With the new version management functionality, all changes to products and bill of materials are fully traceable and only done by authorized users.
Change control management
Now in Sage X3, authorized users can make changes, test the potential impact of the change, and then send the change for approval.
New functionality optimizes logistics through the management of suppliers, containers and shipments. Users can now view container capacities by provider, free freight levels, minimum and maximum orders. With this new functionality, freight costs can be optimized by purchasing based on order costs and ordering based on container capacity. The ability to see other products and options offered by a supplier helps increase purchasing and shipping efficiencies. Shipping costs can be reduced by maximizing each shipment from a supplier.
