What is Supplier Connect?
Supplier Connect as the Name Implies, provides an Interactive connection to your Suppliers who also run Peach Software.
This connection uses your Peach Online credentials to identify you and direct your connection to the supplier. Once you have been successfully connected, all communications are between you and your supplier directly while protected using the SSL protocols and encryptions.
How can Supplier Connect benefit you?
The Automotive industry is fast moving in many aspects. Inventory requirements are complex meaning you need access to detailed information efficiently and instantly. Being able to call on information right from within your Peach POS Software is fast and convenient so that where we have added Supplier Connect.
Supplier Connect enables you to obtain live information from your suppliers which includes Product Availability, Images and Standard and Net Pricing. This information can be obtained during product & Customer enquiries, Purchasing and Booking Goods into your system, at which time invoices from your supplier can be recalled into your goods receipting screen, compared with your cross check and updated.
Have a customer making an enquiry for a product I don’t have or have insufficient stock off ? Need to know who has it, and the cost, so you can quote your customer Price and Availability?
From the Customer Enquiry / Order, Invoice or POS screens, I can call up any product from my Active Product or Reference (Suppliers) file, and instantly hit my Supplier Connect icon to view that supplier’s available stock and my current buy price, enabling me to provide the customer with accurate pricing and lead times.
I would like to determine which supplier offers the best price and availability.
From Product Control, or any transaction screen, I can call up any product from my Active Product or Reference (Suppliers) file, and instantly hit my Supplier Connect icon. Any Peach Suppliers who I have a Peach Online Login with, that have a product matching my part or one of its alternates in the F7 Area of my product control, will appear. I can select and compare each of my suppliers to determine my best price and delivery options.
I want to Order a product for Stock or a Customer but want to check the Image
Once you have selected a product and hit the Supplier Connect Icon, where the available suppliers have an image, both your and their images will appear in this screen. Based on permissions from the supplier you can transfer this image to your own product file for future referencing.
I am generating a Supplier Order and would like to know before I update it if the stock is available and what the current buy price is.
Once you have generated or typed the Supplier Order simply click the Check P&A icon and your screen will highlight shortages from the supplier and price changes. You may decide to change the order based on this feedback or even change the supplier and check the price and availability once again. Before sending the order off you’ll have a good idea of the supply rate and any cost changes. You could also check individual lines on your order to see images and compare prices with other available suppliers.
Once finalised the Supplier Order can now be submitted online directly from the update screen at which time you will receive a Picking slip number you can refer to.
I’ve just received a delivery which has been checked in by my staff as a delivery Docket. I have retrieved the Delivery Docket into my Goods in screen to finalise it, but the Totals don’t match, meaning I must check off Qty and Price line by line.
Once you have recalled the Supplier Order into your Goods in screen, Enter the Suppliers invoice Number from the paperwork and click Load invoice. The Price and Qty will be populated from the supplier’s invoice in their system. At this stage you can update without doubt about details matching. If a Supplied Qty or price discrepancy occurs a Goods in Report will be triggered so you can check variances and action price changes or Credit Requests.
In the event you have rung through an order and not generated it in Peach Software, the invoice from the supplier can still be downloaded into the Goods in screen once the supplier is loaded and the suppliers invoice number entered.
