Katana users can now save their company and warehouse addresses on printed purchase orders, allowing them to use the documents as official purchase orders to order materials from suppliers.
See how it works.

Update: Partial receiving of purchase orders

Partial receiving of purchase orders is now fully implemented and ready to use. Katana users no longer have to make separate purchase orders when shipments arrive in multiple deliveries and receive purchase orders in parts. They can also select which items and quantities to receive now and keep the others in “Expected” status. Learn more about partial receiving.

Update: Unit conversion in purchasing

Purchasing modules now include unit conversion. This is handy for buying supplies in one unit of measure that is tracked by different measures in Katana. Katana users can enter a separate purchasing unit of measurement for each material and purchasable product in Katana and define the ratio between stock tracking and purchasing units.

Update: Multiple manufacturing and purchasing locations

Katana now supports multilocation manufacturing and purchasing for businesses that manufacture at different locations or outsource production, either partially or entirely. Katana users can now manage manufacturing, purchasing, and sales orders separately through Katana, resulting in accurate material and product inventory levels reflected for each location. This new feature also makes it possible to transfer stock from one location to another.

Update: Edit ingredients and operations lists on manufacturing orders

Katana now supports editing ingredients and operations lists for manufacturing orders. Katana users can now add product attributes like custom designs, colors, and other parameters to enable custom, direct-to-consumer workflows. Instead of creating dozens of product variants, Katana users can simply edit orders with the correct parameters. Learn more about this feature.
