stock flow icon


Stock flow provides ETA management at an integrated stock line level view of stock on purchase orders and linked jobs. This provides a single view of the expected delivery date from a vendor, and the job due date advised to your customers.


Select the Stock Flow icon to run a list which will show everything on order, what jobs are for whom, and due dates, along with the related job.


The list can be filtered in several ways, depending on the search criteria entered.


For example, enter a Vendor# to filter by the list for a specific Vendor, Cust# to filter by a specific customer, etc.


Right clicking on any row in the list displays a pop out menu for quick access to the related PO and/or job.
