Weekly Help Desk Notes 08-14-19

 Welcome to your weekly Help Desk Notes and Support Survey!

Look What Alert Can Do!

Welcome to Alert's weekly feature where we discuss things Alert
does that you may not know about!
Let's PAWS and learn!

 

Add-On Feature - Purchase Orders

Did you know that Alert has a Purchase Order Software Module?
As an internal control feature, the idea is that authorized
employees make requisitions for what they'd like to purchase
and the requisitions are then approved and turned in to a Purchase Order.
T
hen the order is placed with the vendor, and the Accounts Payable folks only pay
invoices from the vendors when the items have  been received, and the purchase order
is referenced on the invoice. This prevents two things: unauthorized
purchases and fraudulent invoices from vendors.

While our Purchase Order module has been around for several years,
we make enhancements every revision to make it better and better.
Now our PO system has its own dashboard (pictured), integrates with QuickBooks,
and can be set to auto-reorder. 
V.19 enhancements are listed below.

The robust Purchase Order module integrates with email for easy
approval and notification, and automatically updates your
inventory when merchandise is received. If you'd like a bid for the
Purchase Order Module, let us know at sales@alertms.com!

Version 19 News!

This Week's Featured Enhancements
Purchase Order Enhancements

The Purchase Order Module got a few updates in v.19!

First, we added expense purchase orders for non- inventory purchases.
Need to order toilet paper for the shop? Now create a PO just for that purpose.

Next, we broke out fees for items already received and fees for items yet to be received.

Finally, we added the ability to create a  new PO Requisition from a CSV
spreadsheet file! Let us know at
support@alertms.com if you need help
with any of these enhancements.
