Functionality available to sales force credit card payment screen l.jpg
Functionality Available to Sales Force: Credit Card Payment Screen

The credit card payment screen is comprehensive and allows the user to enter all the pertinent information.

This information is automatically processed through CyberCash and the funds are automatically placed into the merchant account as payment for the invoice.

Once the payment is cleared, the invoice is marked as paid and is automatically sent to the warehouse for packaging and shipping.


Functionality available to sales force payment confirmation l.jpg
Functionality Available to Sales Force: Payment Confirmation Screen

After the credit card information is processed through CyberCash (2-5 seconds), the payment confirmation screen is displayed for the user.

This screen contains a payment ID specific to the MULT-E-LEVEL system, a payment ID specific to the credit card company, and a hyperlink to obtain a payment voucher in PDF format.


Functionality available to sales force payment voucher l.jpg
Functionality Available to Sales Force: Payment Voucher Screen

The payment voucher functions as a receipt for the user. It is dynamically generated by the MULT-E-Level system as a PDF data stream and is sent to the user.

The browser then automatically loads the Adobe Acrobat Reader plug-in (PDF reader) and displays the payment voucher.

This functionality is preserved across all browsers equipped with the Adobe Acrobat plug-in.

The payment voucher can then be printed on any printer and it is guaranteed to look EXACTLY the same as the original.


Functionality available to sales force order history l.jpg
Functionality Available to Sales Force: Order History Screen

The order history screen displays a summary of all orders placed in the past and shows their corresponding status.

The OPEN order is available to the user in case the user accidentally disconnects or wishes to continue the order entry process at a later time.

Questions l.jpg
QUESTIONS – Screen?



Order processing concepts order placement l.jpg
Order Processing Concepts: ScreenOrder Placement

During the first stage, the user selects all the items that he/she wishes to appear on the PO.

Additionally, the shipping address, shipping method, and any additional comments are also entered into the order.

All interaction is through the web browser interface and can be performed from anywhere in the world.


Order processing concepts invoicing generation l.jpg
Order Processing Concepts: ScreenInvoicing Generation

After the order is “closed”, the system automatically generates a corresponding invoice for the entire order.

Product availability is automatically determined, and holds are placed in the ordered inventory items.

The system automatically calculates the shipping charges by interacting with the FedEx host.

The invoice will show on the account balance page of the user’s account.


Order processing concepts invoicing payment l.jpg
Order Processing Concepts: ScreenInvoicing Payment

The user must now pay the invoice in order to receive the merchandise.

Payment can be performed through the web interface or by calling customer service.

The payment can be applied to multiple invoices at the same time.

Partial invoice payments can only be performed by customer service users from the administrative interface.

Once an invoice has been paid in full, it is marked as “eligible for shipping” and is automatically displayed in the warehouse shipping console for further processing.


Order processing concepts packaging stage l.jpg
Order Processing Concepts: ScreenPackaging Stage

Warehouse personnel use the warehouse console (also a web browser) to generate packing slips in PDF format and include them with the product packaging.

Warehouse workers “check out” invoices for packaging in order to prevent circumstances which might result in two persons working on the same package.

Once the packaging stage is complete, the warehouse worker simply clicks a button in order to complete the shipping process.


Order processing concepts shipping stage l.jpg
Order Processing Concepts: ScreenShipping Stage

The system automatically contacts the FedEx host in order to request a shipment and to retrieve a tracking number.

The system automatically prints a FedEx label using a TEC thermal printer from FedEx.

The warehouse worker applies the label to the package and places it in the pickup area of the warehouse.


Order processing concepts package pickup tracking l.jpg
Order Processing Concepts: ScreenPackage Pickup & Tracking

The last step in the order process is pickup by FedEx.

Depending on how the shipper’s account is set up, FedEx will automatically dispatch a courier to pick up the packages. Alternatively, the shipper may have to call FedEx in order to dispatch a courier.

FedEx will ensure that all tracking information is maintained by the FedEx host.

The user can obtain tracking information directly from FedEx using the tracking information that we assigned to the invoice.

This tracking information is provided as a hyperlink to FedEx from the order history web page.


Questions23 l.jpg
QUESTIONS – Screen?



Inventory accounting concepts physical inventory l.jpg
Inventory Accounting Concepts: ScreenPhysical Inventory

Physical inventory maintains quantities of each inventory item that is physically located in the warehouse.

