Procurement & Purchasing Software


Aestiva Purchasing Software

When it comes to purchasing and procurement, you need management control and options. Lots of them. Aestiva purchasing software gives you the tools you need and the flexibility you demand in a procurement solution.

Most small business owners understand the correlation between technology and revenue.

To be effective, sales teams need CRM applications and other tools that drive the revenue generation process. But cost efficiency is just as important as revenue generation, and today's purchasing and procurement software applications deliver impressive results.

Aestiva has been a leader in workplace automation since 1995. They offer a range of software solutions designed to streamline office routines and improve operations. One of their notable product offerings is their line of purchasing and procurement software applications.

Aestiva's purchasing software can be installed in-house or accessed through a cloud computing platform. It is a browser-based application that gives your purchasing personnel reliable access to vendor information and company data. And like many purchasing solutions, it's modular so you can scale the solution to your company's requirements. Aestiva's modules center around three base systems: A Purchase Order system, a Procurement system and an Invoice Approval system.

Purchase Order

The Purchase Order base system lets you create customized POs that integrate with approval flows and sign-off mechanisms. With a single click you can send purchasing reports to spreadsheets and charting software. The system automatically generates next action email notifications to the appropriate staff, managers and supervisors, and provides tools for vendor management. A cornerstone of this module is its ability to post invoices against POs.


Aestiva's Procurement module gives your company the tools you need to manage supply requests. It includes multi-supplier request features that support request splits, request merging, change orders and other common procurement functions. Some of the additional features of this module are pricing, RFQ creation, order receipt tools, and the ability to match and close POs.

Invoice Approval

The Invoice Approval module automates the approval of invoice payment requests. Instead of taking invoices around the office for approval, the system handles it for you. You can also batch send approved payment requests to your A/R department and generate custom reports containing invoice data.
