Many IT departments need to purchase a lot of equipment, software and parts for their company. Those partly need to be approved by the department manager the purchase eventually will be charged too. Further is it important to keep track of all ongoing request and even more all ongoing orders and if this stuff was received or not.
To help you with this task, the purchases module was introduced. It will allow you to add purchases with many details and various statuses. Further can and should you track each item that should be received and have who ever picked it up from the warehouse mark it off as received as well.
All ongoing purchases will show up in the main menu. The sub-tables for the status have a flag that determines if it shows up in the main menu or not (finished/received flag).
Each item on a purchase will cause a list-entry in the table in this module. This allows you to filter a lot of information.
Well applied filters allow you to as well track the amount of money spend since e.g. the beginning of the year, helping you to keep an eye on your budged.
