Application Navigation

Application Components – Top Tabs

After logging in, a row of tabs will appear at the top of the screen to provide Single Sign On (SSO) access to all of the Elcom applications to which you have permission.

The default application in which you land can be changed for your organisation or user profile but will invariably be the PECOS P2P. Other tabs will appear based on your user permissions and may include, P2P Administration, P2P Reports, eSourcing, Contract Management and eInvoicing.

Branding and System Name

Your organisation may have created a new name for PECOS. If so, the Top Tab area will display your organisation’s bespoke name for the application, replacing any generic ‘PECOS’ or ‘Elcom’ logo. These changes may also include your organisation’s logo and the application of your internal branding and colour scheme (known as a ‘skin’).

User Panel

The top right hand corner displays your logged in User Name. Hover or click in this area to open the User Panel where you will find access to user specific functions.

Not all of the menu options will display if you have not been granted user permissions by your system administrator.

Items: Opens the item search page where supplier catalogues and external marketplace sites are displayed. Items are selected here and added to a shopping basket.

To Do: The screen displays lists of requisitions, orders and invoices that require your attention as part of the approval or settlement process. Approvers will find all documents requiring their approval here and requisitioners will find any document that has been returned to them during the approval process which requires further action.

Your shopping basket will be submitted as a purchase requisition: this is where you manage things like financial tracking codes, comments, attachments and delivery details.