These inventory levels may not be all available for sale because some inventory may have been sold but not yet shipped.


Inventory accounting concepts logical inventory l.jpg
Inventory Accounting Concepts: ScreenLogical Inventory

Logical inventory maintains quantities of each inventory item that is in the warehouse but not yet sold (merchandise “up for grabs”).

The logical inventory level is always lower than the physical inventory level.

The logical inventory and the physical inventory levels should be equal at the end of the day once all the packages have been shipped.


Inventory accounting concepts invoice creation l.jpg
Inventory Accounting Concepts: ScreenInvoice Creation

As soon as an invoice is created for items that have been sold, the system automatically decrements logical inventory.

Essentially, inventory is reserved for a customer.


Inventory accounting concepts invoice deletion l.jpg
Inventory Accounting Concepts: ScreenInvoice Deletion

If the customer changes his/her mind, or if the invoice remains unpaid for a pre-determined period of time, then the items on the invoice should be made available for sale once again.

This is done by increasing the logical inventory back to their original levels.


Inventory accounting concepts invoice shipping order fulfillment l.jpg
Inventory Accounting Concepts: ScreenInvoice Shipping (Order Fulfillment)

When a customer order is packaged and shipped, the corresponding items should be subtracted from physical inventory.

This indicates that items have actually left the warehouse.

At this point the physical inventory and logical inventory levels should be equal.


Inventory accounting concepts inventory restocking l.jpg
Inventory Accounting Concepts: ScreenInventory Restocking

When new merchandise is received into the warehouse, the physical and logical inventory levels should be adjusted accordingly.

The physical inventory is increased indicating that actual product is physically located in the warehouse.

The logical inventory is increased indicating that product is available for sale.


Inventory accounting concepts inventory counts losses l.jpg
Inventory Accounting Concepts: ScreenInventory Counts (Losses)

Occasionally, inventory counts will have to be performed in the warehouse.

In the event that losses are detected, the physical and logical levels will have to be adjusted accordingly.

The physical inventory will have to be decreased by the lost amount in order to bring the physical level up to date.

The logical level will have to be decreased by the same amount to signify that the inventory available for sale lower.


Inventory accounting concepts inventory counts surplus l.jpg
Inventory Accounting Concepts: ScreenInventory Counts (Surplus)

In as surplus situation, the physical and logical levels will have to be adjusted accordingly.

The physical inventory will have to be increased by the surplus amount in order to bring the physical level up to date.

The logical level will have to be increased by the same amount to signify that the inventory available for sale higher.


Inventory accounting concepts inventory transfers l.jpg
Inventory Accounting Concepts: ScreenInventory Transfers

When inventory is transferred out of the warehouse (perhaps as a bulk shipment to a remote warehouse), the levels must be adjusted accordingly.

The physical inventory will be decreased in order to represent the fact that items have been physically removed.

The logical level will have to be decreased in order to represent the fact that fewer items are available for sale.

Payment management l.jpg
Payment Management Screen

Payment management is performed by users with administrative privileges. Payment management consists of the following functions:

  • add a partial/full payment and apply it to one or multiple invoices

  • clear/unclear payments

  • delete single/multiple payments


Payment management add payment l.jpg
Payment Management: Add Payment Screen

Administrators can manually apply payments to invoices.

Each payment can be linked with an approval code (i.e. from a credit card company such as Wells Fargo, or from a check guarantee service such as TeleCheck)

The administrator can apply virtually any payment distribution towards any invoices in the user’s account.

An additional service charge can be added to the payment amount. The service charge is added to the first invoice in the batch.

Choose a payment type

Approval code if applicable

Optional service charge

Partial/Full payment amount applied towards the invoice


Payment management clear unclear payment l.jpg
Payment Management: Clear/Unclear Payment Screen

Most merchants will not use this function. However, some merchants may wish to accept some forms of payments without guaranteeing the funds through some sort of guarantee service.

For example, the merchant may wish to accept check payments without guaranteeing the funds through a service such as TeleCheck.

In this scenario, the merchant can use the system to track payment clearing status by manually changing the “clear/unclear” payment flag.

Once all the payments applicable to an invoice have been marked as cleared, and the invoice is paid in full, then that invoice is automatically marked by the system as “eligible for shipping”.


Payment management delete payment l.jpg
Payment Management: Delete Payment Screen

Payments can be deleted from a user’s account through the use of the Delete Payments screen.

