ObviO EMS Purchasing is an integrated project and materials management solutions that can help manage every stage of the project life cycle. It can be implemented to support organizations with sophisticated in-house purchasing, receiving and quality control environments. It’s also a plus for organizations that require only basic purchasing functionality to track basic subcontractor commitments.
The Purchasing Module may be used with or without the ObviO Inventory Module. In either case, Purchasing provides a basic Purchase Order capability and the functionality necessary to track and control purchases, receipts, and payments at all levels of the company’s work breakdown structure. The purchasing module automatically reports purchase order values as committed costs, displays commitments in the Project Status Reports and identifies commitments by budget category (which allows users to identify commitments as material or financial).
OSI understands that project driven organizations need to be able to successfully plan, track and manage all project activities. ObviO Purchasing provides a continuous stream of accurate, real-time information that will allow your managers to respond quickly to changes in costing, and the execution of each project.
Using ObviO Purchasing, all transactions are recorded in the project database. Any transaction such as a request for quotes, procurement, customer orders tracking and scheduling, engineer change notice and release of bills of materials, inventory tracking and manufacturing orders can be captured, viewed and controlled form the project, account, or operational perspective. This eliminates the need to reconcile information between account and project management processes. Purchasing provides complete visibility and control of all project purchasing activities in detail or rolled-up. This information give the user the flexibility to respond to the changing project requirements, allowing the more efficient allocation of resources such as dollars, manpower, or materials. This allows managers the opportunity to identify challenges earlier and know when to act.
