In addition to the aforementioned features, Forsa ERP’s comprehensive procurement module comprises six core sub-modules. The core sub-modules of the procurement management system include:
After the need for procurement has been identified and before a purchase order has been placed, you can create and place a purchase requisition or request through this sub-module. A purchase requisition is a request detailing the goods and services needed along with the quantities required.
Once a requisition has been placed, you can get quotations from vendors for the required products. Quotations are the prices at which each vendor supplies its good or service. These quotations can be recorded in the purchase quotation sub-module.
Once the purchase requisition has been approved, an order can be placed for the product. The purchase order feature allows you to record this order along with information such as the name of the item, the quantity ordered, the price at which it is ordered, and the name of the vendor.
After the goods purchased have been received, you can record information such as products received, their quantities, and the prices in this sub-module.
The procurement module also allows you to record the landed cost, which is the total cost of a product after it has arrived at your doorstep. The landed cost includes the price of the product itself, the shipment or transportation fees, customs, duties, and other taxes, as well as other costs incurred in transporting the goods.
After the purchase has been completed, this sub-module allows you to generate a purchase invoice. The invoice records the money spent on a specific good or service. Because the purchase module is integrated with the accounts and finance module, the invoice automatically gets recorded in the accounting and finance module.
