Batch Label Printing

What is it?

The ability to mass print labels for multiple products at one time.

Why is it important?

When creating multiple new products or changing the price of multiple products, the ability to print new labels for all those updates is key to reducing all that time spent on printing labels in the first place.

How does this work?

This new feature has been designed to give MEHD users the ability to check off multiple products, even down to specific SKUs, and be able to set the quantity of labels to be printed for those products. All the previous actions such as selecting label type, template type, location, etc. are also still included.

Payment Terms

What is it?

You can now create and add payment terms directly to your customer’s profiles and their invoices.

Why is it important?

As with all payment terms, this tells your clients the amount of time they have or what type of payment is required in order to pay off the invoice whether it’s Net 30, Payment In Advance or Cash on Delivery.

Reordering process

What is it?

An updated reordering process that allows MEHD users to create multiple purchase orders from multiple vendors based on inventory requirements, all in one screen.

Why is it important?

Instead of creating a single purchase order for each vendor every time you would like to reorder and doing that over and over again, now you can create purchase orders all at once, reducing time spent on ordering so you can move on with your day.

How does this work?

When it comes time for reordering products, simply search and create a list of products and their respective quantities, no matter the vendor.

Create your order, and and MEHD will automatically separate and create purchase orders for each vendor with their represented product. Be sure to use the email function along with the created purchase order to directly send the new purchase order to your vendor (just be sure that you have an email address attached to your vendor’s profile).

Product Exports now come with Category Numbers

What is it?

When using Product Exports, you will now see a Category Number column in front of the Category Name.

Why is it important?

Including category numbers when exporting is vitally important when it comes to re-importing, especially during a mass product update. With this new column, MEHD users will be reducing a lot of time and manual work.

How does this work?

During a product export, an excel file will be downloaded directly to your computer in which there is a new column, “category #”, in front of the category name.

By making sure all products have a category number, you will be able to re-import the entire product list easily, saving you time and many headaches.

Products within Kits now have Serial Numbers

What is it?

Kits are sold with multiple products, each having their own serial numbers.

Why is it important?

This gives MEHD all the great qualities of inventory control it had before with the addition of tracking each item down to the serial number. This also allows MEHD users to trace the serial number with the use of the Serial Number report. Have a recall on certain products? No problem – find all the customers with the serial numbers on recall now!

How does this work?

All of this is done and tracked internally within the system so you don’t have to worry about it, just make sure you select the serial numbers of your products in a kit when invoicing a customer.

Quotes and Sales Order “Drag and Drop” feature

What is it?

An overlooked feature that allows MEHD users to drag items around on the quotes or sales order pages, so that items can go by like items.

Why is it important?

You’re a professional, and your quotes and sales orders need to look professional as well. Organizing products by groups or stages in the quote and sales order allows your clients and sales people to easily absorb the information they need.

How does this work?

On your Quotes or Sales Order modules, simple just click on an item, and drag up or down to move its position on the page.
