The BirchStreet Supplier-on-the-Fly (SOTF) feature was designed for properties that have relationships with and rely on small specialty suppliers like a local hardware store or the local plumber. This feature allows users to input basic profile information for these smaller local suppliers. The setup is minor and when completed, users can transact with these suppliers through a system generated email or fax. Once a SOTF Purchase Order or Requisition has been created, it is subject to the same business rules and financial controls as any other order. The BirchStreet SOTF feature is one of the many features aimed at allowing your organization to collect 100% of your spend where it can be processed in accordance with your business rules and captured in a central database for reporting and analysis.
