The best procurement software for small businesses that integrates with Quickbooks?

joseph leighty's Profile

We are interested in upgrading our software to include automated procurement. We have multiple vendors for the same products, and each sell them at differing prices. We want a software that will automatically create a PO or multiple POs based on the lowest price. Most importantly it has to seamlessly integrate with quickbooks. From my research the software that do this are far to expensive for small businesses, and the ones that are not do not integrate well with quickbooks. Are there any softwares out that integrate well with quickbooks and are affordable for small business?

I don't have a lot of experience with these packages - but a few you might want to check out: Expensewatch, B-pack, TrxLink, and SpendMap. All have slightly different modules/offerings, are built around procurement, and work with Quickbooks at some level. They seem to be priced for small businesses.

It sounds like you want to compare bids on a spot buy basis at the time of order. You may also want to consider moving to a preferred vendor, doing an RFP and negotiating better pricing on your typical purchases up front (not at the time of the PO), and using their online catalog (most have them for goods) to order. Vendors can usually setup a page/account just for your company.

PurchaseControl www.PurchaseControl.com is an excellent solution with full integration to QuickBooks. Workflow automation, Vendor approval, budgeting and advanced reporting. Not sure what else it integrates with but seamless with Quickbooks.
