The main documents generated by a purchasing department are generally purchase orders; which will in turn generate shipment notes, invoices and credit notes. On top of this, purchasing departments may generate contracts, tenders, framework agreements, request for proposals (RFP), requests for quotes (RFQ), invitation for bid and many more multi page documents. Many of these documents will form a legally binding agreement.

With such a variety of documentation in one department it is no wonder that an electronic document management solution is paramount to success of any organisation.
