Do I have to create POs or track them in RestockPro if I already manage them elsewhere?
You do not have to track POs in RestockPro. But we highly recommend either creating your POs in RestockPro or at least importing POs created elsewhere for tracking. Here's why:
- Accurate Forecast: If your POs are in RestockPro, then your Restock Suggestions calculations will know about orders you've already placed. You won't risk placing duplicate orders or ordering too much of a product.
- Tracking Unshipped Inventory: By receiving your POs in RestockPro, you'll quickly spot items not shipped where you may be due a refund from the Supplier. Use the internal notes and order notes to keep track of what you may be owed.
- Managing Backorders: RestockPro helps ensure you keep track of what has been received and what is still coming, rather than keeping it all in your head or messy spreadsheets.
- Smart and Convenient Restocking: The Restock Suggestions view is your best spot to make restocking decisions with all the right data points. Create your PO in RestockPro, and you can easily export it via CSV to other systems.
