Establish a wide range of item- or customer-specific information at the sales order line, including shipping information, drop shipment requirements, commissions, account numbers, vital order dates, sales tax, and trade discount percentages. Price inventory items for maximum profitability based on customer class, location, discounts, or any number of criteria your business requires. Assign each line item its own ship-to address, salesperson, tax rate, ship date, ship-from location and drop ship.
Improve employee satisfaction and productivity as well. Empower customer service representatives to personalize the order entry screen with their most frequently used data entry items, copy previous orders and drill down to track a transaction to its original source.

Implement smart return policies, easily track and process returns and replacements, and build customer loyalty. The Sage 500 ERP Sales Order module features a formalized Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) process to help you simplify returns and issue credit, replacement or repair. RMA tracks the reasons for returns, calculates restocking fees and provides detailed reports to give you insight into your returns and help you identify areas of concern.
Flexible RMA processing allows you to determine whether or not non-inventory items can be returned, how to calculate freight, discounts and commissions, and whether or not you want to track RMA expiration dates. Set parameters to allow full or partial returns of kits and kit components. Convenient built-in return features let you determine which bins to place returned items into, restrict returns to valid lot and serial numbers, and optionally charge restocking fees, issue replacement items, or credit customer accounts.
