AutoPOg streamlines the process of creating purchase orders from sales orders.


  • Seamless integration with Dynamics SL Order Management & Purchasing.
  • Automatically generate Purchase Orders from sales orders in Order Management.
  • Run AutoPOg as an automated order step to have Purchase Orders created without any user intervention.
  • Override default suppliers on the order to source items from alternate suppliers.
  • Create Purchase orders for each supplier on the Sales Order for their items.
  • Support for Drop Ship Purchase Orders, Goods for Stock and Goods for Projects.
  • Direct Drill down from Sales Order to linked Purchase Orders.
  • Support for Non-stock items.

Using the information from the Sales Order, AutoPOg will determine what items to order and create Purchase Orders for each vendor specified for the items. It will consolidate vendor's products into one purchase order, and will also use scheduling information to insure that the purchase order reflects the same requested dates as the Sales Order. If line items on the Sales Order are drop ship items, AutoPOg will generate a drop ship Purchase Order using the shipping information from the Sales Order.

Customers using this product have seen an incredible reduction in time to create Purchase Orders. One customer has their daily time spent creating Purchase Orders decreased from four hours to fifteen minutes. Now that is real dollar savings!
