    Use our New Purchase Order and Purchase Requests Feature!

    With purchase orders and requests, your company will now have a central place to have your team submit requests for parts, equipment, or inventory that needs to be restocked -- all from within UpKeep, no PDF required.

    Here's how it works:

    Step 1: A new work order gets submitted to the facility management team.

    Step 2: A part is needed to fulfill that particular job.

    Step 3: Employee A comes into UpKeep's purchase order portal and submits a Purchase Order (PO) request.

    Step 4: The purchasing team gets notified, approves the purchase order request, and sends it to the vendor.

    Step 5: The vendor ships the part to your facility.

    Step 6: Once the part has been received, mark that in the PO, and then your inventory will be automatically restocked!

    To use the feature:

    1. Go to "Purchase Orders"
    2. Create "New Purchase Order" 
    3. Fill out the form details
    4. Select "Submit Purchase Order"
    5. The purchasing team gets notified to approve or decline
    6. If the part is approved, once it's received from the vendor the purchasing team marks "Fulfilled"
    7. Inventory is automatically restocked
