The new developments featured in this month’s newsletter are:

OrderWise Introduces All New, Feature-Rich Store EPOS – Delivering the ideal combination of up-to-the-minute technology, reliability and efficiency, version 12.7 of OrderWise sees the grand launch of our newly enhanced, comprehensive and feature-rich OrderWise Store EPOS system.

Maximise Efficiency With Automated Delivery Selection – OrderWise has introduced functionality to automate delivery method selection based on various aspects of the outgoing order, offering a streamlined process that removes the pains of manually selecting correct delivery options on every order and provides accurate, cost-effective selections every time.

Greater Stock Level Visibility When Making Bulk Orders –  For businesses raising bulk orders with suppliers and then calling off stock as it is required, having visibility of what stock is available can be difficult to achieve. With the latest version of OrderWise, users can benefit from even more control over how stock levels are shown, with the addition of a new system setting to include bulk unallocated stock in free and closing stock value.

Enhanced Task Visibility In OrderWise CRM – OrderWise CRM can already help businesses effectively manage new enquiries, customer account contact, sales opportunities and general interactions with clients. Extending this functionality this month, version 12.7 of OrderWise sees two more great new enhancements added to the highly beneficial CRM module.

Reduce Costs By Amalgamating Orders At Shipping – For any business, streamlining despatch processes and reducing delivery costs are key elements to remaining competitive. Providing further functionality to drive this into daily operations, this month’s OrderWise release sees the ability to now amalgamate customer orders when shipping goods.

Benefit From Even Greater Accuracy In Your Stock Valuations – Purchased stock is such an important asset for any business, however, with so many different variables involved in the cost of purchased stock, obtaining an accurate stock valuation figure can be problematic. Solving these issues, this month sees the extensive OrderWise stock valuation functionality extended with the option to include transfers in the main stock valuation.
