Overcoming Purchase Order Bottlenecks with Next-Gen SAP Solutions
Purchasing business amenities, time to time, is a necessity for all types of companies to run business operations smoothly and efficiently. Different types of goods are purchased according to the demand of the business operations. A proper record is maintained to determine the goods/services that are purchased. That's why for every purchase, a purchase order copy is provided to the vendor including the details about the items required.
This purchase order can be sent to the vendor through email, fax and print etc. Generally, the companies have all the details of the vendor, including name, address and email etc. All this data is safely stored in vendor master data.
Email or Hard Copy?
Companies have to send the purchase order copy to the vendor in case an order is placed. However, this has become a challenging task for the companies. This is because in standard SAP, output types use transmission mediums for communication such as Email, print (hard copy), fax etc. Each medium has an individual output type corresponding to it. But some firms want to send the purchase order copy either by email or print (hard copy) using only one output type. They just want to send the purchase order copy either through email or print, not by both ways. This approach not only saves time but also leads to ease of operation.
