Hashbrown Systems has been serving its flagship purchasing solution to a few of India’s largest retail stores. Ever since our product launch in early 2018, we have been serving customers and active users from India, Canada, US, China, Spain, Malaysia, Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Nigeria, Ghana. With 1500+ downloads and 100+ daily active users, 10,000+ orders created, and 2000+ products added to the Purchasing Manager app., it has been a fascinating journey to listen to our customers, and build a solution that they want.

We have mentioned the utility of features of our solution in a previous post, and explained a specific use case for a restaurant, and we are now ready to unveil the latest updates that our beloved customers have asked for and we delivered.

  1. Add ‘Unpackaged’ Category

Previously, the solution was built to handle only one category of products – Packaged category. So, only packaged food and non-food products such as biscuits, noodles, ketchup, vegetables, fruits, packaged toilet papers, batteries, cold medicines, soaps, shampoos, etc. could be added to orders. Now, with a new feature to add ‘unpackaged’ category of products – such as, unpackaged sugar, tea, ropes, wires, clothing, towels, etc., it is easier for retailers and vendors to create orders and carry out business as usual.




  1. Select ‘Unpackaged Products’ to Create Order with Unpackaged Products

Retailers and vendors can now create orders to add both packaged and unpackaged products. Previously, they could only add ‘packaged’ category of products. Now, they can add unpackaged products to an order by selecting ‘Unpackaged Products’ to add the products. This gives them the flexibility to create an order with products for either of the categories, or for both the categories.

Difference between ‘Products’, ‘Packaged Products’, and ‘Unpackaged Products’ is that ‘Products’ provides the fastest route to add Products, without having to map ‘vendors’ with the products. So, once an order is created, one can easily see the vendors mapped with each product. ‘Packaged Products’ and ‘Unpackaged Products’ are useful when we need to create orders for specific vendors.

  1. New Icons for Unpackaged Products, Cases & Units of Packaged Products

Packaged or unpackaged, it is now easy to instantly identify the category of every product that is listed in an order. This helps both retailers and vendors to segment products and create more structured orders. It also helps us provide useful data insights that facilitate growth in revenue.


  1. New layout for ‘Order’ form

An order form is now divided into two sections – packaged and unpackaged. This makes the process of creating an order more organized. An organized order form is the first step towards leveraging the potential of technology and data analytics for enhanced business growth.
