Sales Order Allocation


Order Time now features our brand-new Sales Order Allocation feature to assist in your supply chain management.

With Sales Order Allocation, you can completely control which stock is reserved as well as the ability to complete partial allocations and partial shipments. This is extremely helpful when you have limited supply coming in and you want to allocate stock to particular customers first. You can work with first-come first-served or really treat your VIP customers to inventory as fast as possible. Allocate stock to high valued customers to ensure inventory availability and dedicated sales. This reduces the likelihood of misallocated goods and errors.


Inventory and Quantity Management

As orders are fulfilled, it is key to keep tabs on all stock as it moves from your vendors, to the shelves, and into customers’ hands. Any lost stock can result in high costs, reduced sales, and dissatisfied customers. 


With Order Time, you can create a systematic approach to inventory management to prevent these mishaps from occurring. You can perform real-time accurate counts of how much is in transit and how the actual inventory is counted.

To perform accurate inventory and quantity counts, Order Time uses a transaction-based approach. This means that a transaction must first be created to add the stock. Then you can begin the process of allocation right away on your Sales Orders.
