Topic: When purchasing an item, how to choose the cheapest supplier?
Let's take item nr. 1001 as an example. I can purchase this item from 5 different suppliers:
Supplier A: $ 0.90 / piece
Supplier B: $ 9.90 / dozen
Supplier C: $ 5.28 / box of six
Supplier D: $ 86 / per 100
Supplier E: € 650 / per 1.000
It would be nice if the Purchase Order Entry would offer an option like this:
First enter the item code.
Then show me a list of suppliers for this item, price according to "Purchasing Pricing", and price per piece (to our UOM and currency).
Then let me change the order of the list to (f.e.) cheapest supplier (per our UOM) on top.
Then let me place a Purchase Order for this supplier.
In this case, the list would look like this:
Item: 1001 (1001 - Paint can)
Supplier Price Currency Supplier's Unit Supplier's Description Price (our UOM/our currency)
B 9.90 USD per dozen Paint can (12) 0.825
E 650.00 EUR 1.000 Paint can 1.000 pc 0.858
D 86.00 USD 100 Paint can /100 pcs 0.860
C 5.28 USD box of 6 Paint can, 6 in box 0.880
A 0.90 USD a piece Paint can 0.900
As far as I can see, FA doesn't support this workflow. Or does it?
