Rapid master file entry
Create master files on the fly. During order entry, access to all master files relating to the sales order allows you to add new files without exiting the current function. Shortcuts to these files save valuable time during data entry.
The wizard will generate purchasing suggestions based on the filters you select. Filter by supplier, part, job, date or inventory class. Select the items or services that require purchasing and M1 will create the purchase orders automatically
Raw material purchases
Purchase your raw materials directly to the job, bypassing inventory altogether.
RMA Management allows you to process return authorizations and claims from your customers.
Create manual purchase orders for miscellaneous items such as office suppliers and services. Cost them directly to the correct general ledger accounts.
Create additional purchase orders for unplanned materials on a job. Avoid unnecessary interruptions to job planning by adding unplanned purchases directly to the job.
Back orders are automatically created for partially received purchase order lines. Track all outstanding orders, including backorders, with the Open PO report.
Receipt Management allows you to better manage PO receipts, particularly for partial deliveries or multiple deliveries. Individual deliveries can have information such as the supplier’s delivery docket number as well as freight charges for the delivery. Multiple POs can be received on one delivery. This allows accurate reporting on the value of goods received instead of the value of goods invoiced.
