Purchase orders - Unit cost from part prices or supplier prices & supplier product code

Purpose: PO’s prices should be correct when sending to the supplier. Understanding where these prices are populated from and how they will be stored added and updated within Commusoft can help maintain a more accurate and regularly updated price list.

 

Please note:

  • This applies to PO's created manually on a supplier and on a job.
  • Only for PO's with line item type ‘Parts’.
  • Supplier stored price supersedes stored based price when available on a PO.
  • PO unit cost used on saving will be stored as supplier price within parts and prices when the price is not stored.
  • PO unit cost used on saving will update supplier price within parts and prices if different to the current stored price.
  • Updates to prices are for supplier-related prices and not base prices.
  • PO pdf will show ‘Supplier product code’ over ‘Manufacturers part number’ when available.
