Top Features

Create Requisitions With Ease

Are your employees tired of paper forms for requisitions?

With a simple requisition process, employees can submit purchase requests quickly, reducing the overall cycle time.

With smart defaults, the system understands recurring data entries like your department ship and other details.

All you have to do is enter details about what you want to purchase and submit them for approval.

Here is what a simple requisition form looks like:

 

Purchase requisition

 

You can also route an approved requisition to a procurement department buyer, who can convert the request into a purchase order.

Even though the process is much easier with ProcureDesk, you still need to enter requisition line-level data, which could be cumbersome for recurring items.

That is where catalogs help.

Automate procurement operations using Catalogs

With vendor catalogs, your can improve the user experience for your purchasing process.

ProcureDesk supports two types of catalogs.

With a punch-out catalog, You can link ProcureDesk to other vendor websites like Amazon and Staples to name a few.

Your employees can search the entire catalog and bring the item details back to ProcureDesk for further approvals.

Here is an example of an Amazon punchout, where the user gets routed back to ProcureDesk for further approval.

 

amazon_purchase_requisition

 

And this is how the data looks in the user requisition queue.

 

purchase_requisition_from_Amazon

 

All the data gets copied from the Amazon website to the user cart.

You can also build your catalogs. That is very beneficial for small vendors who don’t have a website but offer limited products. It helps not only user experience but also savings tracking for negotiated contracts.

Here is an example of an internal catalog.

 

Internal_Catalog

 

Control Spend Using Budgets

Budget tracking is a critical feature for any procurement tool.

Budgets give you complete control over your company’s Spending.

Once the budget is set up, the system automatically ensures that the purchase requisitions stay within the budget.

With the built-in budget controls, you can block the purchase if enough budget is unavailable.

You can also inform the budget owner when the budget hits a predefined consumption level.

With flexible budget controls, you control spending and enable better Spend management.

 

budget_usage_summary

 

Easy Purchase Approvals

The next step is to route the purchase requisition for approval.

With a custom workflow engine, you can set up a workflow that suits your approval process needs.

With the workflow process, you can route requests for approval across procurement, finance, or IT for further compliance checks.

The setup process is very straightforward. The system automatically creates the workflow for the requester, so they don’t have to think about who needs to approve the requisition.

Here is an example of an approval workflow:

Invoice_Approval_workflow_Software

 

Automated Supplier Quotes

Sometimes you don’t have a preferred pricing contract with a vendor.

So before you purchase the item, you need to get a quote from the supplier.

If you use emails to get quotes, that could be quite cumbersome. With the back and forth of emails, the process is very chaotic.

With the supplier quote module, you can create quotes and send requests to different vendors simultaneously.

After the supplier responds to your request for a quote, you can easily compare the response side by side and then pick the best vendor for your needs.

Here is an example of how that looks:

Supplier_quotes

You can not only have an effective procurement process, but this process also helps you with better vendor management.

Automatically Convert Purchase Requisition Into A Purchase Order

The purchase order management feature automates the purchase order creation process.

Now, not all purchase requisitions need an order issued.

The request could be for internal use, or the employee will place the order directly on the vendor’s site.

Whatever is the case, ProcureDesk can help you automatically convert the requisition into purchase orders where a purchase order is required.

In cases where a purchase order is not required, the system can just let the requisition remain in the approved status.

You can set up rules based on suppliers to automatically convert a requisition into a purchase order based on each supplier’s preference.

Here is an example of how a purchase order document looks:

purchase_order_template

 

Order Acknowledgment

With the current supply chain issue, you want to know when your order will be shipped.

That question is tricky if the vendor doesn’t acknowledge the purchase order. That is why you need strong supplier collaboration.

That is why we have built an order acknowledgment feature that allows you to request an order acknowledgment from the vendor.

You can, of course, request an acknowledgment by email, but that could not be easy to track, especially when you have a large purchase volume.

We have simplified the order acknowledgment process by providing an easy way for suppliers to submit order acknowledgment.

All the supplier has to do is click a link from the order email and confirm the acceptance of the potential delivery dates.

Here is an example of how easily the suppliers can submit order acknowledgments.

order_acknowledgement

You can track your orders effectively and use this data for supplier relationship management.

Purchase Order Tracking

Once the vendor ships the product, they generally provide the tracking information so that you can track the delivery of the product.

With ProcureDesk, suppliers can electronically post that information.

ProcureDesk can then track the package and inform you when the package is delivered or in transit.

We track hundreds of carriers so that you don’t have to manually go to each carrier’s site and search for the tracking information.

Here is an example of how tracking information works in ProcureDesk.

ASN_tracking

 

Confirm Order Receipts

One of the challenges for the AP team is that they don’t know if an invoice is approved to pay.

Generally, the culprit is a missing receipt, and because of this three-way matching process doesn’t work.

With the receipt module, you can easily track what is getting delivered.

When the invoice gets loaded in the ProcureDesk accounts payable module, the system automatically sends a reminder to the order contact to create the receipt.

We provide three easy ways to create a receipt:

  1. Using an email: Employees receive an email asking them to confirm if they have received the product. The employee has to click on the link, and the system automatically creates the receipt.
  2. Mobile app: With the mobile app, you can take a picture of the package or the packing slip and confirm the delivery of the product.
  3. Using web app: Using the web app, the employee can log in to the system and then confirm receipt.

You can do full receipts or partial receipts based on the actual delivery.

Here is an example of a full receipt:

Create Receipt

 

Inventory Tracking And Management

Do you purchase many materials that you use for different projects?

Or you might be a Biotech that needs to maintain lab supplies so that you don’t run out of lab supplies.

Whatever is the case, an inventory tracking module can help.

Here is how the inventory management module can help.

Track inventory:

You can get an accurate inventory of what you have on hand for different inventory items with inventory management modules. You can track lead times and measure supplier performance.

The system also updates the on-hand quantity as soon you create a receipt in the system for the purchased products.

Here is a snapshot of inventory valuation reports that shows you how much inventory you have at any time:

Inventory_report

 

Track usage:

You can also track the inventory usage so that you know how much inventory is left.

You can use the inventory requisition process so that employees can use the requisition process to request inventory items.

Or you can simply create a release request to release the inventory. It makes it easier to track who is requesting and using the website.

Here is an example of how a release tracks the usage information:

 

Inventory_release

 

Spend Dashboard

With a Spend Dashboard, you have complete visibility at your fingertips.

The spend dashboard answers the following questions for you:

  1. Who is spending money at your company?
  2. What are you purchasing?
  3. Who are your top suppliers?
  4. What are your open commitments with the suppliers?

Here is an example of a Spend dashboard:

Spend Dashboard

 

Spend Analysis Reports

With Spend analysis reports, you can gain granular visibility into your Spend.

You can then use that visibility to allocate costs better or negotiate better pricing with a vendor. That enables the finance team to make better business decisions.

Here is an example of a Spend analysis report:

All_Purchase_order_lines

 

This report gives you a detailed view of what you have purchased in a given timeframe at a line level. You would know the unit quantities and unit price.

Use this information to control Spend or negotiate a better price with your vendors.
