Purchase Agreement Management

A Purchase agreement is a type of contract that specifies the terms and circumstances of the sale of products between the seller and the customer. It includes the product's costs and will facilitate a seamless selling of the item.

Odoo has added two different types of purchase agreements, including a Call for tender and a Blanket Order. The type of contract known as a "Call for Tender" allows for the generation of numerous RFQs as well as numerous tenders to various vendors. In order to confirm the practical RFQ and cancel the others. The “Blanket Order” is typically utilized when large quantities are bought over a set period of time, this feature can be enabled from the settings of the Purchase module.
