Automatically calculate delivered costs. Quickly reconcile purchases with received inventory using integrated matching and “trouble hold pay” capabilities. Issue “open price” purchase orders for your consignment sales agreements. Learn More
Price after PurchaseIssue purchase orders with open pricing. After you sell the product track sales and meet your profit objectives. Accurately compute payments due to your suppliers. Settle up with them after you have all the facts. Provide suppliers with a detailed explanation of the costs you’ve incurred and final selling prices. Correct profitability will be recorded as well.

Terminal Market SupportCustomize invoice entry screens to quickly handle large volumes of orders, even from handwritten ticket books. Mix phone orders and paper sales tickets. Create delivery invoices on the fly.
Standard Order TemplatesFacilitate quick order entry by using standard “sales order templates” that contain products frequently ordered by regular customers.
