One of the keys to a healthy order book is customer satisfaction
that is achieved by the supply of correct products, delivered on time and to
the correct locations. Balanced against this the company's need to maintain
tight credit control and an optimum inventory level.
Century's Order Entry is an excellent vehicle for the control
and management of customer orders. It provides the expected range of facilities,
from seamless integration with other Century modules, to the provision of back
orders, blanket orders, picking slips, delivery dockets...
What does it do?
Century's Order Entry module allows automatic integration
to Stock Control, Accounts Receivable and to General Ledger. Companies can share
or have exclusive use or nominated warehouses.
Firm, alternative product and cancelled order categories are catered for, as
are cash sale orders. Orders may be processed through standard processing and
delivery facilities with picking slips, delivery dockets and invoices produced
automatically. Facilities for prompt and urgent orders are also provided.
Comprehensive pricing facilities allow users to define unlimited
quantity breaks by product or product group and client. Prices and credit limits
may be overridden at order entry stage subject to password control.
Inquiry during order entry includes alternative suppliers, stock details, stock
serial numbers, transaction statistics, stock status and alternative stock.
The order book status is user selectable by product or product
groupings, by period, progressive and movement by nominated periods by warehouse
and by client. Orders invoiced or cancelled by order type, number and value
are also tracked.
Transaction inquiries are provided for any nominated account
for any year and includes complete transaction drill down and drill across to
transaction sources whether these are within Order Entry or other module. Of
course comprehensive audit trails or order transactions are maintained for each
warehouse, product and client.
Transaction history can be held for any number of periods
to facilitate reporting. The module's open design means that period and year
end rolls ups of values still allow historical reconstruction. This structure
ensures that all reports can be run for any period, current, past or future
and for any period.
