SI Foodware - Consignment Management

In daily business you are not only concerned with regular purchasing transactions, but you also work with other settlement methods such as commission, joint accounts or minimum guarantee. Furthermore, you want to follow the logistics and financial transactions of items at consignment level.

Consignment contracts

In consignment contracts, data are recorded including terms and conditions, products and cost determination factors. Within SI Foodware, cost determination factors are defined based on item surcharges. Examples of these factors are costs for receipt at (air)ports, cooling costs (periodic and per location), transport costs, handling costs (per location), incidental costs such as inspections or costs for commissioners.

Consignment card and consignment status

With the consignment card, information can be obtained at all times about the status of the consignment. Is there any stock? Which costs have been allocated to the consignment? With the consignment card, all these questions can be answered real time. The consignment status reports give insight into all consignment transactions that have been entered. Questions that can normally only be answered at company level (general ledger) can now be answered at consignment and even lot level:

  • What purchase costs were budgeted and what has been invoiced in the end?
  • Who are the customers to whom the goods have been sold and at what market prices were they sold??
  • How much bonus has been accrued and what invoice discount has been granted?
  • What amount has been included in the sales prices to cover the costs of outgoing transport and what amount has been invoiced in the end by the carrier ?
