Essential Product Knowledge
The ‘Cycle Counting’ section of the V5 Control Center allows users to create scheduled cycle counts, or stock takes, for selected commodities. These are then processed using the WMS software.
This page provides a guide and column definitions for the ‘Cycle Counting’ window in Control Center. More information on scheduling and running cycle counts can be found in our ‘Cycle Counting’ module guide here.
The ‘Cycle Counting’ section can be found under the ‘Inventory’ header in Control Center.
