To help speed up the ordering process, you can assign par levels to each of your items.
Par levels represent the target amount of stock you want to have on hand after ordering from your suppliers. You can set this as individual units, or cases (if you have indicated a case size for the item).
Setting your par levels allows you to use the “Pre-fill” options when generating your orders. It looks at your current stock, and adds to the order whatever you need to reach the par level (minus any outstanding purchase orders).
If you have all of your par levels set, this allows you to generate your orders in seconds.
WISK Web Portal
To add or edit your par levels on the WISK Web Portal:
Go to the “Items” page. If adding pars, you can filter your items to only show those with Missing Par Levels by selecting from “Predefined filters”.
Note: You can also adjust your pars on the "Prepare Orders" page
In the “Your Par” column, type in the desired par level for the item (by default it is set to units but you can toggle it)
Click into another cell, and the Par Level saves
Note: If you want to switch your par from units to cases, hover your cursor over the par level and you'll see a button to make the switch.
It converts it to the appropriate amount of cases based on what was entered for full units. You can switch it back to units by clicking the button again.
Item Spreadsheet Upload
Alternatively, you can download a spreadsheet template of your items and add the par levels of each item, then upload it. Learn more:
To add or edit your par levels in the mobile app:
From the home screen, tap the “Items” Tab
Tap the view option at the top of the screen and tap "View par"
Beside each item, you’ll see the current par level. The default is 0 if a par hasn't been added yet. Use the “+” and “-” buttons to adjust the par, or tap the number in between to type a value and tap “Done”
The par updates to the set value
Par levels are set to "units" by default, but can be switched to cases if you swipe the item to the left and tap "Edit". Scroll down to "Par Level" and you can toggle between them.
After adding the par, tap "Save"
Your Par vs WISK Par
Over time, the system calculates a WISK Par, which is a recommendation based on your last 6 weeks of consumption data per item. Learn more:
