Help On Paper-Based Purchase Order System?

techwizardtechwizard subscriber Posts: 1
Hi there,

I work in the finance department of company with approximately 20 staff.

We have a large range of suppliers and currently use a paper based purchase order system.

Paper based POs are created and signed off by a manager/director.

This works ok but it is difficult to manage and the management are away on business frequently and do not sign any POs until they get back.

Does anyone have any recommendations of a PO system that they have used for generating and authorising purchase orders?

We have had a quick look at procurify and spendmap but both seem a bit complicated to setup for us. We just want to be able to create POs and get them signed off. Budgeting would be a bonus.

Best Regards,

    Nice question. In our day to day life, some fields are following paperwork. If you are running small or medium scale business, better try to reduce paperwork. Because it takes too much time to finish particular tasks. Alternatively, go with business application, it helps to manage all purchase orders processes. I would suggest Apptivo, this procurement tool aids to your necessity. Try to connect them.
