Industry Driven ERP Enhancements

Sales Order Lines In-Transit Accounting

Many suppliers have a business process that does not allow them to invoice customers until delivery confirmation, which completes the supplier’s performance obligation. The time elapsed between shipping and delivery can be as much as sixty days. With this business process, suppliers cannot recognize revenue until the invoice has been posted, which must occur after the performance obligation. In the interim, suppliers do not know the value of the product that is in-transit.

Suppliers now have the ability to relieve inventory and show the value of the product on their books until the performance obligation is complete.

Service Management – Default for Responsible Business Unit

Customers using Case Management to manage service requests from customers can now create work orders without equipment information directly from Case Management utilizing the responsible business unit on the case.


Service Management – Customer and Site Search Option

An option added to many Service Management applications enables you to decide whether to use the data dictionary default application or the A/B Word Search (P01BDWRD) application for the search option on the customer and site address book  fields.
