VISUAL Enterprise includes a powerful purchase order software solution, which allows you to easily coordinate material purchases by providing online decision support that simplifies record keeping. The Purchasing functionality of VISUAL Enterprise helps you maintain control of inventory to enhance your company’s cash flow and shorten delivery times. VISUAL Enterprise handles all types of purchases, including inventoried items, supply items, outside service operations pertaining to a manufacturing order, and subcontracted items that require components to be sent to the vendor. The purchase order software allows for drop shipments, which can include specific locations other than the primary ship-to address, such as various warehouses or vendor locations. VISUAL Enterprise’s purchasing module provides standard form reports such as purchase orders, acknowledgements, and order lists for purchasing personnel, as well as analytical accounts payable-related reports, including purchase order lists and accrual reports.
VISUAL Enterprise’s Purchase Order software component also supports the creation and use of vendor RFQs. An RFQ (Request for Quote) allows you to request, obtain, and record quotations on parts you need to fulfill a customer order. Vendor RFQ Entry also allows you to list quantities for a quote for one or more quantities.
Use the Purchasing functionality of VISUAL Enterprise to enter purchase orders, order receipts, and purchase returns in real-time, then let VISUAL automatically calculate the adjustments to Purchase Orders. When you purchase materials, you can issue them, by line or complete order, directly to a job without the need to assign internal part numbers. Upon receipt, you can issue the materials immediately to a work order, when purchased directly to a specific job.
