A sales order is a document generated by a company upon receiving a Purchase Order from a buyer. It specifies the most relevant details about the product or service along with price, quantity, shipping address, billing address and other relevant information for delivery.
Usually, a Sales Order follows some general steps:
- The seller sends a quote to the customer
- When accepted, the customer sends a purchase order to the seller
- The seller creates a sales order based on the purchase order
The customer may request for exact details of the products, such as terms and delivery dates. To be able to give reliable and updated feedback, it is necessary to have full visibility into the Production Process.
