Purchase Orders ERP Module

GLOVIA G2’s Purchase Orders MRP software module helps manufacturers manage suppliers, control inventory levels, reap the benefits of Just-in-Time and consigned inventory, and analyze the financial impact of your procurement decisions.

Flexible Control

The Purchase Orders MRP module provides a flexible foundation to meet a broad range of procurement needs, including centralized or decentralized purchasing and global procurement. The MRP solution also supports advanced materials management strategies, such as consigned inventory.

Full Financial Visibility

The Purchase Orders MRP software module provides complete visibility into the financial impact of purchasing decisions and agreements, enabling you to monitor cash flow and overall performance.

Paperless Procurement with Approvals

The MRP solution reduces administrative costs and delays with a multi-level, on-line approval process for purchase orders, requisitions, blanket orders, and related invoices. Purchase Orders also supports Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), XML, and portal-based transactions to eliminate paper-based processes.

Buyer’s Workbench

GLOVIA G2’s Purchase Orders MRP system provides access to all relevant data from a single point so buyers can analyze supplier quotes and performance easily.

Comprehensive Functionality

The MRP solution includes functionality to support standard purchase orders, blanket orders, requisitions, receiving, and supplier returns. Purchase Orders provides comprehensive information about each supplier, including history. It supports orders for stock, non-stock, non-standard, and contracted services as well as project-specific materials. Orders can include multiple deliveries per line and multiple ship-to locations as well as drop shipments.

Simplifying with Outside Processing

Purchase Orders also handles outside processing by attaching a purchase order to a work order, which treats the work performed by an outside supplier as an additional routing operation while still providing full material visibility and control.

Receiving Controls

The MRP solution automatically rejects unwanted over-shipments and early deliveries from suppliers based on user-defined tolerances, which helps keep inventories lean. Cascaded receiving can be used to streamline data entry while optional move tickets help route materials to their final destination smoothly.

Just-in-Time Deliveries

Purchase Orders supports JIT by routing deliveries directly to the work centers or floor stock locations where they are needed. To expedite the process further, items can be earmarked to bypass inspection and enable automatic pay-on-receipt vouchering.

Supplier Management

The solution provides comprehensive performance ratings to help you select the right supplier for each situation. The ratings allow you to identify the top suppliers for quoting, pricing, contract negotiations and direct source location.
