This iPad only app, is for those people who make purchase orders on the go. Do you buy those pads of blank purchase orders at the office supply store? Well, you don't need to restock anymore, this app will replace that need.
SETTING UP COMPANY INFORMATION:
Open up the app, and fill in your company information, tap on “Change Defaults” to start and tap on "Save" when you are finished. This information will be displayed on each purchase order. You can change this information later by tapping on the "Change Defaults" button.
The following fields can be edited: Company Name, Company Slogan, Address 1, Address 2, Phone Number, Fax Number (some users change this to website address or e-mail address), Purchase Order Number, Company Policy 1, Company Policy 2, and Sales Tax (some countries prefer other naming instead of “Sales Tax”). Tap on the “Save” button when you are done editing the defaults.
NOTE: If you change the company information it will only appear on future invoices.
ADDING A LOGO:
There is two ways to add a logo. Your logo file should be named “logo.png” NOTE: lowercase spelling. A logo designed with 100 x 100 pixels works best. You can use the default logo if you like. Option 1: Adding a logo is similar to how the backup/ restore feature works. To access, tap on “Change Defaults” and you will notice a “Change Logo” button will appear. Tap on the “Change Logo” button. Follow the on screen instructions. Make sure you type in http:// before the iOS device’s IP address. Option 2: Connect your iOS device to your computer. Open up iTunes. On the left column select your iOS device and then click on the “Apps” near the top of the right hand pane. Scroll down to the bottom and from the “File Sharing” section on iTunes, choose “PurchOrder”. Click on “Add” and choose the your logo.png and when iTunes prompts select to overwrite or replace the file.
CREATING A NEW PURCHASE ORDER:
Tap on the "New" purchase order button and fill out your customer information, and ship to information. Next, fill out the quantity, description, and unit price. Simple Purchase Order will calculate the subtotal. Finally fill out the sales tax percentage and any shipping and handling charges. If you do not have any of these charges you should enter in a zero for “Sales Tax” and a zero for “Shipping & Handling”.
NEW IN VERSION 1.02:
Tap on the “Address” button next to “To” and/or “Ship To” above where you would input the customer information and you can then select a contact to have the customer information auto fill from the iOS address book. NOTE: Line #10 is for any labor services only this is used when sales tax is not calculated against a labor charge. If your state does not charge sales tax on labor then use this line. If your state does charge sales tax on labor use one of the other nine item lines. If you are unsure of which method to use, you should contact a CPA.
When your purchase order is complete, you tap on save. At this point if you like to, you can e-mail a copy of the purchase order that was created so your customer will have a digital copy. No more misunderstandings due to bad handwriting!
Once you have more than one purchase order, you can conveniently scroll between orders using the "Next" and "Previous" buttons. These buttons will not function if you are in the middle of creating an invoice or editing an existing invoice.
You can edit an existing invoice by navigating to an existing invoice, tapping on the "Edit" button. You can edit any inputted data field EXCEPT the invoice number, and your company information. When you are done editing, tap on the "Save" button.
This app is complete with backup and restore options, so you have an opportunity to save your important data! This technology is exclusive to Breaux Software; you will only find it here. NEW:

To Backup: Select your iOS device on the left column and then click on the “Apps” tab, scroll down to the “File Sharing” heading, select Simple Purchase Order and you will see Purchase_Order.sql file under “Documents”.
