Purchase centrally in case of multiple warehouses

The central purchasing takes place using order proposals. When generating an order proposal, the entire stock, irrespective of the warehouse, is included in the calculation of, for example, the stock to be replenished. The purchase orders that you generate from these order proposals are always delivered to the central warehouse.

  1. Go to: Order Management / Management / Settings.
  2. Go to the tab: Stock.


  3. Select the Central purchasing check box.
  4. In Warehouse central purchasing, select the warehouse to which the orders must be delivered.
  5. Click on: OK

  4. Enter another sales order for a different warehouse.
