Orders


To satisfy requests, you can place orders to replenish the stock of assets, i.e. equipment, software or consumables.

You can use specific wizards to send orders to suppliers and perform delivery reception for items.

Notes

  • This applies to all types of requests, i.e. service requests, change requests and investment requests.
  • Each order is linked to a single supplier.
  • By default, only items likely to be ordered and for which a supplier was defined as the usual or potential supplier in the catalog will be available. If required, select the All Catalog Articles box.
  • Delivery locations must be defined as storage locations.
  • Only users with access to the delivery location via their domain can perform the reception of orders.
  • Partial reception, when only part of the order is delivered, means that another reception must take place for the remaining items until all order items have been received or canceled due to stock shortages.
  • Common expenses can be added in the Common Expenses Catalog or via manual data entry.
  • Each item ordered is broken down by analytical cost allocation.
