Electronic Parts Catalogues (YPIC EPC)
Evopos can import a parts list selected in YPIC. This saves time and keying errors and also ensures we always check our stock availability before ordering.
In YPIC make sure it is configured to have the Send Parts to DMS option (You may need to upgrade to a later version if you have a really early version).
Initial Setup Evopos for EPC linking
Setup on each computer that uses the Yamaha EPC (YPIC)
Select Settings / Workstation and set ‘Yamaha EPC File name’ to the file name the EPC creates. The file name is normally ‘C:\DEALER\o9999991.001’ (Where 999999 is your 6 digit Yamaha Account Code).
Export selected parts in YPIC
Select parts as normal in YPIC EPC. When you have finished select the ‘Complete Order / Send to DMS’ icon (Normally a Page with a hand on it), this should bring up a window where you should set the OrderNo to: 1 and set the Order Method to anything (We select the order method when producing the Purchase Order). This should create a file as set above, eg: ‘C:\DEALER\o9999991.001’
Import selected parts into Evopos
Switch back to the Sales screen in Evopos (Tip: You can press Alt+Tab to switch windows). Then make sure the cursor is in the Part No entry and press the Enter key.
Evopos will then look for the above file and if found it will prompt you if you want to Customer Order any item you do not have in stock. For example: if just doing an estimate you would normally select ‘No’ (lines with no stock will be coloured Blue). If a customer was ordering parts or you were booking them to a job, you would normally answer ‘Yes’ and then any parts not in stock would be Customer Ordered.
The parts should then appear on the sales screen and you can select to Invoice or Book to Job etc. Note: Lines are only Customer Ordered when you print the transaction.
You can create a Purchase Order at any time which can automatically bring up customer orders and / or low stock.
Export Purchase Order (EDI)
EVOPOS can export Purchase Orders to be imported into Yamaha DealerNet to save time and help avoid errors re-keying part numbers.
- In EVOPOS navigate to Contacts
- Find your Yamaha contact record
- Under the purchase tab set the Account number as follows: ‘EDIYAMAU999999 (where 999999 is your 6 digit Yamaha account number)
