With Empatix Medical Purchase order module you can send and receive POs between head office and outlets (medical centers) in your organization. POs as can be emailed or faxed, or integrated with the supplier's IT system so everything can be done electronically.
CREATE PURCHASE ORDER PO
Only employees with specific access level can create and send purchase orders.
It is easy and user-friendly to create a PO.
You start by selecting a supplier: you get a list of all products you have selected from that supplier. You then indicate the quantity of each product you want to purchase and click the Create PO button.
You then get a new page with the purchase order data, and can change data like supplier or quantity before you save, send or print.
If you want to send the PO to another department in your organization, simply select the department from a dropdown menu.
In this process, you can see, of course, how much you have of each product.