The administrator simply selects the payments to be deleted by clicking in the appropriate check boxes, and then he/she clicks the “Submit” button.

As payments are deleted, the system automatically marks the affected invoices as not eligible for shipping.

Rma management l.jpg
RMA Management Screen

RMA is an acronym for Return Merchandise Authorization. The RMA is a formal method for processing customer returns and for issuing credits. There are several functions that must be supported in order to effectively manage returned merchandise. The functions supported by the MULT-E-LEVEL system are:

  • view RMA history for an account

  • create/edit RMA form original order

  • warehouse receives RMA shipment from customer

  • issue credit


Rma management rma history l.jpg
RMA Management: RMA History Screen

Administrators can view the RMA history for an account. At this point, the administrator can perform the following functions:

  • Create new RMA

  • Edit existing RMA

Edit RMA

Original Order Number

Create new RMA


Rma management create edit new rma l.jpg
RMA Management: Create/Edit New RMA Screen

Administrators can create a new RMA or can edit an existing RMA.

The functionality for creating a new RMA and for editing an RMA is implemented in the same screen.

The administrator can set the number of items to be authorized for return as well as the unit price for each item to be refunded.

Items already on other RMA

Original item quantity

Refund amount per unit


Rma management receive rma 1 3 l.jpg
RMA Management: Receive RMA 1/3 Screen

Receiving RMAs is a function that is performed by the warehouse since all shipments are handled there.

First, the warehouse worker searches for the RMA in the database by reading the RMA number which should be clearly marked on the outside of the package sent by the customer.

If the RMA number is found, then the shipment should be accepted.

If the RMA number does not exist or is invalid, then the shipment should be refused and should be returned to the shipper.

Find RMA


Rma management receive rma 2 3 l.jpg
RMA Management: Receive RMA 2/3 Screen

The second step in receiving the RMA is to enter the number of items contained in the package.

It is perfectly acceptable for the package to contain fewer items than on the original RMA. Perhaps the customer changed his/her mind.

Items on RMA

Items already returned

Items found in the package


Rma management receive rma 3 3 l.jpg
RMA Management: Receive RMA 3/3 Screen

Finally, the warehouse worker must determine if the items are in good condition to be returned to inventory.

Lastly, the credit is automatically created by clicking the “receive” button.

Return items to stock?

Create Credit


Rma management credit from rma l.jpg
RMA Management: Credit from RMA Screen

The newly issued credit appears in the user’s Account Balance page.

This credit can be used in the next payment made by the user.

To apply the credit, simply select the credit along with all the invoices that must be paid, and then proceed through the payment process as usual.

The system automatically subtracts the credit amount from the total amount of the invoices.

Inventory management l.jpg
Inventory Management Screen

Inventory management consists of a wide array of functions and tasks that must be performed by the administrator. The MULT-E-LEVEL system currently implements a subset of the entire spectrum of functions that can be performed:

  • view inventory levels

  • view inventory transactions

  • create inventory transactions

  • modify inventory transactions

At the heart of the inventory management functionality is the inventory transaction log. All inventory levels, calculations, and reports are based on the transaction log.


Inventory management inventory levels l.jpg
Inventory Management: Inventory Levels Screen

  • The inventory levels page is the most important tool available for inventory management.

  • It shows the following information:

  • part & model number

  • current logical levels

  • current physical levels

  • shipping volume (velocity)

  • From this screen, the administrator can perform other management functions:

  • view shipping transaction detail

  • view all transaction detail

  • add new transaction (i.e. receive items)

  • This report can be sorted and displayed according to the administrator’s preference.

View shipping transaction details

View all transaction details

New inventory transaction


Inventory management inventory transactions l.jpg
Inventory Management: ScreenInventory Transactions

The inventory transaction report is extremely flexible and can be customized to display virtually any data.

Transactions are shown in different colors according to type for easy identification.

The applicable parameters are automatically generated by the system from the Inventory Levels screen.

The administrator can perform more advanced reporting based on proprietary criteria.

To view ALL transactions, simply leave each field blank and press the “submit” button.

Part/Model Number

Start date

End date

Type of transaction

Different colors represent different types of transactions

Edit transaction


Inventory management modify inventory transactions l.jpg
Inventory Management: ScreenModify Inventory Transactions

This function allows the administrator to modify a transaction from the inventory transaction log.

