Today, many vendors uses online systems to record purchases and/or sells. Sending a purchase order in PDF is, of course, beautiful and clean, but when it comes to register a received PO as PDF in the system is long and risky of errors. In Zoho we have the possibility to import one or more POs or to export all POs at once. We cant export ONE PO only (afaik), so when I send a PO to my vendor, it may be difficult for him to insert it into his system, specially when my POs concerns thousands of items.
