Purchase Order

Purchase Order

Purchase Orders are a legal document issued from the buyer to the supplier, designed to capture the exact details of the goods or service that you wish to purchase.


QicWorks Purchase Orders are a great way to help you to keep on top of your expenses.  

Purchase Order Status explained!
Draft:   The Purchase Order is in draft mode and has not been released to the Supplier yet, and the costs have not been assigned to your Job Costings.
Issued:  The Purchase Order has been issued to the Supplier to fill.
Receipt:   A Delivery Docket or Bill has been entered against this Purchase Order.
Closed  : The Purchase Order has been closed. Users can no longer create new Bills, Delivery Dockets or Credit Notes for this order.

Account administrators are able to now set when they wish to capture the value of their purchase order within their Job costings.
  1. As soon as the purchase order has been issued.
  2. Using the bill value once it has been entered against the purchase order.
  3. Using the delivery docket and/or bill value(s) once they have been entered against the purchase order.
