more about the Elliott Solution
of Elliott's Warehouse Management function, Shipping
Verification is designed to verify the accuracy of quantity picked and
to speed up the billing process by giving you an Auto-Billing feature.
Using this feature is a very easy and straightforward process.
Without verification procedures, the item quantities on the picking ticket
are what the order entry staff use to select items for billing.
If there are errors on the picking tickets, then these errors will
be reflected in the billed invoices causing inaccurate inventories and
the time and expense of reconciling billing errors with customers. Procedures
included are entering orders, printing picking tickets, scanning picked
items to verify, auto bill orders, printing invoices and posting invoices.

Order Import Utility
The Elliott Sales Order Import Utility is an Elliott add-on
product and can be used to import ASCII files generated from other third
party applications. The Sales Order Import Utility is designed to import
a pre-defined ASCII flat file to create COP sales orders in Elliott.
It is intended to provide an easy way for third party developers to
create add-on solutions for creating sales orders. This includes EDI
(850), capturing sales orders from a website, or using a portable device.
Since third party developers do not need to know how to allocate inventory,
determine pricing, commission, or sales tax, or update various different
files that are required to create COP sales orders, the task is easy
to accomplish. The formatted ASCII flat file is available from NETcellent
System, Inc. The only required information is the customer number and
item number. Any information not present will be assumed to be a default
Order Export Utility
The Elliott Sales Order Export Utility is an add-on product
designed to export COP Sales Order data from Elliott to a user defined
format ASCII file. The application can be used for EDI
or any other applications that you may think of. The Sales Order Export
Utility is a powerful and flexible utility designed to address your
sales order export needs. The current supported EDI documents are 810
(Invoices) and 856 (ASN) transaction sets.
Order Import Utility
The PO Import module is designed to import a pre-defined ASCII file
to create purchase orders. It provides a convenient way for third party
developers to create purchase orders. The ASCII file format is available
from NETcellent System, Inc.
Order Export Utility
This is an optional add-on feature to support sending an EDI 850 from
Elliott users to their vendors. If both companies use Elliott, they
can transfer the PO from one to the other by using the Export, as well
as the Purchase Order Import function.
Order Line Item Change Import
This utility can be an important link in the supply chain management
where a purchase order is issued to your vendor and your vendor responds
with revised dates and quantities. If your vendor can provide the revised
data in a spreadsheet format, then you can import the data into Elliott
and revise the PO line item quantities and dates without manual data
input. Most fields in the PO line Item Screen can be updated through
this import utility. Once the import makes an update, you still need
to print the changed PO to make the change take effect and establish
a revision number.
Transaction Import Utility
Similar to COP Sales Order Import Utility, this add-on feature will
let you import and create new AP transactions from a pre-defined fixed
length ASCII file. This function is provided mainly for Electronic Data
Interchange (EDI) where you may receive invoices from vendor on a mass
basis. Instead of entering them into the Elliott AP module manually,
you can go through a mapping process to map your vendor invoice data
into the Elliott AP Import ASCII file format and automate this process.
The AP Import Utility requires very little information in the ASCII
file and can assume most of the information if they are not present.
This makes it easy for the data mapping process.
This is an add-on
feature supports both a fixed length ASCII and CSV file import. Only
Item Number and Item Description fields are required. All other fields
are optional and, if not provided, will assume a default value. The
default value can either be the Elliott's default value when adding
a new item or the value in DEFAULT-ITEM, if it exists.The CSV Import
option also supports copying a default value from another item. If the
item you are copying from is a Kit, Feature or BOMP parent item, then
its components structure can be optionally copied as well. A special
feature will also make the copy from item as the only kit component
if the copy from item is a regular item (not a kit or feature/option)
and the copy to is a Kit item.The CSV Import option can also automatically
assign UPC codes upon importing new items.
& KIT Item Import Utility
Bill of Material Structure Import
This is an add-on feature. This utility can be used to either import
a new product structure or modify an existing product structure. Modifying
an existing product structure may cause a quantity allocation integrity
issue, if the parent item already has activity. Since this problem can
be easily resolved through the Reset Qty Allocation utility, the import
utility will only give a warning message when this happens.
Kit Item Import
Like the Bill of Material Product Structure Import, this is also an
add-on feature. This utility can be used to either import a new kit
structure or modify an existing kit structure. Modifying an existing
kit structure may cause a quantity allocation integrity issue, if the
parent item has activity. Since this problem can be easily resolved
through the Reset Qty Allocation utility, import utility will only give
a warning message when this happens.
Style Group Enhancement
Many industries have special needs when it comes to accounting
and distribution. If you're in the apparel industry, then you
are already familiar with that fact. So how can Elliott Business
Software help you to keep focused on your particular business
offering to you the "Apparel
Style Group Enhancement." This vertical enhancement
for the Elliott Business Software package is specially designed
for your company and numerous others just like it. Here is how
the enhancement, begin shipping and tracking inventory by color,
size or some other variable by using a matrix grid. Each style
can be set up by color or size for sub-coding of an item and track
each code of an item individually.
Once set up, enter
your orders and print out reports, picking tickets, and more using the
matrix you setup. It's that simple. It's that flexible.
Multi-Bin is a key feature of Elliott's Warehouse
Management System. Many companies store newly received items in their
warehouse any place a bin is available. This may cause the same item to
be stored in multiple warehouse bins. The Multi-Bin add-on will give users
the ability to record multiple bin locations for each inventory item in
the warehouse. The Multi-Bin process can be either a one-step or two-step
process. The issue with one-step processing is the person in the office
needs to know which bin the item is going to be received to or shipped
from, which in many cases only the warehouse knows. The extra burden of
communication between the warehouse and the office slows down the multi-bin
process and makes it more difficult. Mult-Bin is only available as part of Elliott's Warehouse Management System.

Web Services Components
If you need to set up a unique e-Commerce or e-Business application that
Elliott eStore.NET cannot handle,
then you should consider using the Elliott Web Services Components.
How will these components benefit you? Simply put, you will be able to easily
develop a custom web solution on your web site without the requirement of
learning the complex logic to update Elliott's back end database. For example,
to create an Elliott order with Web Services, you only need to
provide a customer number and an item number and the Elliott Web
Services components will take care of the rest. Any additional information
you provide, the system will honor and use it. If information is not provided,
the system will use the default value.
The Elliott Web Services components are considered the Business
Logic Layer and are the middle tier of a three tier application architecture
(ASP and/or ASP.NET pages are the user interface tier and Elliott Database
is the Database tier). The Elliott Web Services greatly speed
up the programming project implementation cycle while eliminating the need
for the user interface programmer to learn the complicated logic of the
Mass Fill Back Order

A report is available to show the orders being filled by which items.
