A business can configure Business Central to perform various tasks to simplify the procurement process. Some of them are:

  • Business Central auto-calculates the time an item should be re-ordered and received.
  • The workflows can map the price revision processes. The ERP procurement module can post sales transactions and manage receivables in multiple currencies for each customer.
  • Add a purchase invoice as per the agreement with the vendor and include delivery and payment terms
  • Generate a request for a quote for your vendor which can later be converted into a purchase order
  • Create a purchase invoice for all or some of the items
  • Automatically create a credit memo for unpaid purchase invoices and then either cancel the purchase invoice or recreate it so you can make corrections
  • Add a purchase credit memo to revert a specific posted purchase invoice. So that it can reflect which products you are returning to the vendor and which payment amount you will collect
  • Convert electronic invoices from your vendors to purchase invoices within Business Central
