Oracle Tip #7 - Professional Buyer's Work Center
Attention all Procurement buyers! Have you discovered the power of the Professional Buyer's Work Center?
Released in Procurement 12.0, the Professional Buyer Work Center (PBWC) is a web based interface that provides a central 'launch pad' from which you can efficiently perform your daily tasks, including:
You can manage your requisitions and create them to Purchase Orders (like manual autocreate).
Create new standard purchase orders, blanket purchase agreements, or contract purchase agreements.
Create and maintain supplier information.
If Oracle Sourcing is licensed and implemented, you can create buyer's auctions or sourcing RFQs all from the same HTML Page.
If Oracle Services Procurement is licensed and implemented you can create and maintain purchase orders for complex work payments.
If Oracle Procurement Contracts is licensed and implemented you can handle author contract terms and manage deliverables.
