The surest ways to lose customers is to back order items. But to maximize your financial resources, you probably don’t want to keep more of an item on hand than you actually sell! i2i has integrated purchasing functions that help you to establish the best inventory levels for each stock item.
Whether you purchase an item from one supplier or one hundred, and no matter how many different quantity price or discount levels you need, i2i’s flexible buying information table handles it all! Just imagine having the ability to set up special pricing in unlimited multiples for an unlimited number of suppliers. With i2i you’ll always be able to purchase at the best price that’s real buying power.
One Single Purchasing Function Handles Everything!
Purchasing is an information intensive job. And, the more precise the information, the faster and more accurate the job becomes! i2i makes the best use of your time at your computer by combining the reports you need to make your purchasing decisions with the actual purchasing process. Select to display a list of all of your products that have reached their defined low level amount. Then, just point & click those products that you want to actually purchase from the list. If low level isn’t the way you need to do your purchasing, i2i lets you define your own list how about a list of all those products that you purchase from a particular supplier, or a list of products that you can purchase with a group discount. i2i automatically shows you how much of the product you bought the last time you purchased it and from whom you purchased it.
Print and Track Purchase Orders
Once you’ve made your purchases, printing, faxing, or e-mailing purchase orders for each supplier is just a mouse click away. i2i automatically includes the correct buying level pricing as well as any particular supplier terms or special discounts. And, you can quickly spot check your undelivered purchases to determine which suppliers are not filling your orders on time!
And, Even if You Do Have Back Orders
When your supplier delivers the product to you, just select the corresponding purchase order and record the actual amount delivered. If you do have back orders for a product at the time that you record delivery from your supplier, i2i resolves any back orders for the product for you, starting with the oldest back order in the system.
