Can I change the default terminology?

Yes. Terminology is customizable. You can do this on your own or ask us to do it for you. In Flowtrac, there are general terms used that might be different than your preferred terms. The system is built to fit your business so that your business doesn’t have to change to fit Flowtrac. For example, some of our clients use “PO” (purchase order) instead of the system’s default term “Receive Order.” Or for instance, the “Pick Orders” might be better termed “Sales Orders”. You must have administrator level access.
