In many organizations, the Sales Order, Shipment and Invoice happen at the same time. To make these tasks easier, Sage 300 ERP caters to these requirements using a simple screen of Order Entry as a part of its operation suit. This all in one feature saves valuable data entry time of navigating from one screen to another as well as reduces chances of inadvertent data entry mistakes.
