Introduction to Purchase Requisitions

Wiise Purchase Requisitions allows users to request the purchase of goods or services in an internally controlled Purchase Requisition journal. Wiise Purchase Requisitions uses workflows to direct purchase requests to an approver. All approved requisitions will then automatically generate consolidated purchase orders ready for release.

The Purchase Requisition and Purchase Requisition Approval journals can be found under the Purchasing menu.

The Purchase Requisition journal includes the following fields:

  • Item Number
  • Item Description
  • Quantity
  • Unit of Measure Code
  • Direct Unit Cost*
  • Total Unit Cost
  • Location Code
  • Vendor No.
  • Vendor Name
  • Requester ID
  • Approver Name
  • Priority
  • Status
  • Purchase Order Status
  • Purchase Order No.

Note: The Direct Unit Cost field will only populate for items that have been requested at least once before and the Purchase Order has been invoiced. For items being requested for the first time, the Direct Unit Cost field will show a default value of 0. Here’s how you can get around this:

  • You can set the purchase price for items without a purchase history using the Purchase Price functionality in Wiise.
  • Alternatively, you can approve the purchase requisition without the unit cost and manually update the purchase order with the appropriate amount.

The Approval User Setup page includes a brand-new field:

  • Purchase Request Approval

The Role Center will now include a new tile:

  • Requests Requisitions Request to Approve
