The following programs are required in order to process transfers using the Inter-Facility Transfer (IFT) System. These programs and related overlays, and the appropriate data and index files should be installed by Cove Systems personnel. Most of the programs used by the IFT system are also used to perform other functions such as creating sales orders, purchase orders and purchase order requisitions, creating vendors, etc. and these programs are located on several different menus. A brief description of each of the programs used to process IFT transactions is listed below for your convenience. These brief descriptions discuss only how each program is used by the IFT system. For more information about each of these programs, you should refer to the Procedures and Program Reference sections of the appropriate manuals. For example, if you would like to find out more about the P/O Recommendations Report, you should refer to the appropriate sections of the Purchasing Manual.
