We have observed an increasing number of stores purchasing inventory from multiple EDI capable suppliers. When an item is able to be purchased from multiple suppliers, cancellation of an item by a single EDI supplier should not automatically cancel the inventory item in your store.
Paladin POS now handles this situation differently. In cases were there are two or more suppliers defined for the item, rather than killing the part number, the supplier that canceled the item is removed from the supplier list as a viable supplier. This allows the item to remain as an active inventory item in your store, supported by the remaining suppliers displayed in the inventory record. The EDI sub-report of Canceled Items would be a valuable tool to utilize in the management of canceled items.
