The Purchasing module provides an easy way for businesses to order and purchase products for use in production and for sale. Some of the great features Unleashed provides with the Purchase module are:

  • Easy to use database management tools for all your supplier and production information
  • The ability to send purchase orders directly from Unleashed via email
  • Handy tab-driven data entry pages.

The purchases module enables you to start your inventory management process. From this module, you have the ability to:

  • Record stock coming in and
  • Edit supplier details.

An example of the Purchases process in Unleashed

Examples of why this is useful

One example use case is a freight company that needs to add costs such as freight and duty – anything that relates to the cost of getting the products to your door.

Another is a shipping company that needs to have receipted in some stock on a purchase order —but not everything that you ordered has arrived— in this case the Split Receipt feature can be used.

Workflow example

Here is how this functionality works in practice: Let’s imagine John, an Unleashed user — who uses the Unleashed Large plan— wants to create and import suppliers so they can make purchase transactions using Unleashed. He wants the flexibility that Unleashed provides of creating a purchase order, costing, receipting and split receipting it. John also wants to design his own templates for purchase orders and supplier return documentation. All these functions are available in Unleashed’s Purchase module. Here is a diagram of a typical workflow in Unleashed:
