By Robert | Updated


Note: You'll need to contact us to enable inventory synchronization before you can take inventory from an iPad POS.


By default, all products created are tracked into the inventory. There are various individual inventory settings for each product. To enter the product’s inventory settings, follow the instructions below

  1. Log into Revel Management Console
  2. Select the Products icon
  3. Select the Products tab on the left
  4. Navigate to a product
  5. Click the ”Inventory” icon for the product




Product Inventory Settings

This is to be used if the product itself needs to be inventoried as a whole; that is, it does not have ingredients. Example would be a can of Coke vs a cheeseburger. A cheeseburger can be assigned ingredients, so inventory keeps track of the amount of cheese, meat, buns, etc used per cheeseburger. Please click here to learn more about ingredients.


These settings are different from inventory settings

Inventory unit of measurement – This is the unit used by inventory tracking. So in this case, the inventory unit tracked for the product “coke can” is can.


Require serial number – If using the serial number feature, this marks that this product requires a serial number when being sold.


Default inventory item – If checked, the product will appear on the first window in the iPOS Inventory Management screen.


Track in inventory – This setting is on by default but disable it to remove tracking from the Inventory tab in the Management Console.


Bin value – Assign the product a BIN value, which can be searched up in the Inventory tab.


Primary vendor – Assign the product its primary vendor. This is used for vendor/purchase order feature within Revel to generate invoices.


Vendor Item ID – The specific vendor ID for this product.


Reorder unit type – When generating invoices, choose whether the reorder type is the default UoM (the can) or the stock unit made. More on stock units below.


Default reorder quantity – Set the default amount to order from the vendor.


Default reorder price – Set the default amount for the cost of the entire reorder.


Stock Units – These are the stock units, which the item may be purchased in or accounted for.  For example, a case of coke is 24 cans. When invoice is purchased, it can be set to purchase 4 cases as oppose to 96 cans.
