The three process steps of the electronic purchase requisition
The purchase requisition
With the electronic purchase requisition, new purchase requisitions can be created via a web form. Users can access the status of their purchase requisitions at any time. The purchase requisition is guided to the responsible positions via an electronic approval workflow. Depending on the requisition type and/or the value of the purchase requisition, the process can follow a variety of pathways (for example, consumables such as printer paper, IT equipment, or even office furniture). This process information is centrally stored in an electronic process file.
Based on the purchase requisition, various potential suppliers can be solicited to tender an offer. Such requests can be automated based on the data from a requisition process and created from appropriate document templates/text modules. The queries and the incoming replies can be collected in the requisition procedure, thus simplifying the documentation and the decision-making – all in one place.
If an order is triggered because of a purchase requisition, this generally occurs via an ERP or merchandise management system. This procedure can take place from the electronic purchase requisition, automatically or at the touch of a button. At the same time, the former requisition file becomes an order file. With that, documents and all process information (what was requisitioned, approved, commented, etc. by whom) is available in the further process collected in one place, for example for the invoice verification or queries/complaints.
