Inform ERP's purchasing order workflow begins with the vendor configuration you performed in Configure vendor's default purchasing options. From there, Inform continuously monitors your inventory and order history and updates the recommended Reorder Quantity in real-time.
Using in-depth forecasts, Inform ERP generates a suggested Reorder Quantity based on a specified number of weeks of inventory to order. This reorder quantity appears on the Projected Purchase Order, which displays a summary of all vendors where a purchase is recommended to fulfill expected demand.
Product purchase quantities generated from a forecast can be added onto POs made for the same vendor used in requisitions or placed onto a new PO. You can then identify your immediate needs, place those items onto a PO, and then add on what is needed for stock once you run the forecast.
You may also need to Create special orders and requests for a product that is unavailable or backordered. These requests can include internal comments, which facilitate communication between departments.
Finally, confirm the expected delivery date with the vendor and specify that on the Inform ERP Delivery Confirmation. page, which provides arrival dates when looking up inventory. You can adjust pricing during this time to minimize or eliminate discrepancies that may occur during receiving.
