How to create back to back orders in bulk

By | January 17, 2018

In some industries the supply is totally depends on the demand for selective products. For these products whenever the sales order is created, the user creates a purchase order to fulfill the sales order. In such scenarios, the product is not stocked in-advance but purchased on demand and sold simultaneously. As soon as the product is received, it is delivered to the customer.

This process can be easily done by using the ‘Back-to-back’ functionality of Sage X3. Refer below link for the blog on the same.
