Requisitions and Approvals

Great product!  Love how I am able to keep track of the requisitions that our employees make.  We are finally able to see how much each department spends and how.  SpendMap has made my purchasing a breeze and the employees say that it is as easy as ordering online.  Thank you.
– Maricela Partida, Buyer

SpendMap supports a self-service environment where your staff can easily order the products and services that they need while maintaining full control over who buys what.

New Requisitions are instantly delivered to the right approvers/managers based on your business rules (e.g. approval by department, dollar amount, etc.) and they can approve Requisitions right from the body of the email notification (email approvals) or they can log into SpendMap to approve or reject requisitions on their PCs, tablets or phones.

If you’re using paper, Excel or email for your approval process, this fast and easy online system will significantly reduce costs and accelerate your requisition and approval process by days.

 

Highlights

  • Easy-to-use Shopping Cart makes it a pleasure for your staff to order the things that they need to keep your business running.
  • Staff can select pre-approved items from your internal Item Catalog or they can PunchOut to leading supplier websites like Staples and Amazon to pick their items.
  • Instantly route new orders to the right managers for online approval based on business rules in the system (automatic workflow).
  • Automatic email notification to Approvers who can approve/reject right from the body of the email (email approvals).
  • Enter and approve Requisitions on your smartphone or tablet.
  • Flip approved Requisitions into Purchase Orders with no additional data entry or route to the Stock Room to be filled from your internal inventory.
  • Requisitions update budgets immediately, before orders are placed with suppliers, rather than weeks later when the invoice shows up.

Receiving

When goods or services are delivered, you can record receipts in SpendMap to update various areas of the system, such as the status of the Purchase Order, the supplier’s delivery performance, item history, and so on.

Receiving also updates other modules of SpendMap as well, for example, increasing stock levels in the Inventory Control and Asset Management Modules. Receiving will also create an “accrual” to match the supplier’s invoice to for payment approval, in the Invoice Approval Module.

Receivers no longer have to send paper Packing Slips around your company since the folks in Purchasing, Accounts Payable and other departments can access receipt information in SpendMap to do their work.

The Receiving Module eliminates bottlenecks and lost documents while reducing the administrative burden of paper files.

 

Highlights

  • Supports both central and end-user receiving.
  • Unlimited receipts per PO.
  • Receipt history and late PO reporting.
  • Export receipt data to other systems if needed.
  • Integrated Barcode Module simplifies receipt transactions.

Invoice Approval and A/P Interface

We have integrated SpendMap with our accounting system, painlessly and with complete success. The man-hours saved in Accounting just by avoiding duplication will pay for the software within about a year.
– John S. Barlow, Global Manager – Technical Services

In far too many organizations, the invoice approval process and reconciliation within the Accounts Payable department is the most laborious, time-consuming and error-prone step of the procurement cycle.

SpendMap complements your current Accounting or ERP system by replacing a cumbersome, paper-based invoice approval process with an efficient online system.

You can quickly and easily approve your suppliers’ invoices for payment, both Purchase Order related invoices as well as non-PO invoices. Once approved, invoices can be exported to your Accounts Payable system using the built-in A/P Interface.

With SpendMap’s invoice approval module, you will immediately increase control over payments, reduce data entry and document management costs and accelerate the invoice approval process by days.

 

Highlights

  • Two and three-way invoice matching for easy approval of PO-related invoices.
  • Support for non-PO invoices (e.g. rent, utilities, etc.).
  • Export approved invoices to your Accounts Payable system using built-in AP Interface.
  • Add freight and other charges at invoice approval stage, without having to modify the PO.
  • Route invoice discrepancies for additional approvals, if necessary.
  • Attach scanned invoices.
  • Split-charge invoices to multiple account codes.
  • Detailed reporting, including Accrual and Invoice Aging reports.

Request For Quotation (RFQ) and Vendor Portal

The Request for Quotation Module makes it easy to get up-to-date pricing and encourages competition between your suppliers so that you get the best possible deal.

It’s fast and easy to create new RFQs in SpendMap and once you receive the bids and pick a supplier, you can convert/flip the RFQ into one or more Purchase Orders, with no duplicate data entry.

There’s even a handy Vendor Portal where your suppliers can respond to your RFQs and enter their pricing for you online.

 

Highlights

  • Automatically build RFQs from approved Requisitions, with no duplicate data entry.
  • Copy previous RFQs.
  • Unlimited items and suppliers per RFQ.
  • Print or email RFQs to your suppliers or post new RFQs to SpendMap’s web-based Vendor Portal where suppliers can review their RFQs and submit their pricing online.
  • Award entire RFQ to a single supplier or split RFQs between multiple suppliers.
  • Automatically build Purchase Orders or Requisitions from awarded RFQs with no duplicate data entry.
