With Wave by BMS you can forget about having to load every inventory item into your system, which is an extremely tedious and frustrating task. BMS offers catalog loads in order to avoid this (1 catalog load comes free of charge with every new system).
Some vendors provide between 45,000 and 70,000 items in their catalog. Understandably you won’t have every item stocked on your shelf; however it could be in your system. If that special customer comes along requesting a unique item or PO your system will still be able to order and manage it.
It is often advisable to order a purchase history load rather than a complete, all-items load from your vendor. Having more items than you need could slow your system down and waste a lot of time during searches for items.
Having BMS manage your catalog loads, you can rest assured knowing your inventory has been meticulously processed and combed through for errors and that on your go-live transactions will be seamless. We can provide a quote for each vendor you require a load from. We also have a Vendor Communication feature where you can be trained to set up your own “template” for downloading your vendor’s data yourself, including invoice information. We can work together on a few until you are comfortable with the process or we can set them up for you. Once a template is established you can then download data directly from your vendor’s emailed spreadsheet.
