Inventory Items

Inventory Items in REV23 Desktop represent sellable and disposable items in your studio. The REV23 Desktop Inventory system is unmatched by competitors for how specific it is to our industry. Along with real time inventory tracking, automated bulk discounts and more, REV23 Desktop includes powerful options to associate items to specific service types, allowing full control on how to automate inventory when dealing with particular procedures. For example, discounting a piece of jewelry because it was done with a particular piercing type, including free aftercare that is automatically added (and discounted) on the sale during particular service types, or even reducing your disposables (gloves, needles, tubes, etc…), after completing a service.


Name: The name of the inventory item. The name is required, and should be descriptive as this will be the main identifier of the item in REV23 Desktop and printed on sale receipts.

Category: The inventory category of this item. The category is required. Categories are used mostly for organization of your items for quick access.

If you leave the inventory item name blank, after setting the jewelry item specifications a name will be automatically generated for you.

This is particularly useful for jewelry.
