Purchase Orders

IMS Purchase Orders enable your company to streamline your purchasing practices.

Purchase Order System

IMS Purchase Orders enable your company to streamline your purchasing practices. Streamlining will help your company save significant time and money, and is a vital component of a complete inventory management system for your catalog, website, or call center operations.

The Purchase Order module was designed to work directly with the IMS Inventory module. When inventory levels reach the reorder point, automatic purchase orders can be generated to bring on hand quantities back to a sufficient level as determined by your buyers or inventory managers. If reorder points and reorder quantities are not necessary, the user has the option of creating manual purchase orders as well.

When vendors are set up, they are assigned a default liability account and a default expense account. This aides in the bill posting process later.The bill posting screen and the purchase order screen are also linked so that when a bill has already been posted for a purchase order number the user will be alerted.

Purchase orders can also be opened directly from the sales screen with the ability to select vendors, enter comments, post items to inventory, and update last cost.Detailed reporting capabilities allow options to print purchase orders, receiving reports, price change reports, and returns.
