Purpose of Practice

Efficiencies of time, paper and mail fees as well as reducing the time it takes for ABC and customers to receive special orders or in house products ABC keeps in stock.

Description of Practice

Purchase orders, which are now printed, signed, and distributed via fax or mail, will be sent electronically. This method will be utilized for orders of all products not in bailment. The purchase order will be sent to the manufacturer/distributor and the appropriate broker via e-mail.

Success or Improvements

The purchase requisitions do not have to be printed out and mailed. Employee time, paper and mail fees are saved. The time from the initial order until the product is received can be reduced by (7) to (10) days.
