Several growing organizations find a bottleneck in their purchasing and order management processes, ensuing inter-departmental conflicts and budget mismanagement, indirectly affecting the business. In such circumstances, companies must shift from unorganized spending and purchasing to organized and strategic spending.

When should your organization invest in Rapid Requests?
Depending on the setup of your organization, you need to assess and evaluate your current purchase requisitioning process. You may come across issues such as-
- Long buying cycles
- Unmanaged requests and spending
- Decentralized requesting and record-keeping
- Excessive manual work leading to errors and duplicate entries
If your company happens to face similar issues, then immediately look for an alternate way of performing purchase requests. Before we jump into the app’s capabilities, let’s briefly understand purchase requests and their importance.
What is a Purchase Requisition?
A purchase requisition/request is an internal document that authorizes the purchasing department to buy items or services. After a purchase requisition is approved, one can generate a purchase order. Purchase orders are the external documents that the purchasing department submits to vendors.
Requisition purposes make the process of fulfilling requisition demand more flexible. When you create a requisition, you can assign one of two purposes: consumption or replenishment. Depending on the requisition purpose and the setup of your organization, requisition demand can be fulfilled by purchase order, transfer order, or production order.
