What is purchase order software?

How to make purchase orders a business best practice.

A purchase order, or PO, is a legal document that buyers send to suppliers. It outlines the terms of the transaction — types, amounts, and prices for products and services rendered. POs help buyers track what they’ve purchased, provide clear instructions to vendors, and secure a paper trail if anything goes wrong. They’re also legally binding: Once you issue a PO to your supplier, you must pay them. POs also enable buyers to purchase items on credit, which is especially helpful if you're growing your business.

Since, as a buyer, you’re responsible for drafting the PO, you’ll want to use a reliable PO software for a smooth transaction process.
