Journal entries, as well as accruals for future periods are then applied individually or as a group. Predefined closing entries can be stored for repetitive use and can be automatically reversed in the next period. All subsidiary modules automatically feed the GL for timely, on-line, and accurate financial reports. All activity modifying the General Ledger is stored in journals and identified by source, post date, and journal entry number. This allows extensive reporting capability and complete audit trails.

The Inter-Facility Transfer (IFT) System is designed for companies with multiple warehouses that are physically separated from each other. Companies need the ability to easily and efficiently transfer inventory between multiple facilities. These companies also need the ability to track the goods being transferred while they are in transit, and to control when the amounts being transferred are received into the system. This is important because the system uses inventory on hand quantities for purchasing and other processes, and there may be a substantial amount of time between the shipment of the goods out of the source warehouse and the subsequent receipt of the goods in the destination warehouse.
Inventory control is the cornerstone of any distribution, reseller and retail business and is essential to profitable operations.

The information that is created and maintained with the Product Management System is used throughout the Stream Applications, and in many cases, determines how each item is handled by the system during transaction processing.
The Supply Chain is possibly the single most important feature to a Manufacturing or Assembly Business. Replenishing your inventory before goods run out with ERP SaaS is Efficient and Easy. The SaaS ERP Software Purchasing module is designed to automate the process of correctly, and efficiently, replenishing inventory as orders are placed and inventory is shipped to meet customer demand. The need for ordering inventory can come from many areas: customer demand for products not in stock, the entry of orders exceeding available inventory, usage driving inventory levels below predefined minimums, and the preparation for future sales or production runs.

Our ERP SaaS supports the use of RF Devices in order to access your data real time from anywhere in your warehouse. Real time access allows you staff to continuously have accurate information, even when they are not near a workstation. The use of RF Devices eliminates the need for printing paper documentation and speeds up the handling of materials in the warehouse. The primary function of RF Devices is to expedite the processing of warehouse transactions. These transactions include; inventory receipt, serial number capture, bin transfer, sales order picking, shop order pulls and inventory counting.
Multiple physical warehouses can be maintained from a single, centralized data location. Automated scales can be configured to interface with the system so that, as boxes roll down the rolling stock, they pass over the scale that transmits the box weight directly into the manifest. No more problems with incorrect weights on the billing audits.
The ERP SaaS Business Accounting Software Module, Special Pricing offers multiple pricing methods to support the wide variety of ways that companies do business with their customers. These pricing methods are based on the variables that are most commonly used to establish a customers price for a particular product. The basic variables used are who the customer is, what type of customer they are, the item they are ordering, how many, and the date.
Vendor shipping is an essential part of the Virtual Warehousing paradigm. Imagine having the ability to ship goods directly to your customer's dock from your vendor's warehouse. This capability is built into SaaS ERP Stream Vaast. Cove Systems, Inc. calls these shipment types Vendor Ships. This integration of these transactions avoids faux transactions being entered in your inventory file for shipments that never touch your shipping dock. Many systems require an entry into and out of your inventory file to record these transactions. SaaS ERP allows tracking these transactions for later 3 Way Matching in the AP system, without recording the inventory movement. 3 Way Matching requires all trade invoices to have a matching PO and Receiving Document in order to be processed in AP.
Inventory control is the cornerstone of any distribution business and it is essential to profitable Distribution, Assembly, Manufacturing, and Wholesale operations. Critical in managing inventory levels to control your company's budget and resources, is the ability to analyze data quickly and efficiently. To do this, the ERP SaaS Warehouse Management System (WMS) maintains the most accurate, easy to access, real-time inventory available today.
