Cost your goods

Ensure you are getting a clear picture of the associated costs of purchasing stock, such as freight or duty.

  • Average Landed Cost
    Add the costs of freight, duty or other purchasing costs to your order, and those costs are distributed by value or by your manual setting across your goods for an accurate average landed cost – the true cost of purchasing your goods.
  • Accurate margins
    An accurate average landed cost means you have clearer margins, so you have better insight into which products are the most profitable.

Save time with suppliers

No need to manually enter a supplier’s prices and product codes when Unleashed purchase orders use them automatically.

  • Supplier price books
    Keep a record of what your goods cost to purchase from multiple suppliers, with price books kept recorded against the product. Save time when purchasing from an alternative supplier, as their prices are used automatically.
  • Customised documentation
    Customise the documentation for your supplier, using their specific product code, currency, discounts, while meeting their purchasing documentation requirements.

Buying in bulk?

Easily break down your bulk purchases and save time with automatic disassembly for your goods.

  • Automatic unit conversions
    Don’t waste time and energy on manual unit conversions. Create a Bill of Material for a product purchased in bulk, and it will disassemble automatically into individual units as it’s added to your inventory, including costs. It’s set and forget for buying in bulk.

Update accounting software

All completed purchases and costings are sent automatically to your accounting software, to keep your business financials accurate.

Flexible purchases

Stock doesn’t always arrive at the same time, so you can split your purchases and purchase costs to reflect what is happening in your business. Split transactions are sent to your accounting software as they are completed, so your records remain accurate and up to date.

Purchase Orders FAQ

Contact us today if you have more questions about how Purchase Orders can work for your business.

  • Can I auto-disassemble products with serial or batch numbers?

    No. During the disassembly, a serial or batch number must be assigned to all the component products, so these disassemblies must be done manually.

  • Can I have more than one Bill of Material per product?’

    Only one Bill of Material can be used per product to break it down into component products, however a component product can result from more than one disassembled finished good. For example a box of umbrellas can be disassembled into individual umbrellas, and a crate of umbrellas can also be disassembled into individual umbrellas.

  • Where do I turn on disassembly?

    Each product can be toggled as being ‘Can Auto-assemble’ and ‘Can Auto-Disassemble’ on a Bill of Materials. No separate Bill of Materials is needed. Manual disassemblies can be create under the Production menu.
