Botswana Ash (Pty) Ltd is a Botswana-based mining operation that produces soda ash and salt. As a major supplier to the South African glass industry, Botsawna Ash chose to implement TransLution™ Software to help manage stock.

Implemented by Afrisoft Africa, TransLution™ is used to record delivery of stock and update SYSPRO by posting Goods Received Note data and printing Goods Received Note documents. Stock can be received via rail or road with slight differences between how each is processed. For example, during road deliveries the truck registration number is recorded while this is not applicable to rail deliveries.

Stock is dispatched from the plant to the customer by road. Once the relevant data – including the Sales Order number, stock code and quantity – have been entered, the dispatch note is created in SYSPRO and the goods can be moved to the customer.

The system also handles the return of stock from customers as well as allowing users to cancel erroneous dispatches and to create new ones if required.
