General Questions about Purchasing Software
What is a Purchase Order?
A Purchasing Software creates a binding agreement between a buyer and a supplier. A Purchase Order sets forth descriptions, quantities, prices, discounts, payment terms and so on. Once a Purchase Order has been approved and accepted by the supplier it authorizes a Purchase transaction.
Why do I need Purchase Orders?
Because the purchasing software provides security for both sides. The supplier makes sure to get paid, once all items and products have been delivered. The buyer is on the safe side, because he or she doesn’t get surprised by unknown or unexpected big bills.
When do I need Purchase Orders?
Especially when you are dealing with many suppliers and run a team spending money on your behalf.

View Purchase Orders
What includes the view section?
You can either review your own Purchase Orders, all Purchase Order or search by departments and suppliers. In addition you will be able to use various filters, sort option and keyword searches. All lists include a net total at the bottom.
Why can’t everyone see all Purchase Orders? There are some missing.
The administrator might have restricted the visibility of certain Purchase Orders for your user account. That’s why you might see only your own POs or the ones from your own department. In other cases you might have chosen the wrong filter, where your PO is not reflected.
Can I save or print all my Purchase Orders?
