In my previous post I wrote about compressing standard location, movement and counting into a single process in Dynamics AX 2012. Today I wanted to show that the my PDA solution also can save time in purchase and sales scenario’s. If there is one thing we all like so save, it is time. So to save time, some PDA features has been implemented to speed up processes, but still maintaining on hands accurately. So this post is about making life easier for those companies, that don’t need or want to have more advanced WMS capabilities and features.
1. Create a sales order, and pick it in the same operation.
This scenario is typically used in a retail scenario, where a store employee walks together with the customer, and creating sales order AND pick it while they are collecting the items. Then the last step is just to invoice the order. In this scenario, it means that the locations are updated in real-time.
2. Create a purchase order, and register it in the same operation.
This scenario is more common than you think. People is ordering goods, but they don’t create a purchase order. Not exactly best practice, but is surely happens. Here the receiver can build up and receive the goods in one single operation. Scan item barcode, specify location and quantity, and the purchase order is created, and placed into the warehouse.
In the solution there are off course the possibilities for other scenario’s, as can be seen in the Sales and Purchase menus.
Happy Daxing, and my next post will cover the new features for production on PDA. Here is a silent preview:
