Creating Purchase Orders and Sales Orders Simultaneously...

The following example highlights a very special functionality:

Your sales representative is on the phone with a customer, who needs 20 widgets. The system shows that there are only 15 on-hand. The sales representative reserves the 15 on a sales order, and from the sales order he creates a purchase order for the remaining 5 widgets. Once the 5 arrive, the complete order of 20 can be delivered to the customer.

Filling stock needed for sales orders is made simple:

Purchase Orders for Sales Orders

  • Add the sales order items to existing purchase order(s).
  • Automatically generate a purchase order from a sales order.
  • Create multiple purchase orders at the same time if the items on the sales order are purchased from different vendors. You create a purchase order for each vendor, with items sourced from each vendor on each separate purchase order.

There are many additional sales/purchasing features of SIMMS 2014, however two of the most popular are:

Item Replenishment
