3 Ways EDI Helps Your Business

  1. Saves Time. Sending an electronic message across the country or around the world only takes seconds or minutes rather than days or weeks. Once the message is received, the information can be used immediately without manual intervention.
  2. Improves accuracy. Every time human intervention is involved when copying information, there is a chance for human error. A misplaced decimal point can cause hours worth of headaches, or even worse, a canceled order!
  3. Product spends Less Time in Boxes and More Time on the Shelves. EDI makes the receiving of goods to warehouses MUCH simpler and quicker. Instead of taking a couple hours or days to get your goods on the retailers shelf, that time is reduced so your product is out there ready to be purchased.

OptCenter Milestone 8

–          There is now a new display for Invoices Items.

–          New Incremental Invoice Number Generator ( You can now set a starting invoice number and the invoice numbers will be assigned sequentially to all invoices when creating Invoices in bulk )

–          There is now a new Invoice “Details” Button on the PL Manager page. This window will show the invoices attached to an ASN/Packing List, along with the store # and all relative information for that Invoice.

Updates to Packing List Creation:

 

–          Users can now create a Packing List using Multiple PO’s,  as well as choose all PO’s with the same Ship To!

New Year, means new beginnings! This year we are making some major upgrades to the OptCenter to make your experience better!

The OptCenter will be down starting Wednesday February 19th, 2015 at 12AM EST until 11AM EST to implement the new milestone 7.

Milestone 7 Notes

*PO Downloads is now becoming Purchase Orders – We have added some really cool functionality to the Purchase Order screen. Instead of it being a place where you can only download PDFs, it is now your hub to manage Purchase Orders.

The page now keeps track of how many items were on the PO and how many items you have invoiced and/or shipped. For example: If you see a PO with 0/56 under the invoice column that means you have 56 items on that PO and you invoiced 0.

Also from this page, you can use the new quick create buttons to jump you to the packing list or invoice creation popup screen.

*Combined the Pending and History tables – Now you have the ability to view all your invoices/shipments in one table. We also added functionality to those tables to hide completed documents so you don’t get bogged down with older documents you don’t need to view any more. Don’t worry though, those hidden documents can be shown at any time using the filtering options to show anything you have hidden.

 

We hope these changes make your lives easier and your year more prosperous!
