In the latest release, Vantagepoint users that own Purchasing can now manage Purchase order and Items in the browser. These new enhancements streamline the purchase order process, make it easier for project managers to view requisitions and purchase orders from Project review and simplify the review process with images.
Items in Any Browser
For any item record, you can now add an image so users will know exactly what they are purchasing. Also, there is a new Link URL to take a user to additional information found outside of Vantagepoint.
Users can also attach documents to items regardless of Purchase Order status.
Purchase Order Form in any Browser
In the latest release, there is also a new “Mark Final” process, streamlining how purchase orders are finalized. With the new Purchase Order browser interface, all steps to approve and finalize a purchase order are clearly shown in the VIP actions.
Add Purchase Order Vendor on the Fly
If a user has the proper security rights, the user can quickly add a new vendor while creating the Purchase Order, saving time and simplifying the purchase order process.
Purchasing Details Now in Project Review
Project managers can now see purchase requisitions and purchase orders for a given project from project review. There is a new “Purchasing” tab in Project Review, making it easier for project managers to have visibility into all aspects of their project in one place.
Lastly, if your firm utilizes Purchase Order Approval Workflows, Purchase Order approvals will now be available in the Vantagepoint Approval Center.
Definitely check out these great new Purchasing features released in Vantagepoint 4.5! To enable purchase order and items in the browser, administrators will need to turn on the feature flag located in Settings > General > Modules.
