This feature aims to reduce time spent on re-ordering stock by allowing etailers to manage their suppliers in one central system. It can be used to create, edit and manage a list of suppliers (including contact details) on a store's admin system, and generate purchase orders for each supplier as required. Using the feature, it's also possible to:
• Assign products to each supplier (via a 'Suppliers' tab on the Edit Product screen)
• Generate purchase orders (with unique reference nos) for each supplier, which can be used to
re-order products they're associated with via the admin system
• Choose to send purchase orders directly from the admin system to suppliers, or download to
send via an alternative method
• Enter number of items received on each purchase order, which automatically updates relevant stock totals (where all items have been received, the purchase order will automatically be set to 'Status').
On request, we can also enable the feature to automatically create a purchase order for a supplier (or add to an existing, unsent purchase order) when an order is placed for an item that's out of stock.
