StockMate is an iOS app that is available as an enhancement to the OrderMate stock control software. It is used to record stock counts on a portable device which are then sent directly to the live stocktake in OfficeMate. Download the free app directly from the apple app store.
Step 1 – Configuration of the App
Once the App has been downloaded the settings need to be configured so the app is ready for use. Select ‘Settings’ on the device and follow the path to the StockMate Settings. Change the URL to the ip address of ServerMate. This can be found by selecting the world icon from the WaiterMate login screen.
The StockMate App is now ready for use.
Step 2 – Opening the App
Begin by connecting to the same network that your OrderMate software is connected to. Open the app and choose ‘Count Stock’. If there is not a stocktake currently open, StockMate will prompt to start a new stocktake.
Step 3 – Finding the Stock Item
After logging in select the ‘Stock Area’ then the ‘Stock Group’ and then the ‘Stock Item’ to be counted.
Any Stock previously counted for this stocktake will be displayed as ‘Current Count’.
Enter the ‘Outer Quantity’ of the stock counted into the ‘Outers’ feild by selecting the field and then using the keypad below. Values will be displayed in the ‘Current Count’ as total units.
Additional ‘Units’ should be entered in the ‘Inners’ Field and will be added to the ‘Current Count’.
Choose either ‘Add’ to include this figure as additional stock to the value displayed in the ‘Current Count’, or
Choose ‘Override’ to replace the value in the ‘Current Count’.
Step 5 – Sending the Count to ServerMate
The items counted are required to be sent to ServerMate by navigating back to the login screen and selecting the ‘Send to ServerMate’ icon. Any stock counted will now be visible in the live stocktake in OfficeMate.
