Stay on top of your stock
proALPHA ERP provides different valuation rates so you can valuate your stock as required. For your own products, you can use freely definable valuation schemes that are based on national and international standards.
proALPHA maps the complete stock on hand, changes in stock, and material consumptions in the ERP modules, thereby ensuring that accounting and controlling are always up-to-date. It also establishes a synchronized quantity and value flow throughout your company. If required, you can first simulate the impact on the balance sheet with the ERP software before the valuations are finally transmitted to accounting.
