Purchasing and inter branch transfers
Through the integration to Sage 300 ERP(previously referred to as Accpac) inventory and purchase orders, Softline RMS may be configured to utilise a centralised or de-centralised stock environment. Each retailer works differently but the ability to allow stores to generate purchase orders allows branches to maintain suitable levels and send purchase requests to head office for ordering. These orders can be accumulated at Head Office and consolidated onto one purchase order with the option to drop ship at branch level saving time and money.
Other retailers look to centralise the function as the stock movement data is received from stores with Sage 300 ERP(previously referred to as Accpac) maintaining the optimum levels. This data is used in a seasonal or user defined purchasing model to ensure the stock projections are met based on historic sales, expected dates, quantity owing, minimum levels and projected required quantity moving forward.
PO Projections is a Single screen for stock ordering and the allocation of stock per location allowing for automatic creation of Purchase Orders and Inter Branch Transfers with complete drill down to sales history per item per store.
