Sage 50 Add-On – Back to Back Ordering
This is the second in my series of blog posts highlighting add-on products which tackle regularly requested extra functionality to improve your Sage 50 experience.
Many companies don’t keep stock of the items they sell, but take orders but then arrange for the goods to be shipped direct to the customer when an order is received. I had a request to allow a sales order to be taken in Sage, but then to create a purchase order from it to send to the supplier, with pertinent information transferred from the sales order to the purchase order. Creating these purchase orders manually can cause room for errors and feels like duplication.
The Adept Back to Back Ordering program allows you to select from a list of sales orders or sales invoices and create the purchase orders needed to satisfy the customer’s requirements. The customer’s delivery address is carried over seamlessly and then the sales order or invoice is marked as ‘processed’, to prevent attempts to process the same order twice.
This prevents the need for manual duplication and keying in errors, and if a product is always purchased from the same supplier you can indicate this, with the preferred suppliers being listed on product codes.
The program works with Sage 50 Pro and Financial Controller versions 8 to 18 (2012) and costs £199 + VAT for a company-wide license. To take a look for yourself then request a free trial of the software.
