Just as any motor or other machine working with different parts needs regular maintenance to continue running smoothly, CheckMate also needs to be regularly maintained. The tools to maintain the integrity of your database are called Reindex and Cleanup.
Lock the System- you must do this before using any of the tools. When you lock the system, no other users may use CheckMate until you have it unlocked again. To lock the system, click on Utilities, then Lock. The words ‘System Locked’ should appear in the upper right corner of your Main Window. Now you may Reindex or Cleanup.
The index files control the sequencing of your data. For instance…

YOU WILL WANT TO REINDEX.
Reindex Stock Records (CONT.)
Cleanup deleted records?

Unit of Issue is the usual number of items that you issue for the specific part. CheckMate will auto-suggest this number as a quantity whenever you issue this item.
Case Size is the usual number of items that come in one case when you receive a shipment of this item. CheckMate will auto-suggest the number you put here as a multiplier whenever you receive this item.
Standard Storage is the usual place where you store this part. When you receive a shipment of items CheckMate will automatically place this storage location in the storage field for the new item.
Qty In is the number of items you have in stock at the moment. This number will change automatically when you receive or issue an item.
Target is the optimal number of items to have on hand. When you reorder, CheckMate will suggest that you reorder enough items to get you back up to the target level.
Reorder Point is the point at which you need to order more items. If the quantity gets lower than this, you need to reorder.
Critical is the least number of items you may have on hand. When you run a critical report CheckMate will check if any items have quantities that are below critical level. It will then show these to you so you know which items need to reorder first.
On Order is the number of parts you have on order but have not yet received. The number of parts you receive from an order will automatically be deducted here.
Price is the amount of money you sell this part for, or what a customer pays when you issue him this part.
