Terms and Abbreviations

  1. SH5 - StoreHouse version 5, otherwise called a Storehouse or just System;
  2. DB - database


The SH5 system allows you to automate production management, manage cost, organize purchases and monitor the actions of personnel. It can be integrated with r_keeper and 1C.
The calculation of the cost price and the goods write-off in SH5 is performed using the FIFO (First-In-First-Out) method. The method is based on the First-In-First-Out principle: the goods received first at the warehouse will be consumed first, the goods received second will be consumed second, and so on. The goods are written off in SH5 on the basis of requests that are generated manually or imported from r_keeper.

The SH5 system consists of a server and a client part.

System Options

  • Full accounting in a single database for any configuration of your business: from a small restaurant to a complex combination of legal entities, divisions, and departments
  • Ability to set up various accounting units for the same product in documents of different types
  • Automated document flow, from selling finished goods at the cash register to ordering raw materials from a supplier
  • All cooking options in one cost card. Production from raw materials in a factory-kitchen or finishing in a restaurant from semi-finished products — all options are taken into account in one place
  • Automatic goods write-off at the day end in r_keeper
  • Most complete accounting of surpluses and shortages that can be tracked down to the source documents, constant control of variances
  • Process of goods acceptance and transfer from one warehouse to another with a confirmation on the receiving side helps the user to formalize the employees' financial liability
  • Warehouse inventory not only by actual availability of remaining raw products but also by remaining prepared dishes and semi-finished products with cost card synchronizing.
