Sales & Order Processing
This process covers all activity from the entry of an order through its transmission to the warehouse for “pick, pack, and ship.” Included are credit checks, inventory checks, automated P.O. integration for special orders and out of stocks, and generation of the proper ledger entries to insure proper billing of the order. Quoting is a separate process, although quotes should be able to become orders without reentry of any data.
