In today’s global workforce, a slow purchase order process can cripple supplier relationship. Streamlining communications and minimizing labor-intensive administrative process risk is of paramount importance to any Purchasing department.
The PO Distribution bot created by Thirdware helps remove human intervention & improve communication in the Purchasing process.
The bot triggers on a daily or hourly basis to log into Plex System (classic version), identifies all Purchase Orders with “approved or completed” status, and sends it to the Supplier and buyer (based on PO category).
