Do you resell products purchased from other vendors or drop-shippers? The Purchasing Module was designed to streamline the process of placing orders with your vendors, receiving the merchandise into stock upon arrival without manual keying, and expediting drop-ship orders to your customers.
Using the Purchasing Module will enhance your inventory management by keeping track of how many units you have on order and when they are expected to arrive which is critical information to know in three scenarios: when placing new purchase orders; in Order Entry so that operators can see when a backordered item is expected to become available; and on your website where you can show an anticipated availability date or even control if shoppers are able to order an item. Receiving merchandise into CMS using the Purchasing Module could not be easier. You are able to track accurate product costs, complete with any landed costs, and monitor changes in cost from lot to lot. Save keyboarding time, reduce inventory errors, and monitor your bottom line – all at the same time.
For drop shippers, CMS will automatically create a PO for your vendor when an order is placed for a drop-shipped item. When you receive notification from the vendor that the item has shipped, you can close the PO which will update the shipped date on the order, add a tracking number, and can trigger an emailed shipment confirmation to your customer that includes the tracking number. This is all done in setup, and once done is hassle-free. Setups can be modified as necessary. Read more here:
