Purchase Order Manager
SHIPS trucking management software includes a PO Manager, individuals can create a purchase order using a web-based application. This transportation order management software integrates with a company's accounting system to utilize vendor codes and individual purchasing limits to control individual purchases. The PO Manager application is fully integrated with EBE's Fleet Maintenance Application as well as other industry-leading fleet maintenance applications to automatically create a purchase order at the time of purchase, rather than wait until an invoice is created. Once the PO is sent to the vendor, it is placed in workflow so that when the invoice is received, it is electronically investigated to ensure it is within payment tolerance.
Based on the amount of the purchase or company process, the PO Manager will create a workflow process within the trucking management software by which the PO is routed as a requisition request. If approved, the purchasing may occur as a centralized process or sent back to the originating location to execute the purchase.
If the PO is for a vehicle part, pricing is compared by part numbers. If the price quoted by the vendor exceeds the "best price" by a specific percentage, alerts and KPI statistics are placed in buyer scorecards. Interfaces with maintenance and accounting systems allow for the seamless creation of job orders and updated GL codes from the PO Manager application.
