Deliver class-leading ordering tools aimed at supporting merchants to close more business whilst providing customers with all of the options they need.
- Quotation System
Online quote request and convert to order operating either independently or in conjunction with an ecommerce basket. Merchants can drive quotes from call centre, set specific pricing and then push to customers via my account and email that they can convert to an order.
- Back Orders
Access full details of any back orders by searching through them based on customer, company, order or product. Enable various actions to be executed based on any changes to the status of that back order, including sending an email to the customer when the status changes or there's an increment/decrement of the items they are waiting for.
- Vendor Managed Inventory
Enables customers to maintain an agreed inventory of products at any and each of their locations and deliver simple replenishment when the stock holding falls below the agreed threshold. When the merchant undertakes a stock check any shortfall is then ordered online against that location and account, at an agreed timescale.
- Price List Manager
Merchants can set the % value (₊/-) against parent price lists for products, product groups and customers. The engine auto calculates the child pricing and assigns. Can also apply delivery costs, discounts, offer bands, gift options and advert basket price conditions across price lists or on a currency level.
- Minimum Order Quantities
It's not always viable for businesses to sell some items in low volume. Set a minimum order quantity for any product as well as adding rules and workflows around alerting customers to this, and managing stock based on these restrictions.
- Quantity Breaks
Incentivise your trade customers to spend more by offering quantity based discounts per product. This enables you to lower the unit cost based on the amount they buy (e.g. 1-9 for £12 each, >10 for £10 each).

Saved baskets, quick order pad and regularly ordered items meaning re-ordering is quick and easy.
- Quantity Steps
Each product can be sold in fixed quantities (e.g. 5, 10, 15) with workflows and rules to alert customers and manage stock.

Integration with services such as vatlayer.com enable you to validate the authenticity of VAT numbers during checkout.
