Xero provide no Inventory Release/ Shipped - when a Quote is converted to an Invoice the Item has been released.

Bi4Cloud Inventory can report on:

  • Stock (Inventory) On Hand (SOH) 
  • Stock (Inventory) On Order (PO Outstanding)
  • Committed Stock (Inventory) (Quote Outstanding)

The Committed Stock (Inventory) is determined from the outstanding Quotes.

Bi4Cloud has several Inventory reports including:

  • Inventory
  • Inventory vs Sales
  • Inventory Cover 

The Inventory Report shows Committed ( Orders / Quotes), On PO and calculates Available. These value are a static position and it does not take into account the sales velocities.


The Inventory Cover Report looks at Sales in the last 8 weeks and the last 20 weeks and provides an estimate of the weeks of cover before a stock-out. The two time periods used for analysis provide for fast moving ie an 8 weeks horizon or slower moving ie. a 20 week horizon.
