The Special Order (SO) system covers existing and non-stocked products. When you place the special order, it will auto-generate pending purchase orders for all suppliers identified with that order.
- Every special order item is named using the prefix SO, followed by a unique computer-generated SO number. Example: SO00012
- With the SO number, you can track the special order and the receiving, sales, and financial gain transactions.
- The new SO item is blocked from being reordered.
- The SO is set to a unique automatic department number that is based on the employee’s ID number.
- Example: If employee 15 created a special order item, the department will be 20015.
- This allows for a breakdown of special order sales, costs, and margins by salesperson, on the comparative revenue reports.
