Sublocation Management for Precise Inventory Control
If you need more granular visibility within a warehouse, Finale has the ability to create sublocations to allow accurate stock counts within a subset of the warehouse. Common naming conventions for sublocations include bin locations, aisles, or pallet spaces. For example, within Finale, you would quickly know you have a total of 6 pairs of jeans at the Reno warehouse with 4 pairs located in bin A1-1 and 2 located in bin D4-1.
Receive and Pick Inventory Per Location
With multi-warehouse inventory management support, you can quickly decide which warehouse will receive in a PO shipment.

”Finale is so versatile that we can improvise anything. another powerful tool I've found was "sub-locations". the guys behind Finale must be genius. i wasn't aware of the power of this tool. About a year ago, i came up with an idea of organizing our warehouses in sections or zones and tagging each location. However, I had to put a hold on that idea halfway through since i didn't have a tool to track inventory going in and out of those locations. Finally, I am able to put pieces together with Finale coming to rescue. I found sub-locations together with their barcode scanners extremely powerful organizing our warehouses. Now i can track every single item i buy and sell and know exactly how many i have in stock. Doing a physical inventory was a nightmare before but now it is a snap with Finale. I am still exploring with Finale but i have a full confidence in Finale management team that anything is possible with Finale.”

Simple & Powerful
”It's everything you need an inventory software to do simply and easily without bloat or unnecessary features. Finale integrates seamlessly with all our sales channels and works perfectly all the time. We have multiple warehouses. Before Finale, I used to have to manually update this inventory from multiple spreadsheets...it took about 4 hours every week. Now the same exact task takes me about 4 minutes and I do it daily. We are have increased accuracy with less work. The single best feature about Finale is the product lookups that allow you to match multiple sku variations to one primary sku. ”
