Quickly Create Multiple Item Records in a Single Window Save time with this powerful new option! You will be able to create multiple new Item Masters in a spreadsheet-like screen. Lots of data entry helps make this process faster than ever before!

Print Preset Notes for Manufacturers on Purchase Orders A new field in the manufacturer list allows you to enter a short note (100 characters) for each manufacturer and then print, fax, or e-mail along with purchase orders for that manufacturer. You might use this field to include notes like “Ship Via Common Carrier” or “Do not ship until total of all orders exceeds $1000.”

Select Any Cost To Appear on Printed Purchase Orders You can now select the raw cost, landed cost, selling price, or any of the pricing window prices to appear on your printed, faxed, or e-mailed purchase orders. You can also omit costing information entirely.

Include Customer Delivery Terms on Delivery Schedule Report This new feature allows you to set up custom text and then have it printed at the bottom of each delivery on the Delivery Schedule Report. For example, you might want to set up the delivery terms for your business and have them automatically print after the signature line on each delivery copy.
