Sage MAS 500 Purchase Order

Sage MAS 500 Purchase Order maximizes flexibility by ensuring ordering accuracy and minimizing errors in receipt of goods. This module helps you manage all aspects of your purchasing system effectively. Simplified requisitions can decentralize purchasing processes while purchase order matching helps avoid costly quantity and pricing errors.

Operational Flexibility
Blanket Purchase Orders
Setup and maintain blanket purchase orders for large quantities of goods to be received from one vendor over a period of time. Generate standard purchase orders from the blanket purchase orders, which will reduce the quantities on the blanket until requirements are met. Entering blanket purchase orders saves time when entering repetitive data and to eliminate duplicate work, and take advantage of all available discounts.
Set Up
Buyers Maintain buyer’s names and email addresses as well as a maximum authorization amount. Tolerance Codes Set up and maintain tolerances for purchase order matching. Two types of matching options are available: one defines the tolerance which a voucher quantity or cost can deviate from the quantity or cost specified on the purchase order, the second compares the receipt date to the promise date.
Vendor Items A vendor item associates an item and its cost information with a vendor. One item can be associated with various vendors by creating a vendor item for each vendor. Departments Set up and maintain departments and the corresponding address and contact information. Use this information to set up contacts and ship to addresses on purchase orders and requisitions. You can also select a segment code to override the department segment of a General Ledger account.
Custom Fields Define and maintain validated custom field values both for the overall order and for each individual line item. History Retention Elect to keep purchase orders, receivers, and requisitions for any number of months you specify (up to 999).
Item/Vendor Cross Reference Use Set Up Item/Vendor Cross Reference to cross-reference your company’s noninventory item ID with a vendor’s item ID. For each item, enter the vendor ID and the vendor’s item ID or part number.
Enter Requisitions Enter a vendor and due date on each requisition line and then create purchase orders directly from the requisition. Generate Purchase Orders From Requisitions Directly convert requisition lines into one or more new purchase orders by clicking Generate PO in the Enter Requisitions window. In the Select Requisition Lines window, you select the lines to generate a purchase order. You also specify whether the cost should default from the requisition; otherwise, the cost defaults from the current cost of the item.
Enter Purchase Orders A purchase order is the basic component the system uses to process purchase transactions. Use Enter Purchase Orders to enter detail information for standard purchase orders. You can also generate standard purchase orders from blanket purchase orders or requisitions. Tagging Orders PO Tagged Orders allows you to link any open, non-drop ship purchase order line to any number of sales order lines. Tagged order information can be included on the Purchase Order Receiving Ticket under its related purchase order line. This enables you to pick the tagged orders before other orders if desired. Tagging is a manual process, is informational only, and is only available if Purchase Order is integrated with Inventory Management.
Recent Purchases Summary View the Recent Purchases Summary by right clicking in the Unit Cost field of the Lines tab. The Recent Purchases Summary presents a list of the last thirty purchases for the item. Attaching additional notes Edit or add new notes associated with a purchase order during Purchaser Order Entry. This comment prints on the purchase order when selected during transaction entry.
Copying purchase orders You can create new purchase orders by copying existing ones. Change orders When changes are made to open purchase orders, the system prompts you to generate a change order. When you create a change order, the system requires you to enter a reason for the change. The system keeps a record of all the changes made to a purchase order.
Receipt of Invoice Use the Receipt of Invoice process to record the activity of receiving invoices for items that have been ordered using a purchase order generated in the Purchase Order module. Processing multiple invoices against a receipt Apply multiple invoices against a single receipt.
Print Receiving Tickets Before processing receipts, use Print Receiving Tickets to list the items you received, quantity received, receipt unit of measure, and associated receipt weights and volumes for items you expect to receive based on the original purchase or transfer order. Receipt of Goods Use Process Receipt of Goods to record the receipt of items that you ordered using the Purchase Order task or of items transferred from another warehouse.
Vendor performance tracking Enter information about the quality of the delivery by using the Vendor Performance button during receipt of goods. Use the button on the Header tab to enter information about the whole delivery. For information about a specific item, use the button on the Lines tab. Return of Goods Return of Goods functionality enables you to track the return of goods to vendors.
Voucher Based Accounting Purchase Order assigns a unique number to each purchase order, blanket purchase order, requisition, and batch. After posting receipts, Accounts Payable is used to enter vouchers. Voucher numbers, coupled with the vendor’s invoice numbers, provide an easy-to-follow audit trail while preventing duplicate entries of invoices, receipts, and returns. Department Override Options Enhance your ability to track expenses by department or location with the vendor class override and batch override features in Accounts Payable. This feature allows you to override specific General Ledger account segments during data entry with values assigned to department. This set of features: allows for flexible expense allocation, provides the basis for enhanced reporting capabilities, eliminates extra setup tasks while giving you complete account allocation flexibility.
Automated Processes Purchase Order simplifies batch processing and purchase order entry by automatically calculating sales taxes, discounts, and due dates. Automatic GL Distribution Automatically distribute purchase order amounts to the appropriate General Ledger accounts.
Currency Conversion Automatically convert currencies based on vendor exchange rate schedule. Batch Processing Process batches quickly and easily. Process multiple batches simultaneously for receipts of goods, receipts of invoices, and returns of goods.
Audit Trail Options Printed reports and registers provide a complete audit trail of detail activity before posting. You can retain detail postings for an unlimited number of years, as well as monthly summaries. Multiyear History Retention Historical and transactional storage of purchase order and requisition data allow you more insight into year-to-year comparisons, trends, and analysis.
Future Period Posting Post to an unlimited number of future or fiscal years or reopen a past year, and specify the fiscal year to use for printing Purchase Order reports. Fiscal Calendar You can change the fiscal calendar in the General Ledger module and all Purchase Order history reflects the new calendar.
Report Data Exchange All Purchase Order reports can export data to an external file. Data types supported include ASCII text, delimited, DIF™, Excel, Lotus™ 1-2-3™, HTML, rich text format (.RTF), Seagate Crystal Reports for Sage MAS 500 (.RPT), or Microsoft Word files. Intercompany Capabilities By selecting Allow Intercompany in Set Up AP Options, you can enter purchase orders and receipts for target companies throughout Purchase Order. Some reports, such as the Expected Delivery Report, allow you to view purchasing information for a specific target company.
Inventory Capabilities If you have Inventory Management module, you can define an unlimited number of warehouses. Enter and receive both inventory and noninventory items into a specific warehouse. Calculate lead times on purchase orders, which reflect the time from purchase order creation until the time you receive the material into the specified warehouse. Multicurrency Capabilities With Multicurrency Management module, you can enter and process purchase orders in the company’s home currency or any other natural currency in use by the company.

