System design philosophy.

The Maxton Sales Order Processing system is designed as an 'open item' ledger including (optionally) an archive for each year and various other history files. All orders and credit-orders and the resulting invoices and credits are entered straight into their respective day-books where they show immediately on the customers' accounts etc. However, these new postings are held in a 'batch' where they can be modified or deleted at will. The 'batch' can cover any time period from one day to many months. This is especially helpful if a mistake is found in an entry, say a wrong date has been entered or an order was entered to the wrong customer's account. The correction can be made by editing the existing entry.

Each year's deleted or fulfilled order-transaction history is held in a separate file. These files can be deleted to save space or can be stored indefinitely. When stored as part of the system, the archives allow a history of a customer's account to be printed stretching back for years, even to the point when the system was set up. A second very useful result is that an order in any of the stored years can be called up (by customer, order number or by key-word search) and printed or displayed showing all its 'drill-down' detail including order-quantity, supplied-quantity, product, vat and nominal codes as well as item pricing.

The Maxton Book-keeping modules are designed to work together in an integrated fashion to provide a complete management system.


For most businesses there are no practical limits or restrictions. The Maxton Sales Order Processing module is not limited too, but works best where you have no more than 12,000 suppliers, each of which has no more than 5,000 transactions in any one year. Total transactions in any month are best kept below 10,000. The standard system allows up to 50 lines on one order.
