Order Entry and Purchase Order Management
Food Connex’s system lets you easily manage orders. The simple customizable screen displays historical order information, current inventory availability, and pricing information. Intuitive prompts help you quickly create orders and identify recommended items to increase sales and encourage retention.
Pricing and Invoicing
Profitability management is ensured with consistently applied pricing models. Food Connex automatically handles all complex pricing and discounting procedures, including promos, spoilage allowance, broken case up charges, fuel and delivery charges, contract and chain pricing, etc. User defined roles specify who can and cannot view or change the price and profitability of orders.
Food Connex displays information about available, allocated, and on order product for your staff. With Food Connex, when a customer asks if you stock a specific item, you have immediate access to that information so you no longer have to turn away a sale, or worse fail to deliver on a commitment. Each sales, purchase, and production process automatically updates the inventory information in real-time providing transparency for the entire warehouse.
Lot Tracking, Control and Costing
Food Connex enables users to manage their inventory at the lot level. As a product is being received or manufactured it is assigned a lot number. Working within these lots users can:
- Report on profitability and cost by lot
- Generate Valuation Reports based on received lot costs
- Monitor inventory aging and expiration dates and communicate to the warehouse which lot should be pulled for delivery
- Record additional lot- information such as shellfish tag numbers, country of origin, or grading information
- Track quantity received, amounts in stock, and destination of all quantities sold or used
Integrated Payment Processing
Our best-in-class, seamlessly integrated payment processing solution lets you easily manage all components of your business within one comprehensive platform. Exclusive rates ensure you save on processing fees, and transparent pricing means you’re never left wondering what you’re paying for each month. We also manage interchange rates and include Level II and Level III data with all transactions to ensure you get the lowest rate possible every time.
