How to do full inventory count with current back orders?
So here's my pickle. We do quarterly inventory counts of our entire warehouse. The issue is that we have a regular influx of POs coming in that fulfill backorders (skus that inventory have gone negative). So, we'll sell an item past 0 because we have such a quick turnaround from our vendors that our back orders get fulfilled fairly quickly.
The issue arises when we do an inventory count. The inventory count will 0 all inventory first before adding the new inventory. This will then mess up the POs we have coming in that will fulfill the back orders.
Does anyone have a solution to this issue? I need to keep track of the backorders that we need to fulfill while also counting everything and getting the inventory on track. I'm not sure if I need to do two different processes or a certain order of things.
We cannot stop the ordering or avoid the overselling and fulfilling back orders.
I'd love some input on this!
