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).

Project Accounting + Multi-currency + Inventory Items = No Worky

Just confirmed via Microsoft support today that if you’re using Multi-currency in your Project Accounting projects, you cannot add the Inventory Item Cost Category to the project if the project currency is different from the company Functional Currency.  This is due lack of multi-currency capability in the inventory module.
