A multi-module management system designed by ABS—American Business Systems.
ABS Wholesale Distribution processes standard, blanket and factory direct orders, quotes, transfers, credit memos, customer payments, and RMAs. It also tracks serialized and lot numbered products from product receipt through customer invoicing.
Automatic P/Os interfaces with ABS Wholesale Distribution and provides the option to re-order an item during order entry whenever there is an insufficient quantity to fill the order.Items not re-ordered at this time are either backordered or deleted from the order.
All P/Os created in W/D are automatically passed to the ABS Purchase Order module where they can be edited prior to being released.
ABS Contract Prices P.E.P. Pack® interfaces with the ABS Wholesale Distribution System and allows the wholesaler to set unique pricing for any customer or for selected customer groups.
Prices can also be copied from customer to customer.
ABS Counter Sales P.E.P. Pack® interfaces with the ABS Wholesale Distribution System to allow the wholesaler to create a low-cost POS solution to service walk-in retail customers.
Counter Sales turns any workstation into a customer checkout location.
Forms Designer interfaces with ABS Wholesale Distribution and allows the user to custom design W/D invoices and picking tickets.
When you design a custom form, you specify the size of the form, select the type of information (fields and labels) you want on the form, then indicate the exact position (line and column) on the form where you want that information to be printed.
As you design a form, the program displays it on the screen so you can what you’ve created. You can quickly reposition a field up or down, left or right, or to another column or line.
A time-saving Copy feature allows you to use an existing format for the basis of creating a new one.
Inventory Control is one of the 5 major processing functions in the ABS Wholesale Distribution System. (The others are Order Entry, Customer Invoicing, Sales Analysis, and Physical Inventory Maintenance.)
Inventory is automatically maintained whenever an order or a receipt is processed. The system can keep track of inventory in up to 999 warehouses or stores.
It also shows quantities in-stock, on order, in-transit, on backorder, reserved, manual reserved, on layaway and more–per warehouse and company wide.
The system also monitors any stock out date and the number of days out of stock, average, standard and last costs, plus period and YTD statistics for quantities sold, average cost and quantities returned to stock or for credit.
Product IDs can be up to 18 characters with 40-character descriptions and multiple UPC codes.
The Physical Inventory Maintenance function keeps track of inventory transfers, receipts, counts and shortages. It also lets you reprice and reclassify inventory quickly and efficiently.
ABS Kit Processing P.E.P. Pack® interfaces with ABS Wholesale Distribution. It lets you create and define kits–products comprised of multiple components–then transfer completed kits to the Inventory File. On-the-fly and custom kits are supported.
Kit Processing includes an Anticipated Margin Report so you can quickly project potential margins by average, standard or last cost.
Order Entry is one of the 5 major processing functions in the ABS Wholesale Distribution System. (The others are Inventory Control, Customer Invoicing, Sales Analysis, and Physical Inventory Maintenance.)
The O/E component processes 8 order types: standard orders, blanket orders, quotes, transfers, factory direct orders, credit memos, customer payments and RMAs.
All these features are designed to help your order entry personnel process orders for your customers with speed, efficiency and accuracy. Several ABS P.E.P. Pack® modules can be used with Order Entry. They include Automatic Purchase Orders, Counter Sales (POS), and Multi-Location Order Fulfillment.
ABS Order Fulfillment P.E.P. Pack® interfaces with ABS Wholesale Distribution and is designed for companies that need the ability to fill customer orders from multiple warehouses, including the ability to fill a partial quantity from one location and the balance from others.
With Order Fulfillment you can review inventory levels before you assign orders, fill orders faster by splitting item quantities, and monitor products you need to immediately re-order. Order Fulfillment also supports the release of products stored at vendor warehouses.
The system automatically creates orders for each warehouse from which products are taken to eliminate double entry.
ABS R/F Bar Code is an optional software product that interfaces with any of 3 ABS inventory modules: Wholesale Distribution, Purchase Order, and Point of Sale.
R/F Bar Code is a real-time solution. All information entered on the hand-held terminal instantly updates the Inventory File in ABS W/D, P/O or POS. This eliminates the need to download the data to your PC.
Here’s how the system works. From the ABS workstation, you set a series of defaults for physical inventory functions, such as counting inventory. The defaults identify the ABS data entry fields employees must complete to perform the function. When an employee performs a fuinction, the required fields are displayed on the hand-held terminal to instruct the employee–step by step–what information to enter to complete the task.
The R/F terminal transmits the scanned or keyed data to a base station, then to your host computer.
ABS Remote Processing P.E.P. Pack® interfaces with ABS Wholesale Distribution and Point of Sale. It lets companies with multiple warehouses and/or stores transfer sales, inventory and receivables data from remote locations to the corporate (hub) processing center, to download data from the hub to satellite locations, and to transfer data between locations.
Remote Processing supports up to 999 locations.
