SupplyLogic has been updated to support the new MSA reporting requirements, STARS Tobacco Products Reporting Package.
Current changes due January 2021 include delivery date for transactions. Previous changes include the reporting of floor returns and the break out of customer returns into sellable and non-sellable returns.
SupplyLogic provides for manual entry of customer orders. Since accurate inventory is maintained by the system, shortages can be known at the time of placing the order. SupplyLogic generates a picking document for items to be picked for route delivery or customer pick up. As the order is picked, any changes can be made to the picking document without re-entry of information. As the picking is completed, the inventory is again automatically adjusted.
SupplyLogic has point-of-sale functionality to accommodate customers that enter the warehouse, pick their own products, and bring the products to a register for check-out and payment (cash, check or charge on account). Hardware interfaces include cash drawer, scanner and printer.
With the DAC Express app, customers can use their iPad or Windows laptop to submit remote orders. The distributor’s sales reps at remote store locations can also use it to quickly and efficiently create orders by scanning product bar codes. If Internet access is interrupted, DAC Express users can continue creating orders for submission later when access is restored.
SupplyLogic provides for the entry of purchase orders, which then act as documents for receiving orders. As the receipt of inventory is checked, changes can be made to the receiving document without re-entry of information. As receiving is completed, the inventory is automatically adjusted.
SupplyLogic provides for accurate accounting of inventory at all times. The base system requires manual entry of receiving, audits and adjustments. Future enhancements will include a remote device (RF or cradled) with or without a scanning option for each function.
SupplyLogic has an interactive search tool that enables the user to analyze sales data based on several factors, including customer, salesperson, route; category, class, item; period (day, week, month and year); sales dollars, and sales quantity.
SupplyLogic automatically collects, formats and transfers data to MSA in the MULTICAT format, enabling the distributor to participate in manufacturer trade programs.
