What is Purchase Requisition?

The purchase requisitions feature is a comprehensive tool for managing parts and services requisitioning and ordering. The maintenance department uses this feature to monitor work orders, reorder lists, and requisition records, then produce requisitions as needed.

MPulse allows you to easily track orders and requisitions all the way through receiving and restocking. You can determine your current inventory levels and automatically generate purchase requisitions based on need, reducing purchasing overhead.

Purchase Requisitions vs Purchase Order

Purchase requisitions are internal requests for the purchase of an item or service. Employees use purchase requisition apps or forms to explain what the purchase is and why they need it. It’s a tool to ensure that all business purchases are legitimate and there’s a genuine need for the item that’s being requested. A purchase order is the confirmation of a charge for a product or service that’s sent to an external supplier or vendor. A purchase order is a contract that forms an agreement between the buyer and the seller regarding the goods that the buyer wants to buy.
