Matrix Table Overview
The Sapphire Matrix Table tool is an extremely useful tool for managing inventory matrix based items, and gives the SapphireOne user, a graphical representation of the current stock levels of all inventory items listed within the matrix. The SapphireOne user is also able to view all inventory items and quantities in various locations.
The Sapphire Matrix Table Tool enables the user to check the levels of inventory items or stock in a graphical size-colour-style display, which we refer to as a Matrix Table. This gives the SapphireOne user the ability to select an inventory item and then search the Matrix Table to find if that particular item is listed within and view the internal Size, Colour and Style of that inventory item, as well as the current stock quantities of each Size, Colour and Style of inventory item.
For example, you may own a retail brand that sells fashion items such as clothing, shoes and accessories, and you use a Matrix Table to manage your inventory across multiple store locations as well as online. You may have a customer who wants to purchase a particular garment in a specific colour and size but it is not currently in stock at that store location.
The SapphireOne user can then utilise the Matrix Table tool to search for that specific inventory item (size, colour) within the Matrix Table and view whether that inventory item is in stock and what it’s current stock level is, and if it is in stock, which locations it is available in i.e. another store location, warehouse, etc.
