Editing Inventory Suppliers Details ( Part Number, Qty/Order, Cost/Order):

The “Suppliers” section shows the Primary and any Secondary suppliers for this item.  Each supplier will have a Part Number that is used when you create an order.  Ie Supplier #1’s part number for a NRB Adult is “12345” while Supplier #2’s part number for a NRB Adult is “88888”.  When an order is created for Supplier #1 to order items, the Supplier’s part number will be shown on the order.

Each supplier also has a “Qty/Order” field.  When you order 1 order of NRB Adults from this supplier, you will might receive 50 masks.  This field tells the inventory when you are below the par level by 100 NRBs, then you need 100 divided by 50 = 2 Orders.

Each supplier also has a “Cost/Order” field.  This allows you track the cost for each order so you can compare one supplier to another.  By keeping the cost per order field updated, you will also notice when a supplier changes their cost since your order cost/total will be different.

To Edit a supplier Part Number, Qty/Order, or Cost/Order, click the Pencil icon next to any of the supplier fields.
