Add Serial Numbers After Product is Picked
With Windward System Five, you can sell an item without the serial number, and take a deposit from the customer. When the warehouse ships the product to the customer, the serial number that is easiest to get to is selected and entered into the computer. Windward has several checks and balances to ensure that you don't forget to enter the serial numbers. This gives you the best of both worlds, allowing you to sell product and take deposits while still allowing for strong inventory control.
Among other things, shipping labels can include the:
- Contractor or Designer's name
- Owner's name
- Job address
- Fixture number
These labels can help keep track of the inventory in your warehouse, as well as making it easy to deliver and place in the correct room.
Real customers, real results.

Special orders, also known as tag orders, can be entered from the work order. If you try to sell an item that is not in stock, our appliance showroom software will prompt you with a pop-up window asking if you need to special order the item. By placing the item on special order, the system will ensure that you don’t forget to order it.
Windward’s appliance showroom software tracks and reports shipping dates to make it easy for your warehouse people to get shipments ready on time. They can optionally use the confirmed field to ensure that the builder or owner has confirmed the shipping dates before loading the truck.
Scrambled Part Numbers
By scrambling the part numbers, you can make it difficult for your customers to shop around and get better pricing. After all, part of your service is your designers deciding what would look nice where. The printed invoice for a fixture could contain the:
- Scrambled part number
Even with this extra information, the scrambled part number still makes it hard for them to shop elsewhere (Note: our appliance showroom software makes it easy for you to find the item from the scrambled part number, the real part number, barcode number, manufacturer's part number or other numbers that you may have).
