Intelligent Purchasing from Blue Sky ERP brings together several features which help to automate and reduce manual processes within a Purchasing Department using Epicor ERP. These features include...
Intelligent PO Suggestions - Condenses down both New and Change PO suggestions into a more meaningful list of suggested actions.
The intelligent PO suggestions do not replace the existing Epicor MRP logic, instead new or change PO suggestions are processed through a secondary logic which then grades each suggestion in terms of a weighted priority to action taking into consideration both actual or calculated forecast demand. Thresholds can also be set in terms of order value or volume to determine whether a postponement or expedition should be actioned. Suggestions are then presented to the buyer with the most important / urgent suggestions placed first.
Automated Supplier Alerts - Provides the ability to follow up suppliers with automated emails for supplier acknowledgements and purchase overdues before you have too. Receive emailed responses back from the supplier and action accordingly.
Enhanced Time-Phase Display - The Time Phase enquiry screen is already a rich screen in terms of the information on display. We enhance this screen further by displaying additional customisation attributes within the time phase grid such as including the Customer or Supplier name, order requested and acknowledged dates. Additionally, we display the calculated part usages based upon 1, 3, 6 and 12 month usages. The part usages are automatically calculated on a nightly schedule.
Forecast Job Material Usage - Forecasting of job material usage parts are not relieved within the base Epicor product and you therefore stand the risk of over inflating demand. The intelligent purchasing solution relieves actual demand from the forecast which is placed within the forecast window. Forecasts for job materials can be entered as customer specific where manufacturing jobs are linked directly to a sales order.
