procurement confirmation wizard

Procurement confirmation is a function that assists users in automatically creating one or several procurement documents, such as purchase quotations, purchase orders, or production orders, directly from one or several sales orders. Procurement documents created using this function can include part or all of the items from the sales order(s). However, you cannot use the procurement confirmation function to assign items to existing purchasing documents or as a tool to guarantee sales order fulfilment by reserving items in the warehouse, for example.

Use the wizard to do one of the following:

  • Consolidate/Combine multiple sales orders into one purchase order

  • Create a purchase order directly from a sales order

  • Consolidate multiple sales orders for production purposes

  • Create a production order directly from a sales order

10. Multiple price list functionality

price lists

SAP Business One lets you create different price lists for items, giving you the flexibility to offer your customers customised prices. This could be for volume discounts, loyalty pricing etc.

During the creation of sales and purchasing documents, SAP Business One derives item prices directly from a price list that is linked to your client/customer. This price list can be linked by default from your clients/customer group or from the business partner's payment terms, or can be selected manually in your client/customer master data. When you add a business transaction for client/customer, the price of the item is determined by the assigned price list.

SAP Business One provides 10 default price lists for you to use. You can use from any to all 10 of them. You can define new price lists and delete existing ones. You can also link different price lists to one another using multiplication factors. In each price list you can define up to three prices with different currencies for each item. Maintaining different price lists for items makes it possible to set special prices and  quantity-dependent discounts in each one, thereby letting you offer your customers customised prices.
