Key Features of Opera 3 Supply Chain Management:

Flexible Support

Opera 3 doesn’t just generate sales documents. It also checks for customers’ special price lists, discounts and credit limits. It provides back-to-back order processing with Purchase Order Processing and part-progression of documents in the sales cycle. Batch processing of documents allows you to e-mail all documents within the sales cycle, helping to save both time and money. It also offers a repeat Invoicing facility typically used to create monthly invoices against ongoing contracts.

By using the Scheduler, these can be set to run unattended at a specified date and time, usually overnight, minimising disruption. We can link SOP to eCommerce sites for integration to on-line shops.

Purchase Order Processing

Opera 3 simply and swiftly generates all documents for the whole purchase process from start to finish. Purchase Documents give greater control over the organisation of purchase orders in your business. Multiple supplier documents can be optimised to create a single document for progression to a purchase order. Matching receipts and supplier invoices back to the purchase order gives you control over stock and financial management. The Supplier Product File links stock items to supplier records, remembering supplier references, cost prices, economic order quantities and lead times, so you don’t have to.


Opera 3 offers a stock-take application which also caters for traceable items. Stock-Take extracts product information from Stock Control, allowing stock items to be allocated to worksheets for a manual count. Users can then run a cross-check and make corrections and adjustments to be fed back into Opera 3 to update stock levels.

Stock Control

Opera 3 caters for various costing methods and multiple warehouses. It allows you to apply different cost and selling prices, with minimum stock and re-order levels for each warehouse, meaning you can arrange your stockholding exactly how you like.

Given the importance of understanding the true profitability of your stock sales, Opera 3 offers landed costs functionality so that you can add freight, import duty, insurance, warehousing etc to your stock costs. Landed costs can be posted to the Nominal Ledger and are included in various stock-related processes, such as the Stock Valuation report. Stock Control offers a Global Price Changes utility which makes it easy to maintain pricing information for stock items.

GRN and RTV processing comes as standard and provides a controlled and traceable process of receipting or returning stock, and you can also create Quarantine warehouses to hold goods prior to being moved into stock.

Bill of Materials

Opera 3 provides fast and accurate manufacturing information including work in progress, assembly structure detail, batch/serial item location and assembly cost reports. It features automatic works order generation from sales orders or re-order levels, batch works order progression and a comprehensive enquiry facility. Assembly structures can be as simple or as complex as you require, including sub-assemblies and components such as raw materials, labour or description only. Further flexibility is supplied by the Kitting function, which allows works orders to be raised and the build quantity of the finished assembly to be moved into stock in a single posting.
