The heart of virtually any business is order processing, and that’s where BusinessVision’s powerful and comprehensive Order Entry module really excels, allowing an unlimited number of orders, quotations, layaways and standing orders, and the automatic or manual backordering of out-of-stock items. Orders draw down both inventory and non-stock/service items immediately, and when invoiced, the system automatically calculates taxes, revenue, cost-of-goods, receivables, etc - posting this vital information directly to the General Ledger. No need to worry about journal entries or debits and credits, because BusinessVision does it all automatically. It even maintains a history of every invoice that has been produced, affording in-depth analysis of sales, margins and profit.
