Purchasing with Abio

Whether you start your job with a take-off list from your estimator, or purchase items as needed, Abio can manage your purchasing process.

In this course we’ll show you how to import a materials take-off list into a requisition. You can then generate a series of RFQs, or Request for Quotations, for different items from your list.

When you’ve selected the vendors you want to work with, you can import their quote and convert it to a purchase order. When you complete your purchase it becomes the basis of an invoice. You can approve payment and issue cheques, either printed or electronically.

At each step in the purchasing process you can upload the documents you accumulate: invoices, purchase orders, receiving slips, etc. Abio will track back to these documents and collect them into a single PDF to include when you pass on the cost of materials to your client.
