Our supply chain management software includes purchase order processing which controls every step of the buying lifecycle from raising a new purchase order to issuing documentation, receipting and posting an invoice. Comprehensive enquiries can be used to view open purchase orders, see what has been submitted to suppliers and those that have been booked in for delivery. As all activity is time and date stamped, a suite of reports complement the workflow, detailing supplier delivery performance.
The forecasting module analyses sales and stock movements to predict future demand. Existing stock levels, commitments on-hand, capacity, minimum order quantities (MOQs) and lead-times are factored into algorithms that enable the software to suggest purchasing quantities and dates for buyer review. Often working on tens of thousands of SKUs, this process alone saves hours of administration every day.
Drop-ship or direct dispatch purchasing is supported by the platform which automatically raises purchase orders to mirror sales orders. You can track the status of each drop-ship for easy identification and expedition of late orders. Our supplier web portal connects your suppliers with purchasing information through an easy-to-use website. Using this facility, they can print delivery instructions, confirm dispatch and update purchase orders with comments or expected delivery dates.
