I listened in on reunite yesterday and the topic of back office functions through Shopify such as creating purchase orders for manufacturers, tracking incoming inventory, and receiving shipments was briefly mentioned. I was hoping someone could elaborate a bit more on how those functions work, or could tell me where to find more information. We are converting our entire POS over to Shopify and streamlining / connecting our back office work would be extremely beneficial. Thanks.
@Ryanatsaltblue could you link to the relevant part of the video?
In general they refer to the admin as the backoffice and some of those functions are covered here:

The order admin has already been updated https://changelog.shopify.com/posts/fulfill-products-more-efficiently-with-the-redesigned-orders-lis...
Other things such as receiving inventory by scanning using the shopify app will be released later.
