Currency Conversion Capabilities
conversions are maintained for vendors outside the country.
The system allows purchase orders to be presented and
communicated in the vendor's currency while providing
a conversion back to your home currency for internal
consistency. These currency conversions are maintained
from vendor purchasing through vendor shipping and receiving.
Foreign vendor requirements are automatically accommodated
without disrupting your internal procedures and accounting
requirements. Currency conversion capabilities allow
purchasing transactions to be conducted in a more accurate,
time-efficient manner. Price discrepancies between the
original purchase order and vendor invoices are automatically
reported. Manual efforts in cross-referencing currency
conversion tables are eliminated.
Built-In Dealer Communications Interface
Parts System interfaces with Strategic's Dealer Communications
System (DCS), providing an electronic Communications
link between you and your dealerships. The DCS interface
enables you to integrate dealers into your central
parts management system. With this DCS interface,
dealers can electronically request parts orders, make
inquiries into part availability, and request reports.
This interface enables you to centrally maintain and
update part files, while providing dealers with online
system access for emergency parts orders and inquiries.
Reports and announcements can be electronically communicated
to dealers through the DCS interface.
The interface allows you to extend your part system
functions to your dealers without disrupting your
internal operating procedures. You are able to push
your data entry and validation requirements out to
your dealers while providing them with more responsive
and accurate information about your parts operations.
It enables you to free up your personnel for more
tactical parts responsibilities. Dealers realize improved
levels of service through such advantages as same-day
processing of parts orders, access to part availability
and order status information, visibility of parts
orders, and the ability to place emergency orders
for immediate allocation.
