Purchase Order Summary

Inventory :: Purchasing

Topic Overview

A Purchase Order, sometimes referred to as a PO, is an order for goods to be purchased at a pre-determined price and time from a supplier or distributor.  Purchase Orders are typically printed or saved from RICS to be sent to the supplier or Distributor.  Purchase Orders can also be transmitted electronically for select suppliers.



The retailer must have established Classes, Suppliers and SKUs stored in RICS prior to placing a Purchase Order.

If utilizing electronic Purchase Orders, supplier UPCs must be entered into your product catalog.

What is the difference between creating a Purchase Order and an Automatic Purchase Order?

Automatic Purchase Orders are also generated by the user. However, RICS Enterprise determines what items should be placed on the order based on Model Stock or Sales.
