In this Purchase Order Process, the requester first creates a Purchase Order through ProcessMaker by filling out a Purchase Order form. Then, the Purchase Order form is automatically routed to their supervisor for review. If the supervisor approves the purchase order, then an email notification is sent to the vendor for approval. If the vendor approves the purchase order, then ProcessMaker generates a contract for both parties to sign. Finally, after the goods are received from the vendor, the requester checks the goods and closes out the purchase order.
To start a request in ProcessMaker 4, the requester simply clicks the REQUEST button in the upper right corner of the page. Then, to start a request of the Purchase Order Process, they simply click the START button. This takes them to the Purchase Order form, where they can fill in information about the items they wish to purchase for their department. After filling in the relevant details, they can then submit the Purchase Order form for review by their supervisor.
