Vendor grading is an important factor for an organization that have multiple vendors. Vendors are graded by analyzing vendor capability, supply behavior and quality of deliveries etc. Integra ERP provides a mechanism to automatically grade vendors and help to find out preferred vendor for supply of an item.

For calculating vendor grading, supply history of a vendor for a given period is analyzed. In Integra ERP, 8 point criteria has been taken in to consideration such as volume of supply, order delivery ratio, volume per deliveries, promptness of delivery, product pricing, credit facilities, rejection ratio and margin on sales.

In manufacturing sector this document is issued by the godown keeper to the purchase department for procuring raw materials and consumables that comes below the reorder levels or the new one required in the production line. Purchase department will issue relevant purchase order to the vendor after due verification. In case of a trading and distribution concern this purchase indent may be used either by the godown in-charge or by the sales men or sales executive.

The promotional benefits are generally received after the declared period or in the next purchase. Integra ERP provides sufficient mechanism to monitor this back end activities and leaves no space for possible losses or unavailing of such benefits.
Landing cost (Purchase costing)
Additional costs or overheads, like packing charges, freight, insurance, loading and unloading charges etc, incurred on purchase of goods and services are called as landing cost. All such cost will be properly accounted during the purchase itself. By doing this process we can understand the actual stock valuation on landing cost and the net margin received on dealing bill of materials. Manual calculation of landing cost is a very complex process as the proportionate cost has to be charged if there are many items in a purchase bill. The proportion varies according to the product cost and the volume in purchase. Integra ERP automates this process and deals with it in an efficient manner. purchase management inventory management software
