Seamless integration between the Stock and Purchase Orders modules allows POs to be created quickly after the reorder plans are generated. Preferred suppliers are automatically selected for the purchase orders.
Purchase Order limits can be configured by line and sub line types per user. In addition workflow escalation can be configured which follows a hierarchy to identify the relevant authority that can approve purchase orders that are over the user’s limit. Delays can be minimised using escalation rules if purchase orders are not authorised within specified periods of time.
The Purchase Orders module also offers a structured process for creating Requests for Quotes (RFQ) or Requests for Procurement (RFP) from suppliers.
