Introducing Purchase Orders

Fully integrated with your Programa Schedules
Updated: 21 March 2024

Our vision at Programa has always been to build a beautifully designed, no-compromise solution for interior design & architecture workflows. Thousands of designers worldwide now use Programa to specify and manage projects, and today, we take a step closer to becoming the true end-to-end solution for interior designers.

Introducing Programa’s latest feature, Purchase Orders, designed to make your procurement process seamless and efficient. When we spoke to designers about how they currently manage purchase orders, the common frustration was that current processes are “too time-consuming”. That’s why our new Purchase Orders are fully integrated with your Programa Schedules, meaning creating and sending purchase orders takes a matter of minutes, without the need to copy and paste information into other tools.

With Programa’s Purchase Orders, you can:

  • Quickly and easily create purchase orders using all the information already in your Programa Schedules.
  • Send purchase orders, add delivery addresses and notes, and email them to your suppliers directly, all without leaving Programa.
  • Receive notifications when your supplier opens your purchase order, giving you complete peace of mind during the procurement process.
  • Resend or send reminders to your suppliers, making it easier to keep track of your procurement process.

Purchase Orders come with a PDF summary and spec sheets for each product, ensuring that all the information you, your clients and your suppliers need is easily accessible.

By using Programa’s Purchase Orders, you can take control of your supplier engagement like never before while saving hours of manual data entry, leaving you more time to work on what’s important.

Available now to all Programa users as part of your Pro subscription.
