Sales Orders

Sales Order management is possibly the greatest area of variation for different industry sectors and consequently comprises numerous order entry procedures, one or more of which should conform to your business requirements.


The various sales order entry procedures comprise simple order entry, combined entry & shipment cash or day sale, telesales and inventory transfer (sale or return).


One common feature, however, may be the Sales Order List Window, that provides a review of current and past sales orders and user access to related sales order procedures.


Amongst the latter are proforma payment request, order shipment, shipment inventory tracing and customer invoice matching.


Sales order history is easily reviewed using the "filtering" options, a common Orbitall feature, available on the Sales Order List Window through which content can be restricted to a combination of criteria including order date range, order status as well as various attributes such as individual customer or that that include a particular product.


Customer Returns (Credits) are raised by reference to previous shipments and the underlying database design reflects a premise that a sales order may have multiple shipments, which in turn may have multiple customer returns.


Sales order shipments and customer returns are reflected in the inventory audit trail for individual products and shipment activities are fundamentally involved in the provision of one-step forward and backward traceability if that is an issue for your business.
