them from happening. Low inventory alerts can be configured so that you’ll receive a notification as soon as you’re running low on a specific ingredient. Similarly, you can set alert quantities that prevent you from ordering more than the specified amount of a particular item.
