You can use a serial number to keep track of specific items, by adding a serial number for each item. After scanning the item into the POS screen, you will be required to enter the serial number of the appropriate item. You can also directly scan serial number into Sku box when selling. Once the item is sold, the POS will keep track of the serialized items that are sold along with the ones still in the system.
