Once a Purchase Request Order has been approved by the supervisor, it moves to quote elaboration.
Here, a Warehouse Manager or person in charge of stock control can overview the request. Then he can go ahead and select suppliers, in order to receive quotes from external companies.
In this form, the items which have been ordered, are automatically filled in, and the Warehouse Manager can now select which external suppliers he’d like to receive quotes from.
Here you can see that we can click on “New row” and select as many external providers as we wish. In this case, we will select two.
The email address field is for our correspondent at the external supplier’s office. This person will receive an email shortly, asking for the quote for our item.
