We have one vendor that supplies three brands to us…do you use one vendor page and then some sort of category classification to help with the different brands?
What is the impact of the various brands they supply? How does brand affect your data and/or reporting?
We’d like to be able to issue one purchase order, or at least pay one vendor in a single check for multiple brands. Think about Coca Cola — if we carried stock from Powerade, Vitaminwater, Sprite — different enough to want to a degree of separation when ordering inventory or classification, but the same “vendor. “
You can use different vendor codes for different items at the same vendor I believe.
Say for example you have item ‘A’ (we’ll call it a Water Bottle in this example) in your inventory items, you can add vendor codes for that item for when you order with a purchase order for example.
Will you have multiple brands at both the supplier end and yours? How would this look when it comes to your system, are you on-selling as a single item or multiple different items?
As above it all depends on how you want to report on the brand data?
You could have all of the brands under one supplier then add a classification to identify between the brands but if you could supply more detail
