Freeze Inventory

Freeze Inventory

Application Overview


The Freeze Inventory application allows the user to freeze inventory levels as of a certain date usually the end of the period.  This allows the company to continue doing business while still being able to go back and analyze inventory levels and values as of the freeze date.


If on-line transaction processing is being used, frozen inventory levels will not be updated when new transactions are entered.


The Frozen Stock Status Report allows the user to print out information about inventory as of the freeze date.
