Purchase Order (PO)

What is a PO?

At its core, a Purchase Order serves as a formal contractual document between a buyer and a supplier. It outlines the specifics of the goods or services to be acquired, including quantities, prices, delivery timelines, and terms of payment. In the dynamic landscape logistics, integrating Purchase Orders seamlessly into operations is a transformative step toward achieving precision and efficiency. Whenever the items are out of stock or need to be restocked, the seller raises a purchase order.

Key Benefits of Purchase Order:

  1. Structured Procurement: Purchase Orders provide a structured framework for procurement transactions, ensuring clarity and reducing ambiguity.
  2. Enhanced Communication: Serving as a formal communication channel, Purchase Orders facilitate transparent communication between buyers and suppliers, crucial for effective logistics management.
  3. Order Tracking and Accountability: Presence of Purchase Orders into Warehouse and Order Management Systems enables seamless order tracking, fostering accountability and minimizing errors.

The purchase order (PO) generated via Omniful provides users with robust visibility. Users can track the statuses of various activities related to the PO, including gate entry, Goods Receipt Note (GRN), and putaway. Detailed information on items ordered through the PO is available. Additionally, users can monitor ordered items to identify instances of over-receipt or under-receipt. In cases where items from a single PO arrive in multiple shipments, Omniful allows users to link these shipments to the same PO, enabling tracking on a shipment-by-shipment basis.

Stock Transfer Order (STO)

Unveiling the Power of Stock Transfer Order

In the ever-evolving landscape of supply chain management, businesses continually seek tools to enhance efficiency and streamline processes. One such indispensable feature is the Stock Transfer Order, the seamless movement of goods or materials between hubs.

What is a Stock Transfer Order?

The Stock Transfer Order feature, residing within a comprehensive dashboard, is meticulously designed to facilitate and manage the movement of goods or materials between different hubs or locations. Its primary aim is to optimise the logistics of transferring stock, ensuring a smooth and organised process from the source to the destination.

The key focus of an STO is on moving physical stock, not financial transactions. No money changes hands when transferring goods internally through an STO. The value of the inventory remains the same, although its location and potentially its ownership within the company might change.
