Available Items

Food Distributors need to be able to create orders quickly and efficiently. Available Items allows the user to shop for a list of lots that can be filtered on, e.g. location, expiration date, and more.

Order Guide

With inecta's Order Guide feature, Food and Beverage Industry Distributors can automate and enhance the sales order process by creating a catalog of items most frequently purchased by the customer or designated items sold to that customer.
