Item Replenishment Routine Module (IRR), Microsoft Dynamics NAV

Our customers often request a solution for keeping their inventory systems free from over-stocking and spend, but wish to remain scalable during seasons of high demand. The Inventory Management system in Microsoft Dynamics NAV provides a comprehensive functionality that will help control your inventory for increased operational efficiency, improved customer service, reduced inventory and distribution costs.

Item Replenishment Routine Module (IRR) is an extension module to the NAV inventory management system and as such, is built using Microsoft coding principles and deployed within NAV.

The prime purpose of the IRR module is to assist the management of planning parameters on the item card and stock keeping unit. This means that your stock levels are constantly monitored as part of your Inventory Management.

This routine suggests minimum stock and or reordering levels based on historical transactions usage of an item. This helps maintain a lean stock level within the business.
