Abel’s Country of Eligibility feature is for exporters of goods that are subject to strict quality standards, like pharmaceuticals, dairy, honey, and meat products.

It’s an area that can be set up to suit most requirements. Here we’ll focus on just the stock issue aspect: how you can classify a batch’s suitability for different export markets and how this helps in the issue process.

In Abel you can configure the countries or groups of countries (like the EU) that are significant for your operation. When you create batches of new stock, you can specify the eligible countries / groups for each batch of sensitive stock.

This example shows how you can select the countries and / or groups of countries that a batch is suitable for.

You can also set up colour rules. The colours help your team quickly see which batches are eligible or not eligible for countries or groups of countries. Colour coding makes it easier to select suitable batches when issuing stock. And (equally important) avoid issuing batches that exceed standards and so are best kept for stricter countries.

Abel’s stock issue screens colour-code the available batches. This helps your team to choose the most suitable batches.

This example shows a stock issue screen – in this example, the red batches are NOT eligible for the European Union.

Abel’s container screen also shows colour-coded batches. This means your team can easily see that all batches allocated to the container are suitable for the export country.

In this example, red means the batches are NOT eligible for the European Union – but that’s OK because this container is going to San Francisco.
