I purchase the same product from multiple suppliers, but I am forced to have multiple inventory for the same item because it will only input the primary supplier’s item number in my purchase order, if I don’t do this it means I risk accidently sending a PO with the wrong item numbers on it, it also means I have the same item multiple times under slightly different names in the inventory register causing all sorts of problems with things such as Auto build and stock takes.
To solve this if you could add multiple suppliers in item information/Buying Details/ and not just a primary supplier, then you could have a total inventory of an Item regardless of where you brought it from, then if MYOB would automatically show the item number belonging to the supplier you have selected on the PO in your printed/emailed copy instead of your own, allowing the supply company to see their codes etc. on their copy.
In addition to this having the ability to input the supplier’s item name and not just item number as I do not use theirs when I sell an item.
Also if once you have chosen the suppliers name in the PO and you go to add an item, it would be nice to have the choice of only displaying items in the drop down box from that supplier and not hundreds of other items not even available from that company.
I am sure you would have to have some way of averaging the cost of a product when you have purchased it from different suppliers at most likely different costs, but at least if the above changes were applied I could actually start using the inventory section of MYOB to its potential and not have it generate more work for myself.
