Streamlining Material Orders
PeerAssist Procurement is a cloud-based purchasing solution that helps specialty contractors streamline their material order process.
The system offers a variety of features that can help contractors improve efficiency, visibility, and cost control.
Importance of Streamlined Material Management
Efficiency is paramount in the construction industry, and PeerAssist Procurement streamlines material orders to reduce wasted time and prevent overspending.
Field personnel can use the PeerAssist mobile app to request materials, which are then sent to the office for approval and purchase order processing.
This eliminates the need for phone calls, emails, and paper forms and helps to ensure that material requests are processed quickly and accurately.
Simplifying Material Requests
Material requests become more efficient, reducing the need for calls, emails, and data entry. Foremen can easily request materials from their smart devices, eliminating the need for rekeying projects and shipping information.
Real-time Communication with Project/Purchasing Teams
The seamless integration between field and office teams ensures that material requests are promptly converted into purchase orders. Agents have the flexibility to add, edit, or omit items, and even split requests into multiple Ppurchase orders for various vendors.
Efficient Purchase Order Conversion and Customization
PeerAssist helps projects stick to their budgets by allowing Project Managers to schedule material orders based on date, phase, or parcels. Preferred vendors and quoted pricing can be stored directly in the Bill of Materials (BOM) to ensure adherence to the budget.
Budget Management and Vendor Tracking
Multiple vendor purchase orders can be generated in one click, and the system tracks budgeted quantities versus ordered quantities for each release, providing complete visibility.
Purchase Order Processing At Its Finest
The Purchase Order Processing module makes creating, sending, and tracking purchase orders easy. Contractors can customize purchase orders with their company's logo and send them directly to vendors via email.
Configurable Settings for Tailored Purchase Orders
POs can be customized with auto-generated project information and numbers, notes, references, and attachments. Custom lists of shipping contacts, cost codes, and three customizable fields add further flexibility.
User-Friendly Purchase Order Processing Dashboard
The Purchase Order Processing Dashboard provides instant visibility into the status of all Purchase Orders, enabling effective tracking and management.
Leveraging Data for Tangible Results
The Purchase Order Processing module offers an end-to-end process from request to order and fulfillment, relieving users of the burden of manually entering orders.
Automatic Vendor Price Comparison for Cost Control
The Purchase Order Processing module includes features like side-by-side vendor price comparison, and the ability to request and analyze quotes, ensuring users get the best price for every item, every time.
The Receiving module allows contractors to track the receipt of materials. This helps to ensure that materials are received on time and in the correct quantities.
Closing the Loop on Procurement
Orders can be marked received onsite or in the warehouse, ensuring complete tracking and eliminating the risk of missing orders.
Marking Orders Received in the Field or Office
Users can easily receive materials and log quantities directly from the mobile app, keeping all stakeholders informed.
Tracking Receiving Status on Mobile and Desktop
The status of all orders is readily available, allowing users to view received, partially received, and outstanding items.
