Increase Order Accuracy and Save Time
Buy What You Sell, Instead of Selling What You Buy
SSCS’s Computer Assisted Ordering (CAO) module for the CDBWin c-store back office system streamlines the ordering process by allowing you to generate and send item orders to participating vendors. The process is quick and greatly reduces the number of manual errors that can result from manual order creation, but CAO’s greatest strength is its ability to automatically generate orders based on what you are actually selling in your store.
As your order is created, CDBWin creates a purchase order and waits for delivery. When merchandise is delivered, quantities are verified, new items are set up, margins are checked, and new items and price changes are sent to the POS. By ordering items that you know sell in your store and not reordering slow-moving items, you keep more of what is “moving.” A significant percentage of stocking problems are due to ordering problems. Being able to stock fast-moving items and avoid slow-moving items can decrease a store’s inventory investment significantly.
Once your reorder levels are set up, you will be able to generate vendor orders for future deliveries. You may also generate orders based on sales activity or manually keying in quantities on items in the selected department range. As your order is created, the purchase order is created and waits for delivery.
Computer Assisted Ordering requires the following:
- PC meeting the CDBWin System Requirements
- Computerized Daily Book™ with the Daily Book, A/P, Inventory, and EDI Conversion modules
