Lot and Serial Tracking

Business Central's out of the box lot and serial tracking capabilities are second to none. You can define when and for which transactions you need to track the serial numbers of a item that has been assigned a particular tracking profile.

A question that we see a lot of on internet forums is, can you apply both serial number and lot tracking to a particular item? The answer is yes, you can apply both serial number and lot tracking to a particular item in Business Central. Business Central also has in it's toolbox the ability to track the history of where a specific serial number or lot number was used and the ability to do forward and backward traces.

Quality Control

One of the beautiful things about Business Central is the ability to extend the out of the box functionality by downloading apps. This is a great feature because as we all know there are many businesses that are similar but no two businesses are the same.
