ALCiE’s Purchase and Requisitioning module provides enterprise-wide instant tracking of Purchase Orders and Requisitions by requisitioner, buyer, vendor, item, order, project or job. Purchasing is automatically integrated with ALCiE’s Distribution, Manufacturing and Financial modules. Requisitioning is either item or vendor driven, and supports non-purchase order expense requisitioning. Accounts Payable vendor invoices reconcile with both purchase order receipts (with automatic inventory cost adjustments as required) or non-purchase order requisitions.
