Eficent has released a new app for Odoo that makes it possible for users to to give notification of requirements of materials and/or external services and keep track of such requirements. For the purchasing department, this means better planning of Calls for Bids and/or Purchases.
Users can notify requests and keep track of the purchasing and delivery
Purchase Requests can be created either directly or indirectly. “Directly” means that someone from the requesting department enters a purchase request manually. The person creating the requisition determines what and how much to order, when is it needed, and specifications about the requirement.
“Indirectly” means that the purchase request initiated by the application automatically, for example, from procurement orders.
As Purchase Requests are processed, followers of the Purchase Requests receive notification messages once the Calls for Bid are confirmed, RFQ are confirmed, and as materials are received into the warehouse.
Makes life easier for the Purchasing department
Users from the Purchasing department take the Purchase Requests created directly or indirectly as the basis to organize the purchasing function. Either create Calls for Bid to handle certain requests, or to directly create RFQ’s. Purchasing users have the freedom to select which Purchase Request Lines to process, and adjust the materials to be purchased in follow-up documents, in case that the request was imprecise.
In Purchase Orders and Calls for Bid users can trace the Purchase Request Lines that each line was obtained from.
