Purchase Orders have several inputs to create “Line Details” on the PO.

  • 1. A “Suggested Re-order” sub-system uses the Re-Order points and Re-Order Quantities to create a “Suggested” Requirement. The user may alter this information before creating a real Purchase Order.
  • 2. Both the “Point-of-Sale” and “Service” modules allow the user to add a “Line Detail” on an open PO that will track the Customer#, Sales# / Repair Order# on PO for “Receiving” purposes and flags the origin with the PO. (Note: When the inventory is received, the user may print labels that identify the inventory for a Customer or Repair Order).
  • 3. Purchase Orders may be “Manually” created.
  • Purchase Orders are tracked by “Status” (New, Printed, Released, Received, Complete).
  • Purchase Orders are interfaced to Vendor’s system (where allowed such as Mercury, OMC, Barley, Kimpex, etc. – this list is constantly growing as Vendors make this option available).
  • Purchase Orders may be “Partial” received.


  • Automatic conversions for Purchased Unit of measure to Inventory Unit of Measure.
  • Uses “Origin Cost” (if available) and Import Costing Matrix.
  • "Available stock" popup (Includes multiple Locations, “On Order” quantities.
  • Find Inventory quickly using Bar Codes and Scanner, “Lookup Groups/Subgroups”, by Description or by Vendor.
  • Track Serial numbers for selected Inventory Items (Item is flagged as “Full Tracking”).
  • Bar Code generator (Built-in) allows printing of “User Defined” Bar Code Labels (for Received Inventory) directly from the Purchase Order.
  • Special Sales Back Order Release function linked to PO Receiving function. Allows the user to select which Back Orders are filled from the received PO.
  • Purchase Order Lookups by Sales#, by Project#, by Repair Order# (Service), by Work Order# (Manufacturing), by Item# and Item History).


  • Most reports are available by Purchase Order# or Item# ranges with additional filters (such as Vendor# and Received Date).
