Ordoro keeps track of your inventory. Anytime you ship an order, Ordoro will automatically reduce the physical on hand quantity for the item(s) shipped. Running low on stock? Ordoro will alert you on low stock items so that you can purchase them in advance before running out of stock. It’s really that easy to avoid stock outs!
Buying more items is now a breeze. Once you set up your supplier data, you can begin issuing purchase orders to them through Ordoro. Just click on ‘REORDER’ , enter the quantity you want to order, select your supplier, and warehouse you want them shipped to. An email with your purchase order is automatically sent to your supplier.
Once you receive the goods, click on ‘Create a Goods Receipt’ button and record the received items which will automatically increase the physical on hand quantity for those items.
Ordoro can manage the quantities of your products to sync with your shopping cart. When your orders are downloaded to Ordoro, it takes one click of a button to send updated numbers back to your cart.
