Creating Requisition Questionnaires is easy and intuitive
Enhance communications, streamline entry, and prompt users to provide key information for specific charges, as a requirement or as an option.
Some purchases are straightforward and simple, requiring no clarification or background detail. But for those that are less than simple, a requisition questionnaire becomes a useful tool to allow the procurement department to gather the facts, figures, and details surrounding a purchase in a systematic way.
Paramount WorkPlace provides the ability to setup requisition questionnaires by the Expense Type referenced on individual lines in the requisition. Expense Types of Information Technology (IT), for example, are more likely to require the details a questionnaire can gather than is an Expense Type of Office Supplies. A questionnaire for IT purchase might include questions surrounding technical requirements, justification for the purchase, product specifications, and a list of vendors being considered.
Requisition questionnaires in Paramount WorkPlace are highly configurable yet easy to set up, requiring no programming skill. Fields on the questionnaires may be designated as required, and the input data can be formatted as date, numeric, text, or freeform comments.
Once a questionnaire is completed, it becomes part of the requisition and available for authorized approvers to view and add to as needed.
