As standard Saffron enables orders to be placed via email, fax and or phone with a unique purchase order reference which, once confirmed, forms the base against which deliveries and invoices are matched and to improve efficiency and accuracy this process can be managed using Saffron Connect Devices.

Should variances on pricing and/or quantities received be found Saffron will amend the relevant information e.g. actual quantities going into stock and create draft credit notes.
