Purchase Order Software

Having purchase order software features built into your inventory management system offers a simple way to integrate and automate a vital component of inventory control.

Your purchase orders initiate the process of buying raw materials from your vendors according to a predetermined agreement regarding pricing, volumes, and lead time. They will define payment terms, delivery, etc. In SOS Inventory software, they will synchronize with your QuickBooks Online account as non-posting transactions.

Generating a purchase order is a redundant action that can easily be streamlined with SOS Inventory, saving your team time, and ensuring greater accuracy in inventory quantities and costs.

A purchase order can be triggered by a sales order or manually created to suit the needs of your business. You may generate purchase orders when products reach reorder points. SOS Inventory let you recalculate your reorder points automatically on a weekly basis based on historical data to determine the optimal quantity to reorder to meet demand.

You can also use blanket orders to place orders for items at an agreed price, no matter the quantity ordered.

You can generate a pdf based on a template of your choosing and send to any emails in your address list. If you wish to enable approvals prior to sending out purchase orders, you may do so from the settings menu. Users who have been designated the proper permissions to give approvals will be the only individuals able to do so.

When you mark items as received, the purchase order will close and generate a customer invoice from the details indicated on the purchase order. Purchase order inventory management software features are built in to the SOS Inventory software platform.
