  1. Costing the order to match the supplier invoice.  This ensures all products are landed at the correct cost as they match exactly what you have been invoiced for.   This also ensures the draft bill created in the accounting system matches exactly what you need to pay the Supplier, making reconciliation easier.'
  2. Ensures the correct stock quantity in received into the stock on hand at the correct branch.
