Dynamics GP Purchasing – Request for Quotations module

Thinking about this subject, can’t find a company who does not follow the standards in their procurement process, everyone brings 3 quotations from 3 different suppliers and selects the best fit from requirements and pricing! I found this process on Connect requested since 2010 with very limited votes! I would kindly ask for your help in voting and getting this scheduled soon, below the description of the product suggestion: I think Dynamics GP is one of the few applications in the ERP world that does not have the request for quotation functionality, the process is like this: – RFQ (enter details for items willing to purchase) – Select one or more vendors and the system should print separate RFQ for each (and prepare the system to receive responses from each) – Receive quotes from Vendors and update on system – Compare vendor’s prices against same lines in RFQ – transfer one of the quotes to Purchase order Note: The is the simplest cycle possible and there are many other advanced consideration that can be added later on like: – Issuing PO against more than one vendor quote for same RFQ – Ability to update quotation with new discounts and data maintaining original information and changes (quote version control).
