TurbineHQ is Awesome ... We Will Start Using it Again
Comments: My non-profit company actively used Turbine's purchase order application from June of 2014 through February of 2015. We discontinued using Turbine because there was no way to delete "completed" purchase orders and our account got very cluttered. We never cancelled our account, and when I logged in to do research for this review, I noticed that there is now a "delete" option for each order. I don't know if this feature existed in the past and we overlooked it, but that seems unlikely since the "delete" button is quite prominently displayed. Whatever the case, our company will resume using TurbineHQ to organize and prioritize our future purchases now that our biggest problem with the application has been solved.
Easy to learn/use Affordable pricing Different permission/approval levels Lots of space for notes/adding coupon codes
Does not add exact date of creation/approval/completion of purchase orders. Employees must remember to add a note with the date any time there is a status change.

Thanks for the kind review and helpful feedback. By design, we don't allow people to delete 'completed' purchase orders to prevent fraud. You can delete POs prior to approval however, which is the delete button is sometimes visible and sometimes not. However, you can use the filter menu to hide completed POs from your views to reduce clutter. Also, on request to [email protected] we can add a no-cost customisation to your account to allow admin users to delete completed POs. The system does indeed store the exact date of creation/approval/completion for each request - you can see it by in the comments audit trail under the request. Just hover your mouse of the time stamp, ie where it says 'yesterday' or 'last week' and you'll get the exact time and date.
Comments: During the time I was working for Electric, we set up a lot of onboarding and offboarding request from different companies, the real-time synchronization it's amazing, as soon as the user is created and we provide all accesses according to the request (zoom account, office 365 access, dropbox, etc) the user it is ready to be in use.
I consider it is easy to use, I liked the fact no all people could place a request for onboarding or offboarding processes because it has restrictive access, the interface is very friendly and we don't have to install any software on the computer every time is online, I like the way how it reflects the user status to know what else is left or it has been done.
During the time I was using it I didn't have any issues.
I turned to this application to stay abreast of the costs associated with numerous distinct manufacturing prototypes that were in progress at the exact same time. Setting up dozens of projects and creating individual accounts for everyone. It was a delight to record all purchases and upload receipts to each POs.
In my opinion, the website is relatively slow to load and respond. I wish the print option would generate pdf files rather than the web pages printed from the print button. For a more professional-looking document, you must first download to PDF and afterwards print from there. But altogether, it's a fantastic product.
Comments: A great approval system overall!
Just about everything is good with this product, it's easy to use good looking interface and the approval system is well done.
Sometimes the site does take a long time to respond to us but I just figure that's the internet lag from Europe to the US, I wish the print button would print pdf's all around instead of the webpage that it prints from the print menu. You have to export to PDF and then print that for a cleaner looking form. But it's a great product overall.
