1.  Sage 300 Purchasing Module

Posted 04-20-2017 08:50
Does anyone using Sage 300 also use the purchasing module? If so, do you also use it in tandem with Timberscan? We currently use Timberscan and are moving to using the purchasing module. Was curious if anyone had experience with the module. Thanks,

A few years ago we implemented Purchasing (PO) and Inventory  (IV) for Sage 300.  We had a few hiccups and the modules have a few bugs, most notably: subcontractors pay apps cannot be processed through purchasing.   Issue had to be escalated to top tier tech support,  and then we found out that Sage has no intention of fixing the issue (since must users don't subscribe to PO and even less would have subs pay apps to process.)   These modules are a poorly planned afterthought to Sage 300.   Second piece of advice  don't cut corners on the consulting time during implementation, find a Sage 300 consultant you can work with first, then purchase the modules.   However for us, these modules are a huge improvement from using excel!

Jordan, thanks so much for your response. Another quick question. How do you handle pricing of the POs/material? Do you have it loaded into the IV/PO database?
