Overview

You can prefix the purchase order so you can better identify orders relating to different business units.

Recognition Consideration

Our advice is to keep it simple. Avoid a prefix of PO because the OCR engine might struggle to differentiate between an o and a 0 (zero). Use prefixes that are easy to recognise and aren’t similar to a number.
