Track your orders with clear order statuses
Statuses are linked to your purchase orders. You can make sure you've sent to them to the customer and identify which ones haven't been. Keeping track of which orders are due becomes simple. You can see overdue orders because you won't have marked them as being received.
- Make inward purchase order management easier
- Identify what you've received
- Create shipments for when you are due to receive items
- See which items are still outstanding
- Know who you need to chase and what you are waiting on
- When everything is received this links back to the work order and is marked as ready to go out to the customer
Manage and report on reworks
With Smart-Toolbox you'll quickly see that you aren't needing nearly as many reworks as before, but when you do - reworks are easier to manage and reporting systems let you identify the causes so you can improve even further.
- Easily reorder glass or products from your supplier
- If you receive bad glass you can quickly notify and provide accurate plans
- Mark reworks and record rework reasons
- This allows you to report on why you're having to rework
- Record whether the supplier or your team are at fault
- With internal faults, you can allocate a fault to a particular user
You can choose how detailed you get with this but being able to clearly identify and report on reworks lets your business see what is really going on.
