Sage ERP X3 Purchasing

Sage ERP X3 Purchasing covers the purchasing process from end to end, starting with management of requests for quotes (RFQs), input and follow-up of replies, and integration into the price list base. This is followed by purchase requests, orders raised and delivery monitoring, subcontract orders, buyer workloads, and management of signature circuits through to incoming goods reception and verification of invoices.
Analytical tools are used to monitor exchanges with suppliers to meet the main objectives of the purchasing department in terms of quality assurance, compliance with delivery dates, and purchase cost.   
Integration into the accounting system is automatic through preliminary and firm commitments. This provides operational budget control from purchase requests to the issue of orders. Actual data is integrated automatically through management of invoices receivable and definitive invoices. Accounting procedures involving averaging of expenses in relation to service provision periods are also available. 
Business Partners and Products
Sage ERP X3 Purchasing accesses the latest data about business partners and products. Buy-from, pay-to, and bill-from information is defaulted on purchasing documents, while specific product-level information can be used for sending documents to suppliers using their own nomenclature to facilitate error-free transactions. 
Flexible Pricing Rules
With Sage ERP X3, companies can easily maintain the latest supplier prices, terms, and promotions. Catalog prices, vendor quotes, and contracted prices can be used automatically on purchasing documents, while discounts and charges can either be factored into net price or broken out separately. 
Purchase Planning and Ordering
Sage ERP X3 supports the entire RFQ process, including entering products, issuing RFQs to vendors, sending follow-up notices, registering responses, and automatically generating pricing records to use on purchase orders. 
Delivery Scheduling and Receiving
Sage ERP X3 provides the ability to schedule an order quantity for multiple receipt points and delivery dates on one purchase order, thereby reducing the number of POs and allowing price breaks for total purchase quantities.
