The Goods Import screen
Allows Importers to Input their overseas supplier orders with foreign currency. Just add the exchange rate and shipping charges at the top right of the screen and then the line items with the FOB Cost and click Calculate. Each line is costed and the total calculated updating the F.I.S. in the product file.
The Load Transit Screen is used by our Clients who are importers.
In the scenario where you have more than 1 Order, on an overseas supplier, the Transit screen allows you to consolidate all or some of the items on the various supplier orders into a new Shipment Reference and ETA Date. This is done by importing your suppliers shipping advice or invoice into the Transit screen and updating the Qty’s and ETA.
Then simply go into the Goods Import screen and call up by the Transit reference to load the products into the screen according to the Suppliers invoice.
It also keeps your sales force informed live as to when the goods can be expected in.
Instructions on the file are in the Transit screen. The screen can be found from the Control Tab in the Task Menu
