”Black Friday weekend, we had over 3,000 Purchase Orders when we came in on Monday morning. In the old days, that would have been a lot of work to process those. With Acumatica, we could release all 3,000 Purchase Orders in maybe an hour to our warehouse and ship all of that product out. We could also ship-confirm everything automatically. That’s a big deal.Bob BourriagueCOO of Ubio Labs, Inc.

Inventory bins and location controls make it easy for you to create a physical and logical warehouse structure. For each warehouse, specify the allowable inventory item types and transactions. You can also define the priority of when items are picked and the cost of items.

Acumatica makes it easy to define workflow rules for sales orders and purchase orders. Based on the type of order, you can define rules for vendor information, discount amount, order amount, or transaction-specific information.
Acumatica makes it easy to apply full or partial inventory receipts against a purchase order. You can also easily apply inventory items received on a single receipt against multiple purchase orders or enter multiple bills against a single receipt.
Acumatica allows you to define volume discounts and multiple discounts per item so it is easy to manage complex pricing and discount policies. With price overrides, it is easy to establish pricing policies while still having the option to override prices in specific cases.
