Purchasing Management

Whether you have one warehouse or dozens, Prophet 21 distribution software centralises the purchasing process so you can optimise buying power and inventory levels. Choose from a variety of purchasing scenarios—including substitutions, discontinued items, drop ships, and specials. Prophet 21 software also supports overseas procurement, so you can protect your margins by knowing the true landed cost of foreign shipments—including tax, broker fees and handling charges. Plus, you can track container shipments and update the status and due dates of all purchase orders along the way.

Advanced Demand Forecasting

The Prophet 21 solution’s Advanced Demand Forecasting feature helps take the guesswork out of ordering the right amount of inventory. Prophet 21 uses an intuitive system of industry-proven weighted averages, standard reports, graphical views, and user-defined formulas to identify the unique demand pattern of every item you stock. The Prophet 21 system also automatically detects seasonal or trending items so you can meet customers’ needs.
