What's New in Nov 08

New claims facility

A new claims facility has been added to to the retail system. Two modes of entry are provided; the first from entry of receivals against a purchase order (overcharges, short deliveries, etc.); the second for items returned by customers due to manufacturing fault, etc.

While entering receivals against purchase orders, lines can be flagged to indicate a claim needs to be made. If so flagged, at the end of the receiving process the claims screen is displayed. The lines flagged are displayed with invoiced price & quantity, & entry of reason for claim (pre-defined), & claim quantity & value may be entered. The claim can be immediately printed or emailed to the supplier.

For claims relating to customers (or damaged floor stock), details of each line are recorded along with reason for the claim, & the claim printed or emailed.

If the 'Pass-for-payment' facilities are enabled, the claim can be passed separately from the invoice, once a credit note has been received.

The purchase Order report now has options to include claims in the report.

This is an optional Fee-for-use facillity.
