This is an integrated Order Management module for sourcing, operations, and accounting. Using easily accessible electronic catalogs, order templates, and automated approval workflow, purchasing and approval processes are customized to meet the needs of the customer enterprises.
To keep the inventories up-to-date, the Purchasing module contains features that allow effective placing and management of service requests and orders with the providers chosen by the enterprises. Order Templates are built into the system to ensure accurate order placement.

Many orders placed by enterprises either lack complete information or contain incorrect data. The predefined order, request, and process templates of the Purchasing module can reduce these problems in several ways.
