The Procurement Cycle for a Service or Material in our Purchasing Module is as Follows:
Determine the requirements: Materials requirements are identified either by a specific business department or via your materials planning and control system, which can cover both MRP proper and the demand-based approach to inventory control. You can raise a purchase requisition or these can be generated automatically by your materials planning and control system.
Determine the source: Accloud’s purchasing module helps you to identify potential sources of supply based on past orders and existing longer-term purchase agreements. This speeds up the process of creating requests for quotation (RFQs), which can be sent to vendors electronically
Purchase order processing: The purchasing system adopts information from the requisition and the quotation to help create a purchase order.
Purchase order follow-up: The system monitors the reminder period specified and, if necessary, can provide an up-to-date status of all purchase requisitions, quotations and purchase orders.
Goods receiving and inventory management: Goods receiving personnel can confirm the receipt of goods simply by entering the purchase order number.
Invoice verification: The system supports the checking and matching of invoices. The accounts payable clerk is notified of quantity and price variances because the system has access to purchase orders and goods received data. This speeds up the process of auditing and clearing invoices for payment.
