DEX Receiving for Convenience Stores

DEX receiving is not very commonly used in convenience stores but it should be. The primary reason DEX receiving is not used is lack of store personnel to administer the check in process. While that maybe the case, c-stores can still capture the majority of the benefit provided by DEX with almost zero employee time required.

The main benefit of DEX receiving is the ability to automatically import the vendors invoice into the back end accounting system. StoreDEX provides the ability to do that through existing data export formats or alternatively a custom process could be written and called when the invoice is received. Additionally StoreDEX could also check the incoming invoice to validate that product is known and authorized and the price is correct and automatically create an adjustment to the vendor invoice if needed.

Here is a demonstration of StoreDEX automatically posting a vendor bill to Quickbooks as well as updating the item on hand inventory without any user interaction.
