Why is it more efficient to create purchase orders electronically?
Creating purchase orders electronically has many advantages, the main one being the elimination of paper.
The whole purchasing cycle can be highly paper intensive beginning with a quotation then followed by a purchase order, order acknowledgement, advice note, goods received note and finally the invoice. Carrying out as many of these processes electronically not only saves on paper, printing and filing costs but also reduces the risk of duplicate ordering and overspending budgets.
By using purchase order software, it ensures that all purchase orders raised within an organisation follow the same format and drop down lists of supplier details etc. minimise spelling mistakes or any risk of ambiguity.
The purchase order system can also be accessed by the Finance Department which means that expenditure can be closely monitored and controlled.
