Purchase Orders

Sortly’s Purchase Order feature is designed to streamline your procurement process, allowing you to order supplies when needed effortlessly. With Sortly’s user-friendly interface, you can easily compile a purchase order using your existing inventory information.

Sortly makes populating your list with crucial information simple, enabling you to pull in critical details like item photos, names, costs, quantities, and more. Once your order is ready, email the Purchase Order to your supplier to get the necessary supplies.
