orders to manage and control spending. They're vital

may have worked in the past but in today's fast-paced
business world, manual processes are too slow and inefficient
and risk exposing your business to faster competitors.

forms and processes in a matter of days using existing employees

processes pays big dividends, reduces bottlenecks, allows

Purchase Requisitions and Purchase Orders (PO) are key forms
that most businesses use to manage costs. These forms and processes
allow them control spending, ensure that applicable discounts
are received, and enable them to get the lowest possible price while
understanding how and where money is being spent.
What is a purchase requisition?
The Purchase Requisition focuses on permissions and is
typically the internal process of
obtaining approval for a purchase. Often, an employee will fill out
a form with information such as an
itemized list of the goods or services being requested with the
estimated prices, and the vendor providing the items. The employee
will then forward the form to his/her direct manager for approval. In many
cases, additional levels of approval may be needed depending on
business rules e.g. if the amount is more than $10,000 a VP must
What is a purchase order?
The Purchase Order (PO) is the order form that
is sent to the supplier. When accepted by the supplier, the PO creates
a contract with terms and conditions that outline legal rights and
protections for both parties.
Why are they important?
These processes are a critical aspect of spend management. They
help control costs and inventory, avoid delays due to errors and
wastage due to duplicated orders. Additionally, they provide
protection in case of
a financial audit, ensure that buyers and suppliers are in sync, and
provide required legal protections.
How do automated purchase orders help?
Most small businesses want to avoid the costs associated with
specialized purchasing or ERP systems. They use purchase order
templates such as Excel spreadsheets, fill them out and email
around for purchase order processing.
Digitizing purchase requisition and purchase order forms and
automating the underlying processeses is a
crucial aspect of digital transformation
of your business. Customers that use electronic purchase orders and
automated processes enjoy massive cost reductions, greater control
over spending, and productivity gains from streamlined processes.
