AddonSoftware for Distributors fully integrates with the General Accounting bundle which is required, and the Manufacturing bundle.

Inventory Control

At the heart of any distribution system is inventory control. The key to success for many distributors is the ability to control inventory while at the same time maintaining a high level of customer service. That is the purpose of the AddonSoftware Inventory Control application. It provides accurate, current information to help you keep stock levels low enough to minimize costs, yet high enough to achieve your customer service goal. When customers ask questions, you’ll have immediate answers.

Inventory Control gives you real-time updating of inventory balances for up-to-the-moment inventory availability, commitments, planned ship dates, and expected receipts.

Use the Expresso Search feature at any input field for instant response to customer requests without interrupting your current task. You’ll reduce asset investment and increase inventory turns. Safety stock, EOQ, and order points can be automatically calculated for each inventory item. You have the information you need to reduce stock levels and satisfy customers. Buy the right items at the right time and reduce your investment.

You can increase inventory accuracy with regular cycle counting and complete transaction auditing. You’ll be able to determine how to allocate resources within your inventory with ABC analysis. Reduce stock-outs and lost sales with the Inventory Shortage Report and Purchase Order Expediting Report; keep them under control with Yesterday’s Zero Balance Report.

Purchase Order Processing

With the AddonSoftware Purchase Order Processing application, you can gain complete control of your company’s purchasing function. From replenishment analysis to printing, receiving, and payment, Purchase Order Processing is a comprehensive system that helps you reduce costs and eliminate errors as you improve customer service.

One of the main purposes of a distributor’s purchasing application is to answer the question: "What do I need to purchase today?" Automatic replenishment processing creates a "suggested buy" report that you can use to determine what, when, and how much to buy to get the best purchase price and to achieve your customer service targets. Track open purchase orders and identify potentially late shipments before they actually become late, and easily recall a history of purchase orders for any inventory item or for any vendor.

For maximum efficiency, on a single PO you can enter multiple shipments of the same item, using multiple required dates. And you can apply multiple PO receipts against a single PO and a single invoice. Fill customer backorders quickly and determine priorities with the Suggested Backorder Fill Report.

  • Purchase requisition entry and tracking
  • Duplicate historical receipt in Purchase Order Entry - Create a new Purchase Order from within Purchase Order Entry by duplicating a historical receipt
  • Detailed purchase order history
  • Suggested backorder fill report for cross-docking
  • Replenishment planning and automatic PO generation
