Exact for Wholesale Distribution / Manufacturing – Improvements to the stock positions overview

Written by Pieter Hamans on . Posted in Exact Online

Sales people who receive an inquiry on the availability of a product are often also asked the product price. It is therefore practical if this data is available in the same overview. If they want to provide an overview to their customers of availability and price, they are asked to include the (EAN-13) barcode in the report. We have recently extended the stock positions report with the required fields.

Exact for Manufacturing – Print the shipping method on the shop paper

Written by Pieter Hamans on . Posted in Exact Online

When the shop order is readied for delivery one would typically need to know how the product will be shipped. Will the customer collect the shipment? Is it going to be collected by DHL? Is there a transporter that collects the pallets? The field shipping method is meant for instructions for the delivery. We can enter it already in the quotation and sales order, and we can print it on the quotation form and sales order confirmation, but we prefer not to distribute commercial documents to the shop floor. We can now also print the shipping method on the shop paper.

Exact for Manufacturing / Wholesale Distribution – Maintaining documents linked to serial and batch number items

Written by Pieter Hamans on . Posted in Exact Online

We may assign a serial or batch number to items that we want to specifically identify. Reasons for assigning serial or batch numbers could be differences in composition or quality, to trace the origin of materials used, the delivery to specific customers or to maintain a service history. We can now also link documents to serial and batch number items to better comply with legislation and quality management standards.

Exact for Manufacturing / Wholesale Distribution – Payment condition in the goods delivery overview

Written by Pieter Hamans on . Posted in Exact Online

Sometimes making a goods delivery is dependent on the receipt of a prepayment. And sometimes, it is important when preparing a goods delivery to know whether the customer will pay upon collecting his order at the front desk, or that a courier has to collect cash on delivery. Recently we enhanced the goods delivery overview with the possibility to show the payment condition. This enhancement is for all editions of Exact for Wholesale Distribution and Manufacturing.

Exact for Manufacturing – Goods receipts for linked shop order materials

Written by Pieter Hamans on . Posted in Exact Online

When we purchase materials for shop orders we can apply either one of two available methods: we purchase based on the total demand and the current available stock, or we link the purchase to specific shop orders. In the second case, each receipt should be allocated to the respective shop order(s). A recent enhancement makes it easier to identify to which shop orders we should allocate the receipts.
