A bottleneck in the purchase order approval process is something that purchasing managers want to avoid. They are, however, often busy and do not always have access to legacy ERP systems to approve purchase orders. Even if they have, the process of reviewing and approving the purchase order takes longer when working with such ERPs. PO Approvals are delayed as a result, and businesses may experience a halt in operational activities.
Benefits of Boosting the Purchase Order Approval Process
- Improved Employee Productivity and Satisfaction: The Purchase department sees a high volume of purchase orders (POs) waiting for approval. Reviewing and approving these POs through Oracle Cloud is a cumbersome process, since it is not always possible to sit in front of sophisticated ERP for processing approvals. However, with real time access to data on mobile, decision makers can connect to the ERP from mobile and process approvals anywhere, anytime. This increases the productivity of employees and ensures job satisfaction.
- Reduction in Delays: With a push notification feature, decision makers get notified of any new approval to be expedited as soon as the request is uploaded. Users are notified of approvals, process the approvals faster or delegate it to somebody, thereby reducing the time needed to take purchase order approval decisions.
- Greater Operational Efficiency: Mobilizing PO Approval process ensures greater operational efficiency as the approval process if fast, the volume of POs waiting for approval will be less and time needed to procure materials is reduced.
