increased or decreased or if the item is being consistently used.
You can also determine if an item is no longer being used.
Reorder Notice -
an item needs to be reordered (as determined by the system), the system
will produce a "Reorder Notice".
The Reorder Notices are given to the customer along with the
inventory management reports on a monthly basis.

provides the following information for the item:
Reorder Notice requires an action by the customer. Requirement options are:
lower section of the Reorder Notice is for customer approval for
reordering the item.
customer should indicate their purchase order number, the quantity to be
ordered and provide an approval signature and date.
Online Requisitioning System via the Internet -
items stored in our warehouse are requisitioned via our Online
Requisitioning System which is directly accessible through the Internet. DPI is notified by email when a requisition is placed and the
requisition will be processed for the next applicable delivery date.
Items are then shipped utilizing the most economic means of
shipping unless you specify otherwise.
The Online Requisitioning System provides you with "real
time" access to your warehouse inventory balances and
receipts/deliveries of each item to and from our warehouse.
To allow easy review of past requisitions and eliminate hard copy
confirmations, all requisitions are stored in Order History via the Online
system with direct customer access.
Charge-Back/Cost Distribution Report -
Charge-Back/Cost Distribution Report is a cost allocation report of all
items used during the month for each customer location (branch,
department, cost center, etc.). The
report is sorted by customer location and shows:
a) each inventory release from the warehouse during the month and a
value for each release, b) total value of all releases for each location
and c) total value of all releases during the month.
This report can be used as a basis for allocating the cost of item
usage to the company locations/cost centers.
