Direct Store Delivery
Edible DSD (Direct Store Delivery) is an optional add-on module that will enable you to maintain inventory on every truck in your fleet, and to then be able to take orders and make sales directly from each one. It is another Edible Software profitability-maximizing tool that can be used to increase sales by having immediate deliveries to, and face-to-face contact with your customers.
With Edible DSD, each of your trucks becomes a rolling warehouse from which inventory can be tracked, received and sold. Since inventory is maintained and stored on each truck, each order can be placed, filled and finalized by the driver.
On a regular basis, inventory is sent to or loaded onto each truck. At that time, Edible Software deducts the loaded product from the relevant warehouse's inventory and adds it to the specific truck's inventory. Then, at the customer location, the driver/salesperson determines what products, in what quantities are required by the customer, and then pulls these from the inventory on his/her truck. An invoice can then be immediately printed from the truck and the products handed over to the customer.
At some later time during the day, Edible DSD can then electronically transfer the orders to Edible Software and all of the necessary accounting routines are then updated.
Using Edible Software, a physical inventory count can and should be performed on the truck inventory on a regular basis, and the results can then be validated against the physical inventory on-hand per Edible Software.
