Acumen Order Processing
ACUMEN Order Processing
Discover new business opportunities and solve some of the publishing industry's most difficult challenges with Acumen Books.
The Order Processing system is fully integrated with other parts of the system—Invoices are tied to Customer records and when they post ACUMEN updates inventory and sales history, calculates royalties, and credits customer AR. When a product is not in stock, you have the option to create a Back Order. When you enter a Customer Name in an Invoice ACUMEN prompts you is there are any in-stock Back Orders for them. You have the option to load the BO items in the new Invoice. You can set up Standing Orders to help automate ordering for some customers. If a customer returns a product, you can tie the Credit Memo to the original Invoice and can assign the inventory as good, damaged, or dead. When you create a Receipt for an open account Customer ACUMEN loads all of their open AR (e.g., Invoices, open credits) into that record and you can apply the payment to one or more items. This integration helps assure accuracy in related areas of the system. It also gives you access to detailed reporting from different areas of ACUMEN.
