What’s New in Mailware 2011

Feature Announcement #1

Cross Docking

Filling orders from received merchandise used to mean entering them into inventory first, then pulling them back out to complete a customer’s order. With the new Cross Docking feature you can receive items directly from purchase orders to orders.

Feature Announcement #2

Serialized Inventory

Receive inventory from purchase orders and simultaneously scan unique serial numbers for each product. Then sell and track serial numbers to customers. Serial numbers are stored at the product level and can be viewed including received date and operator.

Feature Announcement #3

Enhanced Purchase Orders

We’ve added new features to the purchase order system like line item discounts (% and $), Terms, Required Dates, minimum purchase amounts and free freight thresholds. New fields are tied to enhanced feature sets in the Supplier and Receive Inventory screens for a more robust purchasing system.

Feature Announcement #4

Enhanced Receive Inventory

You can scan items, including UPC Codes, without using the keyboard (other than a keystroke to receive multiple quantities). We’ve added an admin override feature if the cost doesn’t match what was on the PO and added a % and $ discount field that carries over from the PO and can be modified. Plus you can adjust prices from the packing list/invoice, and then post to inventory. Serial numbers can be scanned in at Receive Inventory now and stored (see the Serialized Inventory feature).

Feature Announcement #5

Enhanced Substitutions

We added additional substitutions, which now work for kits, with a prompt on the order screen to select which item they want to substitute (or it can do it automatically based on highest inventory)
