So now you have the stock, our Product core module collection provides you with everything you need to manage and maintain all aspects of your product data.
Product Information Management (PIM)
So, now you have products, a full stockroom or warehouse, but now how do you get the products out in front of your customers online or in-store? You need a system to hold all that important product data, from SKUs, codes, barcodes and labels to product descriptions, images and all-important SEO data. The Product Information Management module is one of the core functions of Sparkstone Backoffice and gives you everything you need to stay on top of your products and ranges.
FIFO (First-In, First-Out)
FIFO, is an asset-management and valuation method in which assets produced or acquired first are sold, used, or disposed of first. At Sparkstone we understand how important FIFO is to retailers, especially at a time where prices and costs are in constant flux. Our platform had a range of features to track stock movements and price changes, ensuring accurate asset valuations ready for your accounts at the click of a button.
Sales Price Management
Standard tools to manage your sales prices responsively and intuitively. Bulk edit/update tools, time limited pricing and logical calculations mean that maintaining competitive prices without sacrificing margin has never been easier.
As with all businesses, tracking stocked item price/costs may not be enough. On our platform we cater for a range of non-stock items including; service sales, carriage, packing, insurance and delivery costs, storage fees, warranties. All of which – and more – can all be handled with ease and without setting up dummy stock records.
If you’re into fashion then the stock matrix module gives you an unbelievable array of benefits to make your business easier to run and drive profitability – it improves control and puts you firmly in the driving seat.
The matrix module allows you to sub-divide a stock code into an unlimited number of variants in up to 5 axes simultaneously.

The number one reason for not making a retail sale is not having the item in stock – if a customer can’t see what they want then they simply don’t give you a second chance. Yet, one of the main reasons for going bust is tying up too much money in the wrong stock – it seems so obvious … in hindsight.
