Create and Edit Purchase Orders (PO #s)

Avionté provides users with the ability to allocate multiple Purchase Orders to a start. If there is ever a time when a contractor is assigned to various projects for one client, Avionté users can easily track and manage what has been completed and which projects are pending completion.

Note: The Threshold Notifications don't work for Integrated Clients.
