Tip of the Week: Using the “Received” tool

“Did we get those?”

We know what it’s like. You receive parts for a job. With multiple projects in production, you have to determine where the products go. So, you find the correct file, mark down what you have and determine where it needs to go. Now the project manager comes in looking for their parts. They have to find where the products went, who received them, etc. Next, the accounting department needs to know when you received the products and if there were any problems. And it keeps going…

Well, we found a way to simplify all of this for you and save you time. When you are logged in to the Alps catalog, you can click on “Past” or “Open” orders and search by P.O number, or date. Next, you simply click the “Receive” button next to the correct P.O. number. In the receive window you can change the quantity received, mark where the items were stored and who received them, and make note of items that need attention. This section can be changed and updated by any user with a login ID in your company.

The accounting department, the project manager, the office administrator, and anyone else you choose can keep track of where your products are, all of the time. That means whether you are in the office, out on the job-site, or anywhere that you have Internet access for that matter, you can update or check your received parts. This tool is an excellent example of how Alps can keep your projects organized and accessible, so that you can get them completed. Below is a video example of how to use the receive button within the catalog. If you have any additional questions, comment below or send us an email. We’d be happy to explain it further.
