Time Saver for Distributor Orders
Earlier this year, we introduced a time saving feature to IVO that allows you to do a full PO stock check with STL at the click of a button.
The August 2015 update included an exciting enhancement that expands this capability to include Anchor, Ingram and New Day.
With the push of a button, BSMGR will do a stock check for each item on the open purchase order with the four companies listed above. In our office testing, it takes about a second per item to check each item with all these distributors. So, an order with 30 products should finish in just over half a minute.
The summary results show how many items each company can fulfill along with an approximate wholesale cost. You can also click a button to see a detailed report that lists all the items on the PO with how many you ordered, how many are in stock at that warehouse, the discount, retail price and estimated wholesale cost.
The stock check results are stored locally for an hour. So, if you are interrupted while doing the full stock check, you can restart it. The process will only stock check items that don’t have a count within the past hour.
Please let us know if you have any suggestions on how to improve this great new feature!
