Purchase-order processing

Purchase order processing – Retail Software UK

Getting the right products into your business, fast – that’s the name of the game today – you need to know what and how much to buy, when to buy, when it’s being delivered, whether the deliveries were correct – and how much to pay for it…
Controlling purchasing within budgets and across the whole enterprise, whilst maximising profits and sales, is key to the success of any retailer. At the same time you need to know which suppliers are really performing for you.
Sparkstone’s Purchase Order Processing software gives you the tools to maximise your supply chain opportunities.

“It’s so easy to use – all our staff love it…”

“…and a great investment for our business – in today’s market I wouldn’t want to go back to the dark old days…”

A leading retailer recently said:

“How much stock do we really need to own? When I visited America they run on 12-week stock. I want to run my business on six or seven-week stock.”

He added that in the downturn, more than ever, customers need to be excited and want freshness and newness in their stores. “It is about speed to market, speed is more important than price,” said Green.Sparkstone enables even the smallest retailer to level the playing field and react fast – don’t hang about
