Sage X3 Distribution
Sage X3 distribution functionality is comprised of Sales, Purchasing, and Inventory.
Sage ERP X3 Sales enables you to monitor all information concerning customers or prospects, manage sales force assignments, and monitor corresponding targets and commissions. The sales capabilities within Sage ERP X3 provide a quick look at information concerning products, price lists, discounts, or carriers, among others. You can issue customer quotations, book orders and transmit order acknowledgements, manage contracts, display and allocate goods from stock, and manage the dispatch and loan of goods prior to invoicing.
Sage ERP X3 Purchasing covers the purchasing process from end to end, starting with management of requests for quotes (RFQs), input and follow-up of replies, and integration into the price list base. This is followed by purchase requests, orders raised and delivery monitoring, subcontract orders, buyer workloads, and management of signature circuits through to incoming goods reception and verification of invoices.
Additionally, analytical tools are used to monitor exchanges with suppliers to meet the objectives of the purchasing department in terms of quality assurance, compliance with delivery dates, and purchase cost.
Integration into the accounting system is automatic through preliminary and firm commitments. This provides operational budget control from purchase requests to the issue of orders. Actual data is integrated automatically through management of invoices receivable and definitive invoices. Accounting procedures involving averaging of expenses in relation to service provision periods are also available.
Sage ERP X3 Inventory ensures optimum coherence and real-time monitoring of inventory status data. Inventory control is fully user-definable on each site with the application of the multisite, multi-warehouse and multi-location management. The inventory capabilities of Sage ERP X3 also incorporate powerful quality control (QC) functions, also providing for total traceability of inventory quantities in real time, both upstream and downstream, by material flow management.
In addition to the inherent distribution functionality of Sage ERP X3, the seamless integration with Sage ERP X3 Shipping, efficiently manages the shipping process using the best rates to get products into the hands of customers quickly. It helps streamline shipping activities for all parcel carriers, truck load and less than truckload (LTL) shipments, and company vehicles. Offering easy and secure methods to deploy either on-premise or in the cloud, Sage ERP X3 Shipping manages your shipping processes all the way to the printed labels, and originates shipments from the USA or Canada.
Business Partners and Products
Sage ERP X3 Sales accesses the latest data about business partners and products. Sold-to, ship-to, bill-to, and pay-by information is standard on sales documents while customer productlevel information can be accessed to assure a personalized, customer-driven order entry environment. Supporting information—such as product substitutes and supersessions, notes, previous orders and prices, and special customer packaging—can either be displayed automatically or by user request. Sage ERP X3 also supports sales kits with fixed components or as special configurations using variants and options. Shipping functions use customerspecific information to schedule deliveries on the right day and to enforce complete shipments of orders or line items as required.
Flexible Pricing Rules
Sage ERP X3 promotes flexible pricing that helps companies achieve a mix of customer value and profits. By combining key elements from customer and product master data, companies can exploit a wide variety of pricing methods like contracts, promotions, sales channel prices, and variable kit pricing. Special features include the ability to price by groups of lines and to add free products or quantities if predefined thresholds are met. Discounts and charges can be automatically factored into net price or broken out and tracked separately.
