Distribution: Order Entry – Faster & Quicker

A faster & more efficient sales order experience

Enhancements have been added to the Order Entry module that empower users to more rapidly create orders, wherever they are, on whatever device. Orders can then be fast tracked for immediate invoice processing. Data can be located faster, with the addition of new order entry tabs, and greater detail can be viewed on mobile devices. This allows users to get in and out of the application quickly, minimizing application navigation times.

Create orders at the counter, or wherever you are.

New UI allows users to create an Invoice Order on any device, especially suitable for counter sales.


Order Entry—see greater detail on mobile devices.

To further support the creation of an Invoice Order or selecting an item for billing, functionality carried within 10.6 now includes: 1) prepaid freight, 2) terms code, 3) cost center/unit, 4) freight and miscellaneous charges.


Rapid Order Entry - find what you're looking for faster.

Tabs have been added to the Order Entry forms to enhance the user experience. Now see separate tabs for general details, items and freight and miscellaneous charges.

Order Inquiry

A progress bar has been added to the top of every order to provide order statuses-at-a-glance, increasing the speed to deliver answers to customers.

Find what you need, faster.

Find what you need—faster. Our new interface enables users to add, delete and change quantities on-the-fly, right from the entry screen. Navigation is efficient, using type-ahead search, drop down menus and pre-populated fields, and new functionality includes inline editing of data.
