Today’s options for purchase requisition solutions are broader, more affordable and more accessible than ever before, making now the perfect time to bring your purchasing systems up to date. Faster processing times, cost savings and better control are just some of the benefits that you can enjoy with an automated purchase requisition solution.

Purchase Requisition (PR) Process

A purchase requisition process starts with a purchase request, a document that is created by the initiator of the purchase and submitted to the department that handles finance processes or procurement. The purchase requisition process is a part of the procurement cycle, where you get the approval to purchase the goods you want.

A system for purchase requisition makes it easy for businesses to generate PRs from virtually any location. All that is needed is an Internet-enabled device, such as a personal computer, smartphone or tablet.

Automation speeds up the purchase requisition by giving both users and approvers instant access to any request/order in the system. The best systems can generate instant reports as well, allowing you to track, monitor and analyze your business costs on the fly.
