3.8 eForm Search

The eForm Search allows you to retrieve, complete and attach electronic forms to a shopping basket in order for them to be routed for approval and possibly transmitted to a third party through PECOS.

Advantages of eForms

There are a number of benefits in using PECOS as a repository for your organisation’s regularly used forms and documents:

  • Saves time completing paper forms
  • Ensures consistency in the use of forms
  • Accuracy of completion
  • Approvals are quicker
  • Ensures approvals are consistent
  • Output is accurate and clear

eForms generally consist of your company’s internal business documents such as expense reports, holiday requests or absence/leave forms. External forms that require transmitting to third parties can also be loaded electronically.
