Best sales order processing software?

My client has asked me to choose and implement an SOP system covering sales and purchase order processing , stock and warehouse management, bills of materials, sales invoicing & financials etc. Audit trail from enquiry through quotation to invoicing is a must.

Small company, t/o £1m increasing to £3m in 2 years.

About 3 to 8 users.

Not a full manufacturing coy, mainly buy and sell individual products but some component assembly into finished products.

Can anyone share their knowledge/experience/recommendations please?

Many thanks in advance.

Also, what would be an appropriate hourly rate to charge for my services in this?

My.N from Accounting Office

My.N is ideal for growing companies with t/o around £1m.  Your description of required SOP functions are included as standard.  As the company grows then the software is fully scalable, no need to migrate to a different system as needs of the business change, additional functionality is just 'turned on' as and when required.  All historical data is retained.

Prices typically start from around £1700 per user with economy discounts for systems with more than 5 users.

http://www.accountingoffice.co.uk

Intuitive and easy to use, the installation and continued support is provided from UK offices by the writers of the software - no call-centres or convoluted tagging systems - if support is required then you speak directly and immediately to the person who wrote it.

Should you wish to discuss this further or to arrange an online demo, either send me a PM or email directly.

Good luck in your search.

Think that you are looking at more than just SOP

The thread title does not really match the requirements lists.

The requirments list describes an almost entire ERP(ish) system and the need for audit trailing from enquiry to order also suggests the need for sales automation or CRM.

My advice would be to get your client to document and prioritise their requirements ie what do they want the system to do and what are the most important things. 

Many people forget about the priority bit as they assume that they will be able to find something that does everything that they want but in reality it is always a compromise.

Make sure that post implementation your client cannot say to you "surely the system must do XX as everybody needs XX" when XX was not on their list of requirements.
