Inventory Management Software
We will have instant access to the current inventory levels of each product at each location. We can set re-order points to determine if a product needs to be ordered in a location. Re-order points are set at product level and they apply to a location level quantity (not total across all locations).
We can check inventory levels on the invoice to ensure that we can fulfill the sales orders.
Invoices and Purchase orders can be created on demand anytime by just typing the order number.
They can be customized to suit your needs. We can change the logo and the fields displayed easily.

- Discounts can be entered for each product on the order as well as order level discounts.
- Additional order charges such as shipping charges can be entered as well.
