Creating a Purchase Order From a Quote

You can turn a quote into a PO easily in Powered Now

With a couple of clicks, you can easily convert a Quote/Estimate to a purchase order and send it to your supplier.

There a few ways to do this and I will show you how below...

Using The Quick Action Buttons

Click New Purchase Order and select your supplier, then select your customer. 

If you have previously created a quote for this customer you will be greeted with a pop-up screen where you can quickly select the quote and convert it directly to a purchase order.
