QuoteWerks PO Tracking

For use with: QuoteWerks v4.0 build 17 to v5.3 build 6.06

About the User: This project was commissioned by a client who distributes promotional products and branded merchandise to businesses throughout the UK. As part of any given order for goods, the items on the order may have to be passed through several different Suppliers - the plain product supplier, a printer, embroiderer and/or engraver, and potentially a third supplier to package the item(s) for end customer delivery.

The client had used QuoteWerks for many years and although they had been managing with tracking the Supplier Purchase Orders, in an expanding business they wanted a more robust and systematic solution for this.

Project Brief: To develop an add-on for QuoteWerks which would expand and compliment QuoteWerks’ ‘out of the box’ features to allow Users to track Purchase Orders with Suppliers more accurately and efficiently.
