      This Might Be Really Basic - Vending Inventory and Machine Management

      Post

      So I just got into the vending machine biz and have used Filemaker to manage my DJ business for years. But is there a good, basic, inventory control template that will allow me to manage sales of product by machine? I guess each machine is a "customer" and I want to track how many candy bars or sodas or whatever go through each machine. I also want to be alerted when supplies of certain inventory get close to low because my suppliers of certain products are three hours away and I want to plan those trips very carefully. 

      Am I dense, or is the basic inventory database just a basic listing of the stuff? Maybe I'm lazy, but for the price you'd think FileMaker would include a complete inventory management system or have one on the web site. 

      And if they do, I wish I could find it.
