Starting Today, 15 More Vendors Automatically Fill in Description and Category
Effective today, item lists will be available for the following 15 vendors. That means when you’re entering an SOP for one of these vendors, you’ll be able to type the vendor’s item ID, and ePro will fill in the item’s description, category code and unit of measure:
Vendor Number Vendor Name
V000000454 CAROLINA BIOLOGICAL
V000001558 LABORATORY SAFETY
V000007189 SOUTHERN MICROSCOPE
V000101618 BETHYL LABS
V000115285 TRILINK BIOTECH
V000125143 RESEARCH DIETS
V000176191 BENCHMARK TECH
V000022962 MIDWEST SCIENTIFIC
We’re continuing to work with vendors to set up more item lists, though not all vendors are able to provide this functionality.
Note: The item lists are only updated periodically, so you may encounter new items that are not available in ePro. You’ll need to enter the complete line information for these items until they are added.
How to Tell if a Check Has Been Cut for an SOP Document
If the status of your SOP document is “Complete,” the check has been cut. You can view payment details in Finance Central, the same way you would for a check request.
