This section describes the reports that are included in the StreamV Purchasing System. The Purchasing Report programs are used to
• Generate Purchasing Recommendations reports which list the items and quantities that should be ordered from each of your vendors. The PO Recommendations report automatically calculates the recommended or needed quantity for each item based on the current inventory quantities in each item, the current orders in the system for each item and the reorder information specified in each item in each inventory location.
• Optionally create purchase order requisitions for the items and quantities recommended quantities by the system. The Purchase Order Recommendations report can be used to create a report of the items that should be ordered from your vendors, and an option also allows you to automatically create requisitions for the items and quantities listed on the report. The Requisitions can then be edited and converted to purchase orders using the Requisition Management program.

The PO History by Item report includes multiple selections that allow you to filter the report by vendor name, product line or based on other criteria.
