The DAPREX/400 Purchasing System provides real-time on-line access to rapidly changing purchasing information. The system has been designed to offer the purchasing agent tremendous flexibility in the types and methods of information retrieval inherent to the purchasing function. The purchasing agent has instant access to all order and receipt data and the ability to access this information by P.O number, Vendor, Product, Agent, Date, etc.

A comprehensive Requisition sub-system permits the purchasing function to be decentralized by allowing users to enter and inquire on their own orders. This gives the users the power to control their own ordering environment, and allows the purchasing agent to focus less on routine questions and more on competitive pricing and ordering techniques.

The Purchasing system is fully integrated with the other DAPREX Systems.
