Order Quotation

Order a Quotation WITHOUT SAP connection:

If your organizational unit works in FUTURA without an SAP connection and thus only uses the request/quotation process, you can  log the awarding in the system in the "Quotations" tab of a Request by clicking on the button “Order Quotation”.

Order a quotation WITH SAP connection:

To order a Quotation, mark the desired Quotation in the Quotation list of the Request and click on the button "Order quotation":



  1. The Request must be completed (status "completed").

  2. Ordering is only possible with the corresponding right "Order quotation".


Important information:

When the price comparison list is opened, the negotiated quotation is ordered from the price comparison list . Please note that any adjustments to the quotation items list in the price comparison list (concerning the columns → Unit price, discount, used) will be included in the Order.

The following conditions apply:


  1. Only services used are transferred to the Order items list. In the Price Watch, this applies to all service lines in which an "x" is set in the "Used" column or was subsequently set (e.g., for Requisition items that have not set an "x" by default).

  2. Normal lines, basic lines, alternative lines, and Requisition lines with unit price = 0 are not transferred to the Order items list

  3. Basic lines, alternative lines, and Requisition lines are converted to normal lines in the Order items list.


When ordering a quotation from a Request, unlike an Order from a Requisition, the purchase requisition assignment/generation is moved to the Order. Therefore, there is no automatic transfer to SAP. The Order first receives the status "in preparation" and is created as a transaction without an order number. In the status "in preparation", the content of the Order can be adjusted, e.g., header data, SAP data, attachments and the items list can be changed. Depending on the configuration in your organizational unit, after finalization of the Order, the purchase requisition is imported, or the purchase requisition is created from or into SAP.
