De Facto® Sales Order Software provides detailed visibility of product allocation and availability including 'available to promise' quantities and the ability to control required and available delivery dates against orders. During data entry you will (if required), be alerted when there is insufficient stock to meet the requested shipment date. The 'Expediting' window also provides features to enable you to adjust the product queue priority and the splitting of order shipments, to fairly distribute short supply product between customers.
Real-time allocation, reservation or picking is available during order entry. These features provide the ability to allocate the order line to specific physical stock or forward purchases of product that are due in. This is especially useful when offering unique pieces of stock or when guaranteed product availability is required. The Expediting window makes it easy to view the 'quantity available to promise' whilst if there is insufficient stock available the system can automatically issue alerts.
An automated commitment horizon can be maintained by the system, within which all orders are automatically committed against available stock. This helps prevent the tying up of valuable stock against forward orders (i.e. those beyond the horizon).
The scheduled delivery date can default from the Transport Management Routing System for the order's delivery point. Hold until dates on orders can be combined with complete shipment requests to further control the delivery date of an order.
