Lets Talk Purchase Orders and AP Automation


I ask Siri everything…. what my schedule is, if I have any texts (my 4-year-old daughter calls it test) or emails. Siri is also my personal assistant when I need to call someone or create an appointment or a reminder.  She is happy to do anything I ask… like where to bury a dead body (ask her – she will tell you).

Here is what I did:

This week I am starting a new series on purchase orders and Accounts Payable (AP) Automation. Naturally, I went to Siri to see what advice she had.

I asked:

“What do you know about purchase orders?” Siri said, “I know?” So I asked again, “What do you know about purchase orders?” She said, “Here is what I found on the web”. A purchase order (PO) is a commercial document and first official offer issued by a buyer to a seller, indicating types, quantities, and agreed prices for products or services the seller will provide to the buyer”

Thanks Siri!

She came through again… it took her a few tries but came through with a good definition. However this week I am going to go beyond wordy definitions. This week I am going to write about:

      • Purchase Order History
      • Reason 1 – Procurement
      • Reason 2 – Control
      • PO and AP Automation

One Last Thing – JOKE

When my son was very young when he would say something that he thought was funny he would announce, “JOKE”!

Here is a story. An invoice walks in a bar and is mad… very mad… kicking tables, cursing, stomping around the bar… the bartender asked, “why are you so mad?” The invoice said, “I’m not mad, I am just P-Oed” JOKE!
