Purchase Orders

The Purchase Order is the business document between the buyer and the seller which includes the details such as Product and service information, delivery date, price details and other terms and conditions if any. The Odoo platform gives so much prominents to manage Purchase Orders. The Odoo platform allows you to create Purchase Orders based on the Request For Quotations being addressed. Odoo gives you the provision to validate RFQs and create purchase orders directly from the respective Request For Quotation menu. It is also possible in Odoo to create purchase orders directly without sending RFQs. This direct Purchase Order creation will be useful when dealing with the regularized purchase operations of your organization.

When the Request For Quotation is being sent and it was approved, the next step is to create a purchase order. This can be simply done from the Request For Quotation window without any delay. After validating the Quotation, you can either confirm the order or can canca]el the order.
