With comprehensive purchasing, sales and inventory management, the Supply Chain Management (SCM)
application tracks sales orders, purchase orders, products, warehouses, customers, suppliers and carriers.
Products can have relationships to one another and the attributes of that relationship are determined by the product type (simple, build, base, non-stocked).
Build products with components have a bill of materials to allow for basic production-level stock management. Whilst base products with variants are an efficient way to quickly create products with many variants.
Orders are created to initiate the movement of stock between suppliers, customers and warehouses.
Order grouping allows for a single order to contain multiple order groups. Whilst the customer and generic order details are stored at an order level, the order groups within the order can have different dates and delivery locations alongside the products listed in that order group.
Inventory control helps you find the right balance between sales potential and purchased stock, avoiding excess and shortages that can hurt your bottom line.
Every stock movement is recorded, helping to quickly identify actual stock on hand at a bin level (within a warehouse). You can then generate transfers between warehouses to fulfill orders and efficiently utilise the stock on hand in multiple warehouses.
Dispatches and receipts are automatically generated on approval of their relevant orders (sales orders, purchase orders and transfers).
Warehouse management procedures then allow for the scheduling, picking, packing and delivery of dispatches, as well as the processing of inbound receipts.
A consignment is a delivery of one or more packages from one place to another. The consignment note is used by carriers to identify which packages are to be delivered to the same place.
Consignments can have multiple dispatches and dispatches can have multiple packages. Each package in the consignment is then given a number out of the total number of packages in the consignment.
