ID 24 Helps to follow up on outstanding PO backordered Items from vendors. You only need to enter an estimated arrival date on the PO line items that are back-ordered with the vendor. The alert will then remind inventory managers to check with the vendor on backordered items not received after Variable W (your choice) =number of days past due.
In your Purchase order within each line item is an area for Estimated Arrival date. If items are backordered this area must be maintained with current information for Alert ID24 to report properly.
Blending this simple additional step into your daily process reaps great benefits such as quickly being able to update your techs and customers with status on backordered items.
