  • Allows users to enter all requisition information including quantities, prices, description of items ordered, preferred vendor and expense accounts (if known and if assigned permission).
  • Approval chain is completely tailorable to match organizational structure.
  • Requisitions are tracked through approval process, and approval status is available to the requisitioner.
  • Completely integrated with CDK for Windows fund accounting software.
  • When fully approved, requisitions can be converted to Purchase Orders at the business office without retyping information.
  • Funds are not encumbered until requisition is converted to a Purchase Order.

  • Electronic copies of backup information, such as quotes, catalogue pages, etc., can be attached to the requisition and travel with the requisition through the approval chain to the business office.
