What is the difference between recurring orders and Order Reminders?
Recurring purchase orders are actual order drafts that are sent automatically and repeatedly on the specified schedule. They notify the Kounta user one hour in advance before automatically sending the purchase order to the supplier.
Meanwhile, Order Reminders are email prompts for the Kounta user towards an action - like create a purchase order, send a draft, and etc.

Automation makes life easier. With Kounta Purchase, you can automate sending purchase orders to your suppliers using Recurring orders - Or you can simply automate sending regular reminders to your email using Order reminders.
Once your stock items are entered, you can try entering your recipes. With Kounta’s recipe add-on, every time a product is sold (or entered as wastage), it will automatically update your stock count of how much of the ingredients are left.
Stock Counts on Kounta automatically sync with your purchases, sales, and wastage so that inventory management reaches a whole new level of ease.
