Chalkstring produces standardised purchase orders, that reference back to the supplier’s quote and contain information relating to the material or labour order. And to make life easier, Chalkstring automatically creates separate orders for multiple suppliers, simultaneously.

Use one streamlined system to place orders easily
Accurately calculating what rebates are owed can be complex without the cumulative and detailed order information. And it’s even harder when there are different rebates for various materials or tiered rebates based on project spend. In reality, calculating rebates often involves tedious manual work to verify that the rebate is correct, leaving you at the mercy of the supplier.
With Chalkstring you have the power. The software has a full audit trail of everything you’ve ordered, which you can share with your supplier. Forget wasting time searching for information and relying on your suppliers, you have the information at hand to ensure you’re paid what’s owed.
