Users can generate purchase orders using MobiPOS CloudSync.
This feature allows users to create a purchase order.
Once created, the purchase order can be emailed or downloaded.
When the order or item is received from the supplier, users will need to edit the order on how many quantities received along with the price if there are any changes.
When everything is received and done, mark the purchase order as completed, and inventory in the POS system will be updated accordingly.
To use the purchase order function, please log in to CloudSync.
First, users will need to create the supplier’s profile.
Go to Stocks -> Supplier.
At the top right corner, click on Add Supplier.
Then, fill in the supplier’s information as shown below and click Save at the bottom left.
Next, go to Stocks -> Purchase Order.
At this page, it will show all the purchase order created previously.
The status of the purchase order will be shown, and users will be able to edit the purchase order under the Action column.

Then, in the Estimated Date of Arrival column, insert the date when the user wish the items to be delivered.
However, the actual date of arrival is not confirmed until the supplier confirm the availability.
After that, select the items to order.
Qty column will show the current inventory of the selected items in the branch.
Insert the quantity that you wish to order from the supplier under Qty to Order.

Upon receiving the order, the user is required to login back into CloudSync and search for the purchase order created previously.
