Stock requests are a useful transaction that allows the handheld user to raise a request for stock to the Mobileezy administrator.  Stock requests can be raised on a regular basis using stock templates, enabling the implementation of a fast and efficient stock replenishment process.  Using the email feature, the stock request can be sent to any desired email address.

Stock requests are raised on the Mobileezy Handheld App and are used for requesting replenishment of van or warehouse stocks.
