  • Your employees can create a request to buy stuff they need such as a new laptop, 5 grams of A4 paper, 10 cups of tea, …
  • Your managers can approve or refuse the request. Managers mentioned here are the department manager of the employee (1st approval), the purchase user who is in charge of checking the good price and good vendor (2nd approval), the purchase manager to make the final approval (3rd approval). In case the request exceeds the limit, the finance manager will have to approve (4th approval).
