RELEASE PROCESSING

 

IMPORT RELEASES

Updates current release file with new orders from your customers, either sent electronically or manually entered.  Options allow you to setup new trading partners in minutes and reset cumulative quantities by plant and/or customer.  One update will bring in DELFOR’s, 830’s, DELJIT’s, and 862’s as well as planning releases.

 

NEW ORDER INQUIRY

Useful screen/report that alerts you of new items that need to be added to your internal database.   Some of the items that are flagged are new part#, new plant#, new order,  and dock code change.

 

RELEASE FM

Handy screen that stores all of the customer’s current orders as well as shipping schedules, shipping history, and planning releases.  The OE# (order entry number) represents a specific part shipping to a specific plant.  The OE# helps maintain cum-year-to-date quantities and can also be used to track shipments against a particular po# if required.   The OE# is a huge shortcut when tracking down orders, creating shipments, and printing labels.    Your staff will never need to remember an OE# since search windows make locating orders quick and easy so answering questions regarding an order is extremely efficient.

 

MANUAL RELEASE FM

Entry screen used to enter/update any orders that not received electronically.  These can be orders that are faxed or phoned in.   As with the electronic orders, manual orders are kept in an on-line history file each time they are imported.

Useful tool for reconciling your internal cumulative-shipped-year-to-date with the customer’s cytd.  Report lists individual orders that have differences.

 

NET CHANGE REPORT

Commonly referred to as a “spike” report, the Net Change report will show changes in release quantities from a past history of the orders.  Users can select the number of copies of the orders that are compared and any differences in the order quantities is shown.  A useful tool in recognizing jumps (or drops) in order quantities quickly before it’s too late.
