Procurement Purchase Order Automation

Being able to accept purchase orders and submit invoices electronically may be a requirement set forth by a buyer/customer and/or a procurement system and ultimately allow suppliers the ability to streamline the entire process.  If it is not a requirement, it is still certainly something to think about to streamline the transaction cycle and reduce errors & labor.

The procurement applications (Ariba, SciQuest, Coupa, SAP etc.) will offer various methods of both receiving purchase orders and invoicing that may include email, fax, CXML, XML, EDI, X12, portal, etc..

Generally, there is 3 main procurement purchase order processes.

  • Step 1: Requisition Creation (Several Options)
    • Manual Requisition Creation > End users on the buy-side will enter line items
    • Hosted Catalog (Marketplace) creation > End users will select items within a hosted marketplace
    • PunchOut Catalog > User is authenticated into the store from their procurement system, shops and transfers their shopping basket back to their procurement system.
  • Step 2: Purchase Order - When the order (requisition) gets approved by the customer and PO is sent to the supplier.
  • Step 3: Invoice - When the supplier has fulfilled the order, they will invoice based on the customers' requirements.
