November 2015 Newsletter Out Now

November 2015 Newsletter ImageThe OrderWise November 2015 Newsletter is now available to read here.

In this month’s issue, we highlight some of the great new functionality added in version 10.11 of OrderWise, including several features to help users achieve effective order management over the festive period. These include the ability to automatically allocate on-purchase stock to orders, greater visibility of information relating to returned items and functionality to edit the delivery method across multiple orders all at once. Also in this month’s newsletter, we take a look at why today’s online businesses need to have a responsive website and how the introduction of the Living Wage means companies need to raise productivity within their operations.

You can read all about this in our latest blogs.

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

  • Keep Up With Order Demand This Christmas With Our Auto Allocation Functionality – With Christmas now only a few weeks away, many businesses will have already entered into their busy period, experiencing a much greater influx of sales orders than previous months. That’s why at this time of year, it is vitally important that businesses are able to not only sell the items they have in stock, but also items that are due to arrive. New functionality added to OrderWise this month facilitates this ability. Read More >>
  • Proactive Management of Customer Credit Control With OrderWise CRM & Accounts – Keeping track of customer credit limits often requires structured control, therefore businesses will look to manage their accounts through CRM systems to ensure clients are notified when payments are due. With this in mind, we have added greater integration in version 10.11 of OrderWise between the Accounts and CRM modules to offer streamlined handling of account contact. Read More >>
  • Save Time By Editing Order Delivery Methods En-Masse – Although usually a straightforward process, complications can often arise should a delivery method need to be changed across multiple orders after they have already been raised. Providing a solution to this problem, new functionality has been added in version 10.11 of OrderWise that offers businesses efficient means of editing the delivery method across multiple different sales orders. Read More >>
  • Greater Visibility Within OrderWise Returns – Although many businesses will strive to keep returns volumes down, with the season of gift-giving now under-way, companies will inevitably be processing refunds and exchanges as customers returns their unwanted items. That’s why this month we have added more details at a transactional level to offer users an easy indication of why items have been returned. Read More >>
  • Don’t Let Missing Barcodes Slow Down Despatch – Products found to be missing a usable barcode can be something that crops up occasionally within busy warehouse environments, causing delays in the despatch process if not handled effectively. To negate this problem, version 10.11 of OrderWise sees a new feature added that allows businesses to have full visibility of items left to scan when packing goods ready to ship.  Read More >>
  • Book In The Right Products Every Time With Purchase Order Attachments – For businesses receiving bespoke components or products, warehouse staff not having the right information at the point these are booked in from suppliers can cause problems and fulfilment delays down the line. Therefore a new feature has been added to OrderWise to enable Purchase Order Line attachments to be viewed at Goods In. Read More >>

  • The Living Wage Is Coming Into Effect So It’s Time You Got The Most Out Of Your Staff – Here in the UK, we have always struggled with a lack of productivity within the working environment as recent research has shown that we are far behind our closest economic rivals when it comes to our output.
