Purchase Order Management

The feature simplifies order creation, invoice tracking, and vendor management.

Key Features and Workflow:

  • Purchase Order Creation : Users can create purchase orders within the software. This typically involves entering details like vendor information, items to be purchased, quantities, prices, and order status.
  • Visp generates a unique purchase order number for each order.
  • Vendor Management: Create a database of suppliers with details such as contact information, inventory listing, and order status.
  • Purchase Order Dispatch : POs can be sent via email to suppliers. This can be done manually from the software (via email) or automatically through integration (with ISP Supplies).
  • Receiving and Matching : When goods or services are received, fields are available where users can record details. The actual receipt is matched against the PO and the supplier’s invoice.
    • Users can monitor the progress of each order. Users can search and filter purchase orders based on various criteria (e.g., vendor, date range).
  • Integration with Inventory : For ISPs that manage stock, PO management is often linked with the Infrastructure Resource Management or the IRM feature in Visp to update or monitor stock levels automatically.
