Requisition Software Systems Streamline Purchase Requests and Approvals
What Is a Requisition System?
Requisition systems allow internal employees to request items or services which is often called a purchase requisition. The purchase request or requisition request is made to the department or group that makes the purchase through an automated system. There is often an approval process attached to the requisition which may lead to a purchase order. These systems fall into the same category as procurement software.
Requisitions are made by completing a requisition form, either paper or digital. The information gathered by the form includes all the relevant details needed by approvers to make the decision and purchasers to create a purchase order.
Common Types of Requisitions
- Job Requisition
- Material Requisition
- Payment Requisition
- Supply Requisition

Requisition Process Example: PPE Requisition
In this example, an employee or manager wants to request PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). The workflow includes a request form and an automated process that routes the form.
While this example is fairly straightforward, its form and process can be customized to work however your business needs it to work. You might add additional questions to the form to get more detail, for instance. You could route the request differently, perhaps to another layer of approval or a different department. The possibilities are endless.
