The Purchasing Menu handles the purchasing and requisitioning of the goods, materials and services that you buy in. Keep track of, and manage what your business buys.

You can use it together with all of the other Enterpise menus to create a full Supply Chain management solution. Full transparency ensures you retain full control of the buying process - and over who buys what in your business. Generate manual purchase orders or let the system do it for you - based on shortages, your own buying rules and min / max stock levels. Invoice validation compares invoices against the goods you actually receive so you only pay for what's arrived and at the prices you were quoted for / expect to pay.

Fully integrated with MRP it can be used in a Supplier Warning system to give key suppliers notification of probable future requirement. With Scheduled orders and On-time In-full reporting the Purchasing system gives you a comprehensive supplier control package.

Control your buying, control your suppliers

With the Contract Control system you can contract to buy material for a fixed duration or quantity. Orders placed will be tagged against the contract, including handling of Contract rollover and expiry warning. With all specifications, service level agreements, negotiation plans and terms and conditions held against the contract it is easy to marshall your arguments at renewal. These documents are all held using the document integration system.

The Requisitions system gives you full control of departmental expenditure by a system of requests, management approvals, budgetary checks and verification against existing stocks. The final Purchase Orders will be placed by Purchasing staff, so it should be done properly and you order what you wanted to order instead of something sort of like it. Departments see only their own little 'mini-company' of Requistions, Orders and Receipts.
