Ever wished for a smoother, more efficient way to manage your organization's procurement processes? Effective procurement management is the key for organizations to optimize costs, streamline processes, and maintain supplier relationships. NetSuite offers three record types: requisitions, purchase contracts, and blanket purchase orders. Your business can take advantage of these records to achieve greater efficiency and control over their procurement processes.

Effortless Requisitions

Imagine a world where requesting goods or services is a breeze! Requisitions are the starting point for procurement, enabling employees to request goods or services required for business operations. With NetSuite, organizations can streamline requisition processes by providing users with intuitive interfaces to submit requests, specify details such as quantity and delivery dates, and route approvals efficiently. Standard workflows ensure that requisitions are reviewed, approved, and converted into purchase orders properly. Consider the Advanced Procurement bundle (separate from the Advanced Procurement Add-On) for more customizability to your approval workflows for requisitions, purchase contracts and blanket purchase orders.

Solidify Supplier Agreements with Purchase Contracts Purchase Contracts

Building strong, lasting relationships with suppliers is crucial for any business. NetSuite's purchase contracts allow your business to establish agreements with suppliers for the procurement of goods or services over a specified period. Users can define contract terms, pricing, delivery schedules, and more, to make sure they are aligned with procurement policies and compliance requirements. Integration with vendor records and procurement workflows streamlines contract negotiation, approval, and execution processes, facilitating smoother collaboration between buyers and suppliers.

Simplify Replenishments with Blanket Purchase Orders

Do you find yourself frequently ordering the same items from a trusted supplier? Blanket purchase orders (BPOs) are long-term agreements with suppliers to purchase goods or services on predefined terms and conditions over a specified period. Users can establish BPOs with predetermined pricing, quantities, and delivery schedules. This ensures easy restocking of inventory or recurring procurement needs without the need for repeated negotiation and documentation. This eliminates the constant back-and-forth of negotiations and paperwork, saving you time and money, streamline procurement operations, while also solidifying your relationship with the supplier.


Ready to take your procurement process to the next level? NetSuite's powerful tools unlock a world of automation, standardization, and control. These tools can help your business to reach the next step in optimizing your procurement process. It allows further automation and standardization to gain better control over your operations and vendor relationships.
