FF&EZ Design + Orders Export
FF&EZ's Order Export plug-in, available as an extra cost option for FF&EZ-Design, is one way to take advantage of FF&EZ-Design's ability to organize FF&E by projects and locations within them and then produce purchase orders from an existing purchasing system.
FF&EZ is a system designed to address the challenges encountered by interior designers and architects from the start of a project and moving forward. These were the issues that were traditionally ignored by software development efforts, which tended to start with accounting reports and work backward from there (never reaching the design staff at all except as an indecipherable list of numeric codes to use).
When changing your purchasing system isn't an option
A hybrid approach
The export process begins like that of creating orders in FF&EZ-Design/Purchasing: You select a scope of what to order within a project — a single object in a single room, everything in a single room or area, all objects from a single vendor or anything meeting a user-defined query — and the export process then takes that scope and creates the ordering data for it. Once exported for ordering, project objects are marked as "ordered" to make it easier to order remaining items later.
Many format options
The Order Export plug-in may be the ideal way to go for some firms, since it gives designers the benefits of FF&EZ's much more powerful tools for managing design data while offering management a way to cut data re-entry costs with your existing accounting system.
