SOP fulfilment methods (stock settings)

You can choose how you want to fulfil your stock when processing orders in the Sale Order Processing and Stock Control modules.

Once this is set up you can maintain your individual stock items or product group fulfilment methods using Stock Records > Stock Order Fulfilment.

Entering SOP fulfilment methods

Open: Stock Control > Utilities > System Set Up > Stock Control Settings | SOP Fulfilment Methods.

  • Select the fulfilment methods you want to use:
    • From Stock.

      This is the most commonly used type of processing, where a sales order is allocated and despatched from the free stock you hold.

    • From Supplier Via Stock.

      Select this to use back-to-back sales order processing. This generates a purchase order directly from your sales orders if required.

    • Direct To Customer.

      Stock is delivered direct to the sales order delivery address, rather than your warehouse. When generating a purchase order, the delivery on the printed order will be the address of the customer. This allows the purchase order to have many delivery addresses.

    Note: Purchase orders that are generated to satisfy back to back or direct sales orders do not have project analysis entered. This is to prevent the postings for the cost of the stock being made twice (once from the sales order and once from the purchase order).
