Here is a very brief outline of some of the capabilities of our Order-Processing application:
Collects inventory items into open orders for customers set up in accounts receivables; saves these, then receives
shipment information, prints invoices and other documents, and processes the results into accounts-receivable invoices
and inventory sale transactions.
- Efficient entry of new orders (select customer; key stock number and quantity and press Enter;
repeat until done)
- Double windows for editing; order lines in one grid, order-wide information (addresses and so on) in a
- Best of both: Batch processing for efficiency and accuracy; selectivity to make it easy to process
- Customer settings for accepting backorders and other options
- Select items and/or prices from customer sales history
- Customer credit limits and warnings when you're about to exceed them
Reports and Documents
- Open-Orders List
- Sales History List (items sold by customer)
- Customer documents. . .
- Order Acknowledgements
- Picking Lists
- Packing Lists
- Up to nine custom-format documents; type-set quality (eliminates pre-printed forms); see sample below
- Sales History List, sales by item by customer
This is the window you use for entering shipped quantities and
other editing of order lines
Note that the columns are arranged about like an invoice. Editing the order is as easy as changing the cells of a spreadsheet.
As you change quantities or amounts, all the extensions appear instantly.
Here's the window in which you work with order-wide
such as the addresses, discounts, sales taxes, and so on.
Both of these windows are open as you work with orders; you can switch back and forth, depending on what you need to do.
When you print invoices, the default settings are to print all
those that haven't been.
But, you can easily just check off the ones you want. And, you can click radio buttons at the top of the window to change
the way it groups orders.
You can also press a key combination from either of the main order-editing windows (see above) to print an invoice for that order.
The window from which you process orders includes the same flexibility.
Again, it defaults to processing all the invoiced orders. Just click OK if that's what you want to do.
Or, check off the invoices you want to process. It's as simple as that.
Here's a sample of a printed invoice.
Note how it includes the company logo and is virtually typeset, eliminating pre-printed forms. We can pretty much
duplicate any form you have.
Our Order-Processing application is the most custom of our general-purpose software. In fact, each is unique
for each customer. (There is no single downloadable update for Orders on this site. If you select Help>Internet Support>Updates
in one of our Orders applications, the download is unique for you.) This application is actually a template with an unlimited number
of variations. On the other hand, if one customer comes up with a function that would apply to others, we automatically pass it on
to them too. In this way, each customer gets the best of both: as much unique customization as they like -- and any ideas that
arise in other installations.
These are just some highlights. There's much more to this application. Please give us a call, and we can review the details.
