2. Supplier management roles 


Supplier management allows users to add vendors and fill in the information about them. They can create and update prices in the catalog of goods, manage categories and product units. The user with Supplier management roles can create Product groups and Product bundles (if it is needed for the company purchase process). Here you can also save the contracts with suppliers and track its' period and terms.  


3. Initiator roles 


Users with initiator roles have the opportunity to create and edit the following documents: 

- Purchase Requisitions;

- Purchase Orders; 

- Invoices;

- Receipts;

- Warehouse Requests;

- Requests for Proposals. 


As a rule, initiators are first who create the document and after it is sent for approval to users with approval roles.

In Precoro initiators of Purchase orders are purchase managers, initiators of Invoices are accountants,  and warehouse employees create Warehouse requests.

4. Approval roles


First of all, the approval role makes the user available to see all the documents created in that module by other users.

Approval workflow in Precoro is set up according to location/department access for each user. Thus users with access to one specific location/department will be able to see the documents created only by initiators of the same role. 

Users with approval workflow receive emails with the information that they have documents to approve. 

This would allow controlling the purchases and expenses in the frames of one location. 

As rule heads of departments approve purchase orders and accountants approve Invoices for payment. 

This allows controlling all purchases that are made in the company.
