With over thousands of products, retailers spend a lot of time creating ordering slips for different vendors. Having a paper-based purchase process tends to create document overload and great mess on retailer’s desk.
Purchasing Manager app eliminates many of these problems and brings efficiency and speed to purchase process. It enables you to create, sort and place order by vendors to simplify your purchasing and make the entire process more efficient.
Common Causes of Breakdown in Your Purchase Process-
There are myriad of reasons why your conventional purchasing system might break down or hit delays. Some of these are below-
Incorrect vendor names or mapping
If the person who created orders doesn’t know the correct name or full name of vendor or products they supply, this leads to breakdowns.
Failure to complete all essential information
This is especially a problem with paper-based ordering slips where you must fill in certain kind of information- whether that’s a product code, full names or volume of goods
Failure to use the preferred Vendors list
Many retailers have a preferred vendor list, meaning if the authority is not available, employees cannot place the orders.
In some retail businesses, there are seasonal surges in the number of orders. This can compound other problems and lead to further delays.
