Having a smooth special-order process is essential for sales growth and customer loyalty. You can easily create a special-order PO during a point of sale transaction or copy quoted items into a PO. Special items are pulled in from a vendor catalog or created via a system-generated temporary SKU number. All documents related to the customer order, from the PO to the inventory receipt, are all connected and available in the software. No more frantic phone calls or searching through paper files to find information on special orders!
Receiving inventory and reconciling items doesn’t have to be a painful or tedious process. With RockSolid MAX, you can simply scan items off the truck and automatically reconcile with the PO. If there are any charges (freight adders, tarp charges, fuel surcharges, etc.) not included on the original PO, you can easily enter them while finalizing the receipt. RockSolid MAX helps reduce accounting questions, as all the receiving information is connected and automatically documented in the system.
Historical data combined with intelligent automation improves the return on your inventory investment. RockSolid MAX can help accurately determine min/max quantities, which saves time, reduces shelf space and back stock, and improves inventory turns. Plus, you can override volatile commodities based on the market, your expertise, and the historical data in the system.
What our customers are saying
If we’re doing a full inventory, all we have to do is go out on the floor, scan the items, and enter quantities into the system. And we don’t need to close the store to do it.
RAILROAD AVENUE SUPPLY COMPANY
Before we switched, it would probably take me 8–10 hours every week to input my order from Orgill when it came in so that I would have the most current inventory in the system. From day one with RockSolid MAX, I could do that literally in less than five minutes.
A busy day in the store might have had me staying until 11 o’clock at night to put an order together in time. Now, I can take my tablet home and do it all at the kitchen table over a cup of coffee.
We’re not only getting people through the checkout a whole lot faster but handling special orders and requests for non-stock items is so much easier than it used to be before we switched to RockSolid MAX.
IMOC BUILDING AND SUPPLIES
With RockSolid MAX, you can follow the paper trail on an order very easily, and that’s particularly helpful for special orders. You can track everything from the initial quote all the way through to the sale.
Our inventory is becoming better because of RockSolid MAX. Our tracking and receiving are better, and because we can access the system from anywhere through the cloud, I’m spending less time at the store.
ZINK BUILDING CENTER
Every time you do a special order in RockSolid MAX, it generates its own SKU with the product info and pricing all locked in. That’s not only made it so much easier to handle recurring special item orders for products we don’t stock, it’s also given us far more control of our margins.
