• The Payment Terms
• The Requesting Purchasing Department and Intended Recipient
• Where to Deloiver The Order and How.

The system should send out POs to approvers automatically, manage rejection and other workflow exceptions properly, assign PO numbers automatically and send out the POs to suppliers automatically or manually.

The Best Purchase order systems support Blanket Purchase Orders, Recurring POs, also automate the receiving process, provide advanced reporting, enterprise-level security and audit, and perhaps most importantly, their purchase order form should be highly customizable.
