New Order Types

The Business Edge now has the ability to have three different Order Types. Regular Orders, Work Orders and VMI (Vendor Managed Inventory) Orders. This gives us the ability to add new options for Contract Pricing and Sales Analysis. You could have separate Contract pricing for Regular Orders and VMI Orders, or only offer Contract pricing on VMI Orders.

Each Order Type supports all levels of Orders – Quote, Pending Order, Hold Order, Firm Order and RMA.

The new options are:

  • Quote
  • Pending Order
  • Hold Order
  • Firm Order
  • RMA

  • Work Order Quote
  • Pending Work Order
  • Hold Work Order
  • Work Order
  • Work Order RMA

  • VMI Quote
  • VMI Pending Order
  • VMI Hold Order
  • VMI Firm Order
