Eliminates Fraud

Purchase orders are created in line with business rules, and many companies have a No PO No Pay policy. They follow an approval process to ensure business need, approved supplier, and budget allowance. Matching an approved purchase order with a GRN and invoice prevents paying for undelivered goods/services and minimizes unethical employees colluding with suppliers for fraudulent gain.

Accurate tracking of supplies

Knowledge of goods ordered, delivery & settlement dates makes it easy to see what has been delivered, and paid for. If there is a dispute over an invoice having this transparency makes it easier if it comes to litigation.

Saving Costs/increasing profits

It is easier to keep track of goods ordered, price differences for the same goods from multiple suppliers, late deliveries, part shipments etc enabling the procurement team to be more agile with ordering and more effective at cost saving.


When auditors require supporting documents for payments, having the GRN and PO available to back up the payments made not only makes the process quicker and provides full visibility of the audit trail but also shows transparency.
