Departments need not be in one location and can be located any where across the world. In other words, purchase department will know the exact material requirement data item wise and they easily can plan for purchase schedule.
Example, material required on the 10th day of the production process, and the supplier lead time is two days from the date of purchase order, purchase department can place the order on the seventh day or on the eight day so that the material will be available on the tenth day. The money for the material is not blocked for seven days and hence can be utilized for other priorities.

Once information is generated, automatic alerts and reminders are posted too. Today's web technology allows facility to post alerts and reminders through SMS, and to schedule the task until it is completed.
