Part Code Descriptions

Part Codes greatly improve the speed of data entry and the consistency of parts descriptions in the database. These shorthand descriptions ensure that part names, category, and potential vendor information can be quickly and consistently retrieved by simply typing in a couple of letters, or by selecting a part code from a list.

When adding a non-catalog part to an estimate or order, you could type ACC into Part Code and Description (A/C Compressor) would fill in automatically. Part Codes can also be set up to fill in the Category and Vendor fields as well. Use these to train your system to automatically fill data fields and minimize input work for non-stock parts added to orders. Reward is your system will have more complete part sales data with fewer records missing any information.

These pre-defined Part Codes can also be printed out for review and future reference. Two Part Code reports can be found under the Inventory tab of Reports; they are sorted by either Part Code or description.
