Transferring Inventory to Other Locations

Counterpoint allows for multi-step transfers of multiple items between locations. To complete a transfer, you will enter and post Transfer Out and Transfer In. The multi-step transfer out/in process provides for greater audit control to send out of the From location and receive in to the To location. Counterpoint automatically reconciles any quantity discrepancies when the Transfer In is posted, using the “transfer as received” method. This means that any overages or shortages update quantities at the From location.

There is also a one step process called a Quick Transfer to move inventory from one location to another with one posting. This is most frequently used to move inventory from a storage location to a store location.
