Purchasing Management
Purchasing is the function required to obtain products and material for resale. This may be a centralized or decentralized process. All product purchases may require approvals which can be handled electronically using workflow automation. This function includes all activities related to gathering bids from suppliers through tracking their “value” to the firm. Value includes measurements of on time deliveries, accuracy of paperwork, and ease of dealing with them.
