I am looking for a tool to provide me with a simple report of which items have been in inventory the longest.
Does this currently exist?
Out of curiosity, do you subscribe to Lightspeed Analytics? There are quite a few reports in there, and all of them can be customized as well.
As @gregarican said, Lightspeed Analytics has a lot of reports that can help you with that:
I am certainly a little disappointed to discover this is not a standard base level function like most POS.
Yup agreed, it should be a standard report especially as Analytics is actually so expensive because you have to buy a license for each location. I don't need all the reports so you'd think it would have the basic ones like this standard.
Agree that an Aging Report should be part of the standard package. It was part of my last POS software.
I'm just now discovering that the age of inventory is not a standard report. How can LightSpeed claim to be a high quality POS without this as a standard feature?
Yes, this is part of making the case for just paying more for a more fully featured POS instead of paying for extra addons to close functional gaps. I agree operational retail reporting should be base. Personally, I have made some good progress using PowerBI against extracts of data (pulled with the API) and building my own reports.
