Easy, Quick Order Entry

Order processing is linked to all other parts of the iPUB system. Many sales are lost because customers tire of waiting for back orders or for products to arrive. iPUB gives you up-to-the-minute information about all orders in your business.

You can use iPUB to more easily manage your business and handle intricate orders, including back orders and not-yet-published orders.  You can know exactly how many products are available to ship when taking an order; that way, you will not promise out of stock inventory.  Limit split orders, multiple shipments, increased costs, delays, and more with iPUB.
