Suggested orders

While placing an order with a supplier, you can ask the system to suggest the products and quantities that you will need to get you through until your next order.

A suggested order will consider your recent sales as the primary factor to determine what you need to order. If you would prefer to set your own PAR levels against each product see PAR level orders.

To place a suggested order, after starting an order and selecting a supplier, click Suggest order products

The system will populate the order with all of the products that you order from the selected supplier and will add quantities based on:

  • The sales you made in the previous period, with the period being determined by the order interval set for that supplier
  • The amount you have in stock 
  • The minimum stock you have set against each product

The system takes your recent sales, deducts what you already have in stock, and adds your minimum stock figure (the figure you never want to go lower than), to come up with an order that should see you through to your next order, assuming the sales are similar to the comparison period.

Your minimum stock figure acts as a contingency if your sales are higher than the week that the order is based on.
