Landing Page

A new landing page visual is a dashboard that provides employees a visual of the status of their activities for the day.  At a glance a route drivers can view the visit progression, at the same time the supervisor can also view the status of the team of route drivers by utilizing the “add Route” feature.        

Physical Inventory

You can conduct Full or Partial Inventory of zones at any time.   

Zone to Zone Transfers

Zone to Zone transfers can be created from an existing purchase order or manually create one by scanning the product barcode with a handheld scanner or the camera on the mobile or tablet device.

Purchase Orders

You have the ability to create a purchase order right from the mobile app.  It will be displayed as “Ordered”.


When a supplier is listed in VendMAX you can receive products into a zone from any one of your suppliers.  You can also receive product into a zone for an order that is created in VendMAX.  All orders are updated in real time and will be displayed as “Posted”.  

Barcode Training

Adding new barcodes to existing products as they come in the back door just became easier.  Scan the new barcode with either the camera or the scanner, select the product and then post it to VendMAX.  Your product catalog is downloaded to the app in real time so all updates are real time.  


There are 12 permissions, which provide you the ability to restrict what users can do and see with the landing page and the various warehouse options.  The permissions are set up in VendMAX under “Security Profile” settings.