Information about the change in the transaction is stored in the database and consists of the following information which cannot be changed by any user:

  • used who created the transaction

  • last user who modified the transaction


Inventory management assembling disassembling items l.jpg
Inventory Management: ScreenAssembling/Disassembling Items

This function allows the administrator assemble new items from existing inventory items. For example, an MLM retailer might want to assemble special DEMO kits for sale to its agents. These kits are essentially composite inventory items which are built from certain elemental inventory items.

During the assembly process, the inventory must reflect the removal of the elemental inventory items and the addition of one or more composite items.

The assembly process can be customized by specifying:

  • elemental (ingredient) part & model numbers

  • elemental quantities

  • resulting part & model number

  • resulting quantity

The disassembly process is performed by specifying negative quantities.

QUESTIONS – Screen?


User management l.jpg
User Management Screen

The ability to manage user accounts in the system is crucial. The MULT-E-LEVEL system provides administrators with the ability to:

  • add new user accounts

  • change user permissions

  • manage sales taxing entities for users (state taxes, county taxes, luxury taxes, etc.)


User management adding users l.jpg
User Management: Adding Users Screen

Startup Kit ID

Users belonging to MLM hierarchical networks are added into the system under their recruiter (sponsor). The system allows the administrator to enter this field along with other personal data.

Usually MLM companies require users to purchase a startup kit in order to join the MLM network.

The system uses a variation of the the MD5 checksum algorithm to authenticate the startup Kit ID. Additionally, the system checks for duplicate Kit IDs.

The system stores the hierarchical data in an optimized relation database structure. This optimization is critical during the process of commission calculations. The system hides this complexity from the user.

Sponsor ID

Other personal info fields


User management users permissions l.jpg
User Management: Users Permissions Screen

This function allows the administrator to set the following user account attributes:

  • login home page

  • internal/external user

  • impersonate other users (telemarketers)

  • find users by ID (telemarketers)

QUESTIONS – Screen?


Commission bonus calculation l.jpg
Commission & Bonus Calculation Screen

MLM organizations calculate bonuses and commissions payable to each user in their MLM. These calculations are performed at regular intervals. These calculations are typically based on sales “points” generated by the members.

The calculation schemes vary from simple to extremely complex and usually consider factors such as individual “points”, overall sub-network “points”, limited sub-network “points”, seniority, recruiting performance, etc.

The MULT-E-LEVEL system at Baci Wear International employs a sophisticated calculation algorithm for this process.

MULT-E-LEVEL implements the commission & bonus calculation mechanism with the following features:

  • Algorithm is implemented as a separate process to allow customization for particular MLM networks

  • employs a powerful logging mechanism to record and help “explain” how the commission & bonus amounts were derived for each individual user in the MLM network

  • has a simple administrative user interface


Commission bonus calculation interface l.jpg
Commission & Bonus Calculation: Interface Screen

The Bonuses & Commissions calculation screen consists of a simple interface that allows administrators to:

Pay period date range

  • calculate the next pay period for the entire network

  • generate checks in PDF format

Generate checks

The function to view the calculation log is not shown in this presentation. This is done through a standard RDBMS interface such as Access 2000.

The function to delete past pay periods is not shown in this presentation. This is done through a standard RDBMS interface.

Calculate next period


Commission bonus calculation printing checks l.jpg

Shipping operations l.jpg
Shipping Operations Screen

The complexity of shipping operations is often underestimated. The following considerations must be made in order to implement effective operations in a busy warehouse with several people performing tasks in parallel:

  • multiple users must have the ability to concurrently access the system from several locations

  • multiple users cannot grab the same order for packaging

  • operations must be streamlined through automation by interfacing the core system with the shipper’s system (FedEx or UPS)

  • certified shipping labels must be generated automatically

The MULT-E-LEVEL system satisfies all of these requirements and achieves tight integration with FedEx through the ShipAPI interface.


Shipping operations warehouse shipping roster l.jpg
Shipping Operations: Warehouse Shipping Roster Screen

The warehouse shipping roster displays invoices at various stages of processing by the warehouse.

By clicking the “Pack Status ON/OFF” the warehouse worker can mark an invoice as “being packaged.”

This prevents other users form working on the same order simultaneously.

The warehouse worker can then begin to package the items.

Invoice eligible for shipping

Invoice being packaged

Invoice already shipped


Shipping operations packing slips l.jpg
Shipping Operations: Packing Slips Screen

The warehouse worker must then generate a packing slip to be included with the shipment.

The packing slip is generated by the system as a PDF document printable from the web browser.
