Introduction

Ideal stock days are the length of time you want to have items in stock before needing to place an order. Ideal stock days are important because they’re used to calculate WISK Par.

WISK Par recommends the amount of each item you should order to have enough stock to last the ideal stock days, based on the rate of consumption from your previous 6 weeks of data. Learn more:

You can set ideal stock days at both the venue, or distributor level.

When suggesting the amount to order, it will go by the venue level unless it has been specified for the distributor.

  • For Beverage-focused accounts (WISK Bar), your ideal stock days are set to 14 days by default for the venue and all distributors.

  • For Food-focused accounts (WISK Restaurant), your ideal stock days are set to 7 days by default for the venue and all distributors.