Integration With Other Sage MAS 500 Modules
You can use Purchase Order with General Ledger only or integrated with additional modules.
Accounts Payable You must have the Accounts Payable module to operate Purchase Order. Select to integrate Purchase Order with Accounts Payable in Set Up PO Options. You need Accounts Payable in order to perform the following Purchase Order tasks: match invoices to purchase orders, validate vendor information and check vendor credit limits during purchase order entry, pay your vendors for the items that you purchased, and create debit memos through Accounts Payable during returns processing. Inventory Management If you have the Inventory Management module, use Set Up PO Options to integrate Purchase Order with Inventory Management. You can use this integration to perform the following tasks: inventory Management accepts pending and posted receipt of goods transactions as well as return transactions from Purchase Order, purchase Order passes lead time and historical information to Inventory Management, and Purchase Order accesses item cost information from Inventory Management during purchase order entry.
General Ledger General Ledger is required to run Purchase Order. When you integrate General Ledger with Purchase Order, the chart of account information that you enter in General Ledger becomes available. The system uses those account numbers to define accounts that Purchase Order uses. Cash Management If you have the Cash Management module, you can include open purchase orders in the Daily Cash Flow Projections Report and the Periodic Cash Flow Projections Report.
Manufacturing If the Manufacturing module is integrated with Sage MAS 500, you can have purchase orders automatically assigned to specific work orders at receiving using the Auto Issue feature. Multicurrency Management If you have the Multicurrency Management module, use Set Up MC Options to integrate with the Purchase Order module. Setup controls a user’s right to modify the amount of a purchases order. Otherwise, the exchange rate is fixed at the rate specified in the schedule assigned to the transaction. The system also supports currency cross-rate derivation.

Vendor Performance Report
Use the Vendor Performance Report to evaluate vendor customer service.

Standard Cost Analysis
Use this report to compare the purchase price for each item on the purchase order against the standard cost of the item. This report is a useful management tool for reviewing the items that you purchase above or below standard costs. Include only those items with variances greater than a certain amount or percent.

Tagged Orders Report
Use the Tagged Orders report to display tagged sales and purchase orders. Tagged orders are non-drop ship orders that are linked together allowing you to designate received items to fill specific sales orders. This is a manual function and informational only.
