Automatic quantity update
Quantity updates are essential. When mishandled, chaos isn’t far away. UpKeep automatically updates part quantities in your CMMS system when a purchase order is fulfilled. Instead of depending on something or someone else to update the appropriate quantities, you can go into the CMMS and see exactly what you have or don’t have.
PO request approval/denial
In many cases, the people who send in the purchase orders are not the people who notice that parts or pieces are running low. However, the technicians who depend on these parts do notice. UpKeep gives technicians the ability to submit purchase order requests for parts that are running low as soon as they see this happening.
Downloadable purchase order reports
The ease of exporting a .csv file of purchase orders at any time for financial records and bookkeeping is easily underestimated. It may be hard for people who don’t depend on those reports, but for those who do, it’s a tremendous help. And since your business rests on these reports, in a way, everyone depends on easy accessibility to them.
Modern purchasing power for your business
Traditional purchasing methods forced companies to go through many different parties before the order actually gets fulfilled. This is a slow and outdated way of purchasing. Now, with quality purchase order software, you can send an order through to your suppliers and there to fulfillment in much less time, saving money and resources for your business.
