Reporting the quantities produced in a certain period is a need in many companies. The Status overview | Shop orders does show a quantity produced, but this is a quantity throughout all time.

Exact for Manufacturing Ease of Use: Warehouse transfer advice to inventory holding subcontractors

Written by Pieter Hamans on . Posted in Exact Online


In 2016 we released functionality to transfer inventory from our main warehouse to the warehouse of the subcontractor or to the distribution center. This transfer advice was designed to transfer the quantity of the planned shortage on that warehouse, i.e. not one pallet extra. The modern supply chain increasingly involves partners that work with consignments of our inventory. A recent enhancement supports transfer advice to inventory holding subcontractors.

Developers of third-party purchase invoice handling apps help their customers to scan and digitally process supplier invoices. Recently a new endpoint was created to facilitate these apps to directly create purchase invoices in Exact Online.

What’s new?
We further enriched this new REST API endpoint for purchase invoice lines – enabling users of these third-party apps to match a purchase invoice line to the relevant project and budgeted expense in Exact for Project Management. If applicable, they can also specify whether this invoice line needs to be re-billed automatically to your customer.

Your employees can enter leave requests themselves and easily track accrued leave balances.

As a Wholesale Distributor you do everything to keep your customers happy. Apart from knowing their needs, regular contact moments and providing suggestions to improve their business, you want to make sure to deliver as promised at all times.

At the same time investing in stock is expensive, predicting stock levels in the future is hard to do and your suppliers might not always deliver in time. It is business critical to know when a Sales order cannot be delivered in time or in full! This so you can act before your customer is facing a late receipt.
