Our Buy Advice feature in Supplier Purchase Planning was created to help you make decisions on whether to buy products now or wait depending on next month's cost. The video below will highlight the feature using pricing files provided by Southern Glazer's Wine & Spirits and Standard Beverage for the state of Kansas.
There are additional columns in Supplier Purchase Planning for the Next Supplier Case Cost, Next Case Cost Change, and Next Case Cost Date for when the next cost change will take effect.
- If the Buy Advice column shows BUY NOW, the product is either on sale or the cost is set to increase at the start of the Next Case Cost Date.
- If the Buy Advice column shows WAIT, the product will be going on sale or the cost is set to decrease at the start of the Next Case Cost Date.
