In the wholesale distribution and manufacturing industries, space and time are money. Therefore it is essential to have tight control of stock levels, orders and locations.
To ensure efficiency levels are high, staff need transparent access to data across the system, so that informed up to the minute decisions can be made. There is no point having stock arrive a day after the customer wants it, or having insufficient stock to meet established customer demand.
The QX purchasing suite allows you to track sales trends and stock levels, minimising stock liabilities while maximising profit. By careful use of stock coding, analysis can be made to vary stock levels according to the availability and usage of each product. The QX purchase proposal option is able to calculate your stock requirements and recommend the best buying solution.
Openda allows the allocation of expected stock to be allocated to sales orders, covering demand and preventing stock misallocation. Tight controls prevent the allocated of any back-to-back items being removed without the Purchase Department’s prior approval.
The Purchasing universal access module (UAM) allows up to the minute interrogation of customer orders, ensuring seamless fulfillment of demand. This ability gives you the confidence to place purchase orders for the desired quantity at the best price available.
Both supplier standard and discounted rates can be held for ease of purchasing along with supplier item codes, minimum order quantities, lead times and units of measure. All designed to reduce the margin for error.
