Mobile PO and PR Release

Mobile SAP purchase order and purchase requisition release

The SAP PO or PR release strategy plays an important role in controlling budgets to avoid unnecessary expenditure and provides optimization of stock levels. The multi-level PO and PR release strategy provides a foolproof control mechanism to achieve this. On the flip side, as the numbers for the release of purchase orders or requisitions increases, the overall time required for releasing them also substantially increases.
