4. Four new fields are added, enhancing the integration between Sage 300 ERP and Sage Inventory Advisor.

a) On the Location Details screen Inventory Minimum (SIA) and Lead Time (SIA) fields are added

Inventory minimum and lead time

Inventory Minimum (SIA) field allows you to assign the minimum quantity of an item that must be in inventory at a location.
Lead Time (SIA) field allows you to specify the lead time to allow when ordering goods.

b) On the Vendor Details screen Order Minimum (SIA) and Preferred Vendor (SIA)

Order minimum and Prefered vender

Order Minimum (SIA) field allows user to specify the minimum quantity of an item that you must order from a vendor. If purchase of an item is done from multiple vendors, Preferred Vendor (SIA) field allows you to specify a preferred vendor for the item.
5. ‘On the Lot Numbers’ screen and the Serial Numbers screen, user can now change the stock date. Here, if the user changes the stock date, the system re-calculates the expiry date automatically.
