Creating vendor orders
At the end of each inventory period, Bar Cop recalculates your dynamic par levels based on product usage. The par levels are then used to automatically calculate vendor orders for you. *At this point you should already have your par multiplier set and and par adjustments made in order setup.
Once in "Create Vendor Orders", you can see your complete product list and a breakdown of order quantities to bring your stock back up to the calculated order par levels with estimated pricing (based on the current cost in product setup).
If you do not see your establishment name and address (will be on top of Excel or PDF export to send to your vendor), this information can be entered on the dashboard under business profile. You can also enter the order date if needed.Once your establishment name and order date are entered, it's time to create your vendor orders. To do this, you will filter your product list by vendor name.
Filtering by vendors is easy.
To start, click the drop-down arrow on the right side of the "Filter Products By Vendor" header. In the drop down box, you will see all of your vendor names checked.
Next, uncheck "Select All" and recheck the vendor name that you want to create an order for. You can also order "Add-ons" by entering products that you need to order from a specific vendor that are not being tracked, by entering that product information in the order add-on section. Recheck "Order Add-On" with the vendor name to include in the final order. Lastly, click "OK".
That vendor order is now ready.
You can export the order to your computer in PDF format (or Excel) to easily email to your vendor or you can highlight and print orders that need to be faxed (see printing inventory data).
