There are a number of solutions:

But first please be aware that XA workflow has and does have purchase order approvals.

I have a solution that allows you to review requisitions anywhere including iPhone and blackberry.

Subject: [MAPICS-L] Purchasing Requisition System


We are contemplating reviewing purchasing requisition review and
approval systems. I am interested in any feedback or direction folks
may have... I am looking to scope out a potential project.

The major driver in the discussion is simplifying the process (too much
paper) and helping keep track of documents.

Here are some elements I think we would expect...
- Web based client...but that is not set in stone
- Create requisition with required information and attach
supporting document(s).
- Standard workflow based upon requester / requester and
department / type of purchase...
- Adhoc / exception workflow - maybe
- Review requisitions - time to process, value, ...
- Approved requisitions create XA requisitions...
- Appropriate integration with XA - unit, nature,
vendor(?)...however, methods to handle if some information is not there
(new vendor, ...)
- Rejection flow..
- Email integration (send email / summary email that 'you' have
work to do...) - email notification and linking...

I have done a little looking and I have chatted with our affiliate. Our
affiliate has a viable solution...but I still want to check out the
other side of the fence. It's my understanding XA doesn't have a
product...yes EAM does...but I don't want to embark upon using EAM for
all my purchasing requisitions...

I have started to check out some third party products...

We are an XA R7 implementation currently. We do own Integrator but not
Enterprise Integrator -- if that plays into any suggestions.

I appreciate any insight or direction.
