Field Material Requests for Purchasing

Learn how to process an FMR/Field Material Request without creating a purchase order (if you do not subscribe to the PO Processing module).

Table of Contents


 

A Field Material Request aka FMR originates in the field on the mobile app.  It is a way for the foreman to create a list of materials needed onsite and notify the PM.  If you subscribe to our PO Processing module, you can generate a PO from an FMR.  If you are not creating POs on the PeerAssist platform, the PM can simply use FMRs as a way to keep track of material orders in conjunction with your external purchasing process.  Keep reading to learn about processing FMRs without the PO element.
