Today we'd like to talk about how distributors handle the challenge of having multiple lines of product. Most distributors deal with a wide range of products but are also required to manage those sales and report that information back to the companies from where they purchased the product.
When making those deliveries, they are also often asked to "do business as" or appear to their clients to be that company they are representing with those products. For instance, they may need to create invoices under their own business when delivering one line of product, but when they deliver another line of product, they may need to create an invoice for that manufacturer or whoever they contracted with to handle the delivery side.
In these cases, those invoices need to have different header information (name, address, phone, website, etc.) and unique logos. It is entirely possible that the distributor may not even handle the accounts receivable on those particular deliveries.
If this is the situation that you face in your business, bMobile has a solution for you! Part of the feature set in bMobile Route Manager allows you to assign vendors and vendor classes. This feature can be set up in order to produce unique invoices separate from your normal invoice. You can assign either customers or inventory items to these classes to assure that you are creating the right invoice under the right circumstances.
These features and several more give power to using vendors in bMobile. Whether you need to "roll up" your sales information to your accounting or not show it at all on your books, using vendors is a powerful tool to controlling how your sales are delivered and recorded. If you want to know more about how to utilize vendors in your bMobile Route Manager system, just give us a call and we'll be happy to show you how to get better control over your sales!
