RE: Best practice for purchase order flow?

Hi all,

We are in the start of implementing purchase orders in our environment. Right now we receive bills and we would like to match these to already created POs. The data for the POs comes from another system and is uploaded prior to us receiving the bill from the supplier.

Now, this would be a pretty large flow, so billing every PO manually would be very time consuming. Is there a way as most systems do it where you receive a bill, and add the PO number on the vendor bill form? Or what is the normal procedure for matching a bill with a PO?

Can anyone describe how you are working with POs for some inspiration?

Best regards,

The AP clerk can search for the PO and click Enter Bill to associate the two transactions. If you want to start from the vendor bill screen, you may need to use a custom field to manually type the PO# or show a list of existing POs.
