Understanding Operations Management In an ERP System

Along with the financial module perhaps the other most important module in an ERP which forms the core of the system is the operations module. The operations module comprises of the following elements.

Purchase Orders

The Purchase Orders module provides a comprehensive, fully integrated purchasing system. You can combine multiple purchase orders on a single receipt and multiple receipts on a single invoice. The Shippable Backorder report helps identify orders that can be completed based on recent Inventory Receipts.

Order Entry


The Order Entry module allows you to enter orders and sales returns and print invoices, credit notes, order confirmations, picking slips, and shipping labels. You can track transaction details and sales information on-screen and in printed reports. Order Entry integrates fully with Inventory Control and Accounts Receivable, so you always know your inventory levels and the status of your customer accounts.

Inventory Control

Inventory Control is a complete multi-location inventory management system that keeps track of stock levels and processes inventory receipts, shipments, returns, and adjustments. Inventory Control includes extensive screen inquiry and reporting functions to give you the detailed, current information crucial for effective inventory management.

Lot Tracking

Lot Tracking traces lots back to your vendors, or down to your clients, making this otherwise time-consuming task a snap.

Industries as diverse as pharmaceutical, food products, and plastics all require thorough inventory management – including the ability to determine at a moment’s notice which vendor provided you with a product, and which customer took delivery of a specific batch.

Lot Tracking gives you the power and flexibility to comply with regulatory requirements and to provide better service for your customers and internal operations staff.
Lot Tracking helps you manage such important information as source, expiration date, lot, and batch quarantine, as well as additions and maintenance. It is the ideal addition for clients in industries where lot and expiration tracking is crucial.
