Procurement Problem - Spend Analysis
Can you help to solve this problem?
When capturing a PO for indirect spend, the users do not have to enter a material code, They enter free text and then then randomly select a material group. This messes up all the reporting we cannot do spend analysis on the indirect spend.
The business want us to introduce two new mandatory fields called category and sub-category which will be linked to the material group. This will force the user to properly classify the PO and we can report on it. The problem is that this will be a lot of customisation and development.
Any ideas on how we can regulate the capture of indirects and the use of free text?
