New Release – 08th MAY 2021

New Feature

Feature 1: Materials Requirements Planning (MRP)

Impact area: Inventory module

Introduction:DEAR is happy to announce the release of its Materials Requirements Planning (MRP) and supply chain management features. This allows our users to incorporate their supply chain strategies into DEAR inventory management.

MRP considers demand from sales and supply from stock on hand, transfers, production, assembly and suppliers to generate supply management suggestions. Use MRP to compare actual and forecasted sales demand with available and potentially available stock supplies and determine when products should be produced in-house, bought from suppliers, and delivered to distribution centers.

Feature 2: eCommerce channels – Import refunds for historical sales fix

Impact area: Shopify, Vend POS, Magento, Magento 2, WooCommerce, Square, Ebay, Etsy, Shipstation

Introduction: Merchants with eCommerce channels occasionally have to process returns or refunds for a sale that predates integration of the eCommerce channel with DEAR. Previously to this release, DEAR would import the historical sale along with the refund/return – this could cause stock discrepancies as the historical sale was not accounted for in DEAR.

With this release, DEAR now checks the sale order date against the date of integration with the eCommerce channel. If the sale order date predates the date of integration, DEAR now processes refunds and returns in a different manner and no longer causes discrepancies.

NOTE: This change only applies to sale orders/refunds created for sale orders created before integration of the eCommerce channel with DEAR. Non-historical sale orders/refunds are not affected.

Pre-conditions:

Functionality:

Sales and refund information can be imported automatically from the eCommerce channel to DEAR or manually imported via the DEAR web portal. Historical refunds and returns are handled differently for each case.

Feature 3: Production module notifications

Impact area: Automation module

Introduction: The notifications allows user to send notifications when an event or action happens in DEAR. Notifications can be sent via internal notifications in DEAR, to email mailing lists, or external notifications using DEAR API.

With this release, DEAR has expanded its notifications feature to include production actions and events, such as required components being out of stock, nested order creation, delayed production start, and more.
