Hoping for Free Purchase Order Software from Santa?

The old software was hung,
The users cried “It’s not fair”.
The Purchasing Manager pulled out,
What was left of her hair.

“We can’t take it no more,
This old system’s the pits.
It’s time for a new one,
We’re at the end of our wits.”

“But we don’t have the money”,
The CEO said with chagrin,
“We’ll just have to wait,
For more cash to come in.”

They were sad and frustrated,
They’d heard so many NOs.
How they longed for new software,
To automate their POs.

But then SpendMap came through,
With PO software for FREE,
And things soon got much better,
Oh, the hope and the glee!

They just couldn’t believe,
It does seem kinda funny,
That their fancy new software,
Didn’t cost any money!

And it works so darn well,
They process POs and receive,
They email Purchase Orders to suppliers,
With no paper and such ease.

But that’s just what we do,
It just how we give back.
It’s our pleasure to give you,
This little gift from Spend-Map.

Happy Holidays from your friends at the Free-Procurement Project.

Avoid File Hosting Services for your Free Purchase Order Software

Please do not try to use Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive, Google Drive or other cloud-based file hosting services for your free Windows/desktop version of SpendMap.  It just doesn’t work.

You can certainly back up your system/database to those services; you just can’t install your active/live database there. 

That’s because, as with other database applications, the files/tables in SpendMap’s database are constantly being opened and updated as you process Purchase Orders and other transactions in SpendMap.  And when files are being copied/uploaded to those cloud-based file hosting services, they are locked and not accessible to SpendMap and so you will get a runtime error if SpendMap tries to access the files as they are being moved up to the cloud (which happens each time a file is modified).

That said, you can certainly 1) exit/close SpendMap and then, 2) copy your database folder to Dropbox, OneDrive or Google Drive as a backup, while SpendMap is not running.  Again, you just can’t keep the live/active database files there.  For more details, please see the section “Backup and Restore Procedures”, in the Getting Started Documentation that comes with the software.

And just as a reminder, if you want your SpendMap data to be stored in the Cloud, we offer a SaaS version as well. You can try a free demo of our Cloud-based Purchase Order Software here.

Working from home and your Free Purchase Order Software

Many of us are still working from home and may be for some time yet.  If you need to access your SpendMap system while out of the office, you can join the growing number of people who have upgraded to our SaaS/Cloud version so that you can use SpendMap from any computer with an Internet connection.

Here are some common questions from folks like you who have already made the switch…

Will I lose any of my work in SpendMap?

No, you won’t lose anything.  All your work in the free Windows/desktop version will be brought forward including all your Master File data (suppliers, items, account codes, etc.), all your transactions (Purchase Orders, receipts, etc.), all your configuration/settings and so on.  You’ll pick right up in the Cloud version where you left off in the Free Version.

What are the requirements?

All you need is a standard web browser and an Internet connection.  We support all major browsers including Chrome, Internet Explorer, Edge, Firefox and Safari.

How much does it cost?

Your monthly subscription is just $20/user and $20/module.  So, if you’re the only user and you’re just using the Purchasing Module, it’ll be $40/month.  If you’re also using the Receiving Module, that’s another $20/month, as are additional user licenses.

Your monthly subscription includes hosting in Microsoft’s Azure Cloud, daily backups, new releases and tech support.

Will I need any training?

Nope.  The SaaS/Cloud version works just like the Free Version that you’re used to, so you’ll feel right at home while working at home 🙂

Are there any other benefits?

Well, aside from being able to access SpendMap from anywhere and not having to worry about backups or applying updates, once you’re on our our paid version you could add additional modules that aren’t available in our Free Version.

Sounds great, how do I order?

Just send us an email at info@spendmap.com or fill in the form at the top of this page and a friendly Spend-Mapper will get in touch with you quickly and make arrangements to upgrade your system.

COVID-19 Update and your Free Purchase Order Software

We are fully up-and-running from our home offices and there is no disruption to any of our products and services.  As always, The Free Version of SpendMap is ready when you are, as is our free tech support.

If you are already using the free Windows/desktop version of SpendMap and would like to upgrade to our web-based version so that you can access the system while out of the office, pricing now starts at just $40/month.

Upgrading is easy and we’ll preserve all the data in your free system, so you won’t lose a thing…you’ll just pick right up where you left off.

To place an order or if you have any questions or need a quote, please email free-procurement@spendmap.com.

Stay safe everyone!

A Gift of Free Purchase Order Software for you.

The old software was hung,
The users cried “It’s not fair”.
The Purchasing Manager pulled out,
What was left of his hair.

We can’t take it no more,
This old system’s the pits,
It’s time for a new one,
We’re at the end of our wits.

But we don’t have the money,
The CEO said with chagrin,
We’ll just have to keep waiting,
For more cash to come in.

They were sad and frustrated,
They’d heard so many NOs,
How they longed for new software,
To automate their POs.

But then SpendMap came through,
With PO software for FREE,
And things soon got much better,
Oh, the hope and the glee!

They just couldn’t believe,
It does seem kinda funny,
That their fancy new software,
Didn’t cost any money!

And it works so darn well,
They process POs and receive,
And email orders to vendors,
With no paper and such ease.

But that’s just what we do,
It is how we give back,
It’s our pleasure to give you,
This little gift from SpendMap.

Happy Holidays from your friends at SpendMap and the Free-Procurement Project.
