Suppliers is a core module in Baseplan Enterprise that integrates with other transactional areas. The Supplier Master contains complete supplier and subcontractor information, including banking and insurance details, payment methods, exchange rates for overseas suppliers, contacts and more.
The integration with Purchase Orders and Stock modules allows POs to be created for preferred suppliers automatically after reorder plans are generated.
Multiple supplier invoices can be entered to the system and posted to the relevant General Ledger accounts at the same time. Standing invoices can be created for ongoing commitments, such as equipment leases or rental payments, eliminating the need to create new invoices with the same details.
Each supplier can be configured with their preferred payment method such as, BPAY, Automatic Cheque Processing, EFT, Credit Card, Direct Debit and Manual Cheque. This method is used when posting payments for the supplier during payments runs. For example, the EFT Processing procedure identifies suppliers with this payment method and generates an EFT disk (payment file) that can then be sent to the bank. Regardless of the payment method set up for a supplier, users have the flexibility to create and post manual supplier payments.
