AbstractA management system automatically manages order and sales operations by facsimile communication between an orderer and a supplier. The management method of this system comprises checking the steps of the kind and number of commodities written on an order sheet which is sent from the orderer by facsimile, checking the stock of such commodities, sending an order content check request sheet to the orderer by facsimile in order to have the orderer check the contents of the order, collecting the ordered commodities based on an order content confirmation sheet sent from the orderer by facsimile, managing the remaining stock of the commodities, and performing accounting operations for the ordered commodities.
