Yellow Dog Inventory has a complete purchasing offering which includes requests, purchase orders, receipts, invoices, transfers, and returns to vendors.
The flow of these purchasing documents can be related – meaning a request for product can be created which can then be turned into a PO or perhaps a transfer.
The example below shows a manually entered invoice complete with miscellaneous expenses.
Vendor EDI Integration
Yellow Dog Software offers approximately 30 EDI interfaces with various vendors to electronically import invoices and price lists. Typically, these items are processed several times a day. Depending on your configuration, these invoices can come across as a receipt or a pending invoice awaiting your confirmation. You can also have invoices be automatically accepted.
The interface can take any new items and assign them to a temporary coding structure so that your invoice process is never interrupted.
The example below shows how an invoice from Sysco has been automatically imported as an invoice.
Commissary and Transfers to Multiple Outlets
Yellow Dog Inventory can be configured to manage all your enterprise’s physical inventory outlets. In the example below, we show how a location may have 7 outlets with the option to activate an item in any of those outlets. Note: these could be 7 physical “stores” across a multi-unit group.
Transfers between locations can be issued and accepted by a user, or the originating store can issue the transfer and the receiving location is required to accept it. You can also create a “Reverse Transfer” to return certain items back to the originating location. A great way to handle bringing unused product back into a location.
