You can return items that need repair, inspection, routine maintenance, etc. after use to a To Be Serviced node. You can then create Service Tickets and charge the associated costs to service the product to the Job Site. Quantify deducts the consumable items used during servicing from the branch consumable stock, thus maintaining an accurate inventory of these items.
You can move items from Out of Service to To Be Serviced and vice versa. Refer to Working with To Be Serviced Inventory and for more information on the To Be Serviced option.
