Ordering



 
 

While the company purchases some product or materials it’s extremely important to have a good system of order forms creating and tracking. If there is no such system or it’s poorly built and organized, a company may meet problems that cause extra costs and procrastination such as following:

 Absence of perfectly drawn up form

When appropriate supplier is found and approved, it’s time to place the order. If the order form is not arranged as official, numbered document that clearly details the customer’s requirements, it may cause some problems in future concerned with variance of delivered goods to originally described company request, terms and time of product delivery, its method and freight, mistakes with product quantity, etc. If the order doesn’t include detailed description of purchased product and its delivery conditions, it will be difficult for the company to prove supplier’s guilt of this fact and correspondingly return company’s losses concerning it.

Correctly worked out order form is a guarantor for both parties to fulfill their commitments, otherwise there may be different misunderstandings and material and time losses.

Useless duplicating of recurrent orders

If the company purchases the particular product from the same supplier for a long time, for example every three months, it’s very inconvenient and useless to describe the product, conditions of delivery and price each time when there is a need in it.

As it is a recurrent task, it should be automated in order to avoid waste of time and efforts that may be used more productively.

Lack of timely information

If the order form is placed for the first time, it may require revisions and may be returned to the purchasing department for some changes. After being corrected it is again sent to a head of purchasing department and so on while it is not approved. Each time when order form is changed there may be a delay if the corresponding team member is not informed about it.

When the order form is approved, the responsible employee should be timely assigned the task to accomplish the purchase without any delays.
