SYSPRO Purchase Orders is an integral part of the organization’s distribution and manufacturing functions. Purchase Order provides you with the functionality to simplify your purchasing and receiving processes while ensuring greater order accuracy. It enables the monitoring of the quality, accuracy, lead times and cost of purchases, while providing comprehensive supplier performance analysis. Purchase Orders can also maximize warehouse efficiencies by guiding receiving personnel to designated preferred stock put-away bins.
The Purchase Order system includes a Goods Received Notes Suspense System (GRN) for Accounts Payable invoice matching; a Requisition System and a Supplier’s Performance report, along with free-format requisitions and foreign currency options. Goods can be received directly into a warehouse or can go through an inspection process. Various pricing mechanisms can be used, such as contracts with suppliers, foreign prices, the warehouse cost or last cost from the supplier. Supplier performance can be monitored and reported on.
