It's New

Bypassing Negative Inventory

 Advance orders can be booked for items or services for which inventory does not exist in the system, or, in other words, there is negative inventory for the orders being booked. Now even if sale is blocked for negative inventory, the system will allow you to book orders against negative inventory.

Advance Amount Restriction

 While booking orders you can set advance amount limit. This means to be able to book an order the customer will have to pay a certain percentage of the total price of the goods or services.

 Super User Authority for Bypassing Advance Amount Restriction

 If you want to, you can bypass advance amount restrict for certain customers by creating a super user.

New Advance Order Reports

C-70 Advance Order Summary Report provides complete details of order numbers, products or services ordered, delivery date, and delivery status.

C-71 Advance Order Summary Report  provides customer-wise details about order status, amount paid in advance, and delivery dates.
