Kounta Stock Count

Inventory in Kounta is used to track how much of a bulk product is used when a product is sold through the POS.  It is often easy to start with items you buy in such as bottled drinks and meat then build up to the entire menu.

If you haven’t loaded your full recipes into Kounta you can still use the Stock component of the Inventory module to run your stock counts and understand your stock on hand.

Enabling Inventory

Inventory is free under the all plans.
 To enable follow these steps

  1. Tap Sites

  2. Select your Site

  3. Choose Inventory

  4. Tap Enable

Once enabled 2 new tabs called Purchases and Stocktake will show on your Site Level horizontal menu
