The Manu Online Enterprise Edition has all of the powerful business process features of the Mini Enterprise Edition with the addition of tools to manage high transaction volumes. The Enterprise Edition can be used with company sizes of 100+ employees but is very effective at managing high transaction volumes in smaller companies without the need to employ more administrative staff.

The following is the description of the added extensions:

Bulk processing – Purchase planner

Description

The purchase planner tool creates a batch of purchase orders based on actual demand, sales forecasts and minimum stock level information.

The purchase planner is an important tool in business automation and relies on information from many parts of the system to quickly generate purchase orders each to the correct supplier with correct quantities and lead times.

Benefits

  1. Allows for high volume purchase operations
  2. Saves lots of work compared to creating purchase orders individually on screen
  3. Supports procurement organisations with many buyers.
  4. Takes into account part number mapping between own and manufacturers’ codes.
  5. Buyers do not need to manually evaluate stock quantities or promised sales quantities etc. The machine will calculate all requirements automatically

How to start using

  1. Contact Manu Online support to enable this extensions on your system.
  2. On the Purchase menu, go to Other operations and then Automatic Purchase Order Generation.
  3. Set the parameters as necessary and press Run Now. One or more Under Construction purchase orders will be generated.
  4. Go to the purchase section and select and activate the purchase orders.
  5. If the purchase order planner is run again, it will overwrite any previously created purchase orders that were not activated.
  6. The accuracy of the purchase planner is improved by having supplier quotations entered and mapping of item id’s to manufacturer part numbers. The purchase planner is not useful if stock quantities, sales orders, purchase orders and product structures are incorrect in the system as it will therefore plan incorrect quantities.
