You'd think a link between Sales Orders and Purchase Orders was simple, but isn't possible with Sage 50 Professional ...

Many companies don't keep stock of the items they sell in order to keep costs down, but they take orders then have goods shipped directly to from their supplier to the customer.

I had a request to allow a sales order to be taken in Sage, but then to create a purchase order from it to send to the supplier, with pertinent information automatically transferred from the sales order to the purchase order.

"Creating these purchase orders manually can cause keying in errors and feels like repeating the same work twice!"

The Adept Back-to-Back Ordering Add-On enables you to select from a list of sales orders or sales invoices and create the purchase orders needed to satisfy the customer's requirements. The customer's delivery address is carried over seamlessly, and then the sales order or invoice is marked as 'processed', to prevent processing the same order twice.

This negates the need for manual duplication and keying in errors, and if a product is always purchased from the same supplier, you can indicate this with the default suppliers being listed against product codes.

The program works with Sage 50 Pro and Financial Controller versions 8 to 24 (2018) and costs £360.00 + VAT for a company-wide licence plus 20% Annual Renewal Fees. To take a look for yourself then request a free trial of the software visit click here to request a free trial of the software
