Klipboard gives you the option to copy the line items from your Quote directly into a Purchase Order or multiple Purchase Orders, which can then be sent to the relevant Suppliers. This applies to Quotes in any status (Draft, Sent, Accepted or Won).
Our smart grouping means that your Quote product line items will be grouped by Inventory Supplier speeding up the process of creating the Purchase Order from the quote. For the grouping to work, an Inventory product has to be listed in your Klipboard Inventory with a Supplier associated - click here for Inventory information.
Once your Quote is accepted and Converted to a Job, the Purchase Order(s) created from this quote, will also add to the job automatically, saving you time and effort.
