Item Bundles

Bundled Items are associated with particular items that are regularly duplicated on a Customer Invoice. It allows you to group multiple items into a single code. When you invoice, you enter the Item Bundle Code and the system adds all items linked to that bundle onto the invoice.

Sales Orders

The Sales Order is an order issued by a business to a customer. A Sales Order is raised when an initial quote is approved, and the transaction is underway. The document specifies the details about products and/or services ordered by a specific customer along with the price, quantity and terms and conditions. Businesses use this as a confirmation document that is send to the customers before delivery of goods or services and in some instances to reserve the specified stock.
