Request Approval Routing
Organizations generate many different types of requests every day in the course of
doing business which require review and approval by one or more people within the
organization, including PO Requisitions, Customer Sales Quotes, CapEx requests,
Expense requests, Vacation requests, Customer credit limit changes, IT change orders,
and the list goes on……
Many of these requests are performed either via email or paper forms, or in the worst
case, verbally! The review and approval process for these requests is in many cases
inefficient and difficult to track, causing delays in the process. These delays can cause
production issues, sales order processing issues, cash flow issues, employee morale
issues, and ultimately negatively affect the bottom line.
iApprove™ is a web-based approval routing solution utilizing Progress Webspeed and Ajax
technology designed to create request forms quickly and efficiently, and to ‘dynamically’
route a request to one or more people within your organization for review and approval
based on the data in the request and the rules that YOU configure. Once a request has been
approved, iApprove will perform a function such as creating a Project/Budget in QAD EA, or
updating a master file, or sending an email to accounting to cut a check…and the list goes
on. iApprove™ is available as an integrated solution for QAD EA, or it can be implemented
as a stand-alone solution, and/or integrated with other ERP applications.

iRFQ™ generates requests that are simple for suppliers to review. The simpler the request is to evaluate, the more quotes you are likely to receive.Suppliers can securely enter their bids online in the iRFQ™ system. When you issue an RFQ to your existing Suppliers, they will receive an email inviting them to bid on your project. When the vendor clicks on their dedicated link, they’ll be taken directly to the bid entry page. Suppliers do not need to register or remit any supplier network fees.
iRFQ™ helps you review your quotes side by side. When you’ve been awarded the winning bid, the system automatically creates a requisition in ISS Group’s iPurchase™ solution from the information in the RFQ.
