This blog will enlighten you on how the Odoo platform will help you to define efficient product procurement operations for your company with the help of the Odoo purchase module.
Automation is one of the key elements of functioning with Odoo. The developers of Odoo asked the same question of why should we do it manually when we could automate the process? The majority of operations in Odoo are automated and more will be in the future versions of the platform to come. However, the process of operations is in full control of the users as they can modify the data available and change the process. The purchase module of the Odoo platform has been now defined as one of the important modules of business operation. Below are some of the aspects of the purchase module of the Odoo platform for making it one of the best product procurement management software:
Set reordering rules on most moveable products.
The reordering rules for the product are the aspects that can be set in the Odoo platform. This is an imminent feature of the Odoo ERP, which will help you to manage the operations of the product procurement. Moreover, these reordering rules can be set on each product and the criteria for each of the aspects can be defined in the platform and can be further customized.
In addition, defining these reordering rules will ensure that your products are always in stock and the product inventory is auto replenished based on the limits set at the initial stages. Furthermore, you should initially analyze the sales and the product movement out of your store before setting up the reordering rules of operation.
Define and customize various purchase agreements
Purchase agreements are the aspects that will allow you to purchase the products from the vendors based on your predefined agreement of functioning. In Odoo you can mainly define two types of purchase agreements: the call for tender as well as the blanket order type purchase agreement. The call for a tender type of purchase agreement allows the different vendors to submit their tender bits towards you and you can choose the one which is best sustainable for you in terms of various parameters such as money, efficiency, quality, and other internal as well as external factors.
In the case of blamed orders, a large number of products are being described at a fixed price agreement and the products based on this agreement can be procured at different delivery dates with distinctive time intervals of operation. Moreover, this type of purchase agreement is defined because the price on the products will not vary with that of the market and the vendor is bound to provide the defined number of units based on the unit price specified.
Configure and manage product delivery lead times.
The delivery lead times of the products can be defined in the Odoo platform allowing you to plan and prepare for the purchase of the products in advance. The lead times can be assigned for the vendors as well as the products in Odoo which allows you with the further configuration of the days for the product procurement.
Define advanced product management operations such as Drop-shipping
The Odoo platform has the enabling options to define ether drop-shipping operations of the product procurement for the company in the dedicated purchase module. Moreover, by enabling and configuring the drop-shipping feature of company operation the Odoo platform will allow you to effectively manage the purchase of the product from the vendor and directly ship it to the customer which will bring them into the facility. This will cast out the loading and unloading cost of the products, usage of storage, and further reduce the delivery charges on the products for the customers.
With all the tools that I have mentioned above, you will be able to configure and define the product procurement operations for your company in Odoo as per your requirement and mode of functioning. Moreover, the various dedicated tools available in the Odoo purchase module will ensure that you have effective management of operations in running the purchase operations of the company.
