When we think of purchasing, we spontaneously think of software dedicated to purchasing management.
It is of course possible to connect CARL Source CMMS to an ERP or other financial management tool. This connection will be made via a fluid interface (in various formats, or via webservice): from the expression of need (purchase request) issued by the maintenance department in its CMMS, through to its management in another software package (ERP).
It’s easy to imagine an integrated, fluid purchasing management process, with maintenance personnel expressing their needs (purchase requisition) in the CMMS, and the need being taken into account in an external tool such as an ERP system already in place within the organization.
We then return to CARL Source when the goods are received, still closely linked to the financial system, to share pricing and order status information.
