GOFRUGAL NetTrade is a Business process Automation tool that facilitates electronic trade and data interchange among retail outlets and between retail chain outlet(s) and its head quarters.
The usual day-to-day transactions and communications between a retail chemist shop and a wholesale pharma is normally through telephone line, printed documents, visit of sales person etc. These interactions are for purchase orders, invoice receipt, purchase / expiry returns, credit/debit notes, indent, status notification etc. Using NetTrade all these transactions are made completely electronic - eliminating data entry, paper work and without any errors.
A retailer needs to first register to a supplier using NetTrade. The supplier inturn accepts the registration and assigns a code to the retailer and also sends his Item list. The retailer then maps the items in his database with the supplier items. Once the mapping is done the retailer can then send all the transactions such as Purchase Order, Invoice Discrepancy, Payment Note, Purchase/Expiry return to the supplier using NetTrade. Similarly the supplier can send the Invoice, Credit Note, DC and other transactions to the retailer which is directly loaded in the retail software. Also transactions like Offer list, Product End Of Life list etc can also sent by the supplier which is received immediately at the retailer end.
All the transactions are completely electronic. For ex. purchase order generated from a retailer (through GOFRUGAL RPOS7) is received electronically on the distributor side and loaded automatically in the sales screen of the distributor software (GOFRUGAL DE). Similarly the invoice receipt sent from the distributor to the retailer is automatically loaded in to the Purchase Entry screen on the retail software. By exchanging all the trade and information data electronically the data entry work are eliminated.
