Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):
How to place an order for Blain Farm Fleet account 2111816 1. This account has its own keycode, 6FS6. There are stores 2-39 that are on the address list. 2. Blain POs come through EDI utilizing the Liaison Athena website. An email is received to indicate that the POs are available to print. The website can be accessed through the PO# link on the email. The Username is: 11936 and the PW: ezgde38t 3. Click on Purchase orders and then print each PO, write down each store number as they print to help track which have printed; there are only 30 that appear on a page, so have to rechoose purchase order on the left and then use the arrow keys in the upper right corner to page to the unprinted POs; unprinted POs show in Bold Print 4. Enter the PO onto an order: a. Choose the correct ship to address b. Enter the PO # in the Purchase Order area (DO NOT enter in the address, as the PO will appear on the label if put into the Purchase Order area) 5. Enter order. The price on the order must match the price on the PO. Blains can only be invoiced for what appears on their PO, so must make sure it is entered correctly. If the PO price does not match what is in the computer, contact Scott Center the Regional Manager for the account; cell phone # 616-443-5715 6. Mark items on the PO that are out of stock as you enter. An out of stock report will need to be sent to Scott Remington and Scott Center so they know what was not available from the weekly orders to help with purchasing as Blains does not accept backorders. 7. Two items that do not have correct CSR item #s are: a. 88781 (ivermectin horse health dewormer) Blains has item 08871 on their PO it will always appear like this as in their system item 88781 is assigned to another item b. MuliVite is item 01862 (it is an incorrect item # on the Blains POs) 8. After creating the order, cancel any backordered items in the sub-order, then comment the order with the items that were not available (the cancelled b/o should also print at the bottom of the packing list, so this is just an extra note to them) 9. Since Blains is invoiced via EDI, accounting processes this the following day using the invoice that is created. An email will then be received with the functional acknowledgement that the orders invoicing were received. Match the POs to the orders to confirm the invoicing and let accounting know that all went through or if any were missing.
