What is PO Convert?
PO Convert allows portal users to easily review, accept, and then convert purchase orders into e-invoices at the click of a button.
The benefits of PO Convert for you:
What does this mean for me?
- From the Go Live date in the below table, any new POs raised by Nestlé will be available to view within the Tungsten Network Portal with the ability to automatically convert those POs to invoices with one click.
- POs will show on the portal within 2-5 days from the Go Live date in the below table.
- It is important to note that historical POs will not be available to view in the portal and invoices will still need to be raised via the Web Form.
- Any rejection on the Tungsten portal does not trigger any automatic message to Nestlé. The supplier should inform Nestlé directly.
- Nestlé will also continue to email POs directly to you.

Why is Nestlé implementing PO Services?
As part of Nestlé’s ongoing commitment to improving efficiency and supplier experience, the roll-out of PO Convert will speed up the sending and receiving of POs and invoices; ultimately, ensuring timely payment on goods delivered.
Our key objective of PO Services is to:
Make e-invoicing faster and easier for our suppliers by eliminating data entry, that takes time, can be error-prone, which causes delays and invoice rejections.

FAQs: PO Convert
Firstly, check your PO or Nestlé customer entity is in scope with this project above. Assuming your PO is in scope, please check the portal again in a few hours. If you still cannot see your PO, please contact Tungsten Support by submitting a ticket at the bottom of this page.
If your Nestlé customer is not in scope, please continue to send invoices in the normal way.
For Nestlé suppliers, POs will start to appear on the portal between 2-5 working days from the Go Live date in the above table. Please continue to check the ‘My POs’ section of the portal. If you are expecting a PO but after 5 days you still cannot see the PO on the portal, please contact Tungsten Support. If you can see a PO on the portal, you will be able to use the convert functionality.
As shown in the help video and PDF guide, you can check the ‘My POs’ section of your Tungsten portal account. Additionally, if you would like to receive email notifications when a new PO is showing on your account, please contact Tungsten Support who can help set this up.
Nestlé’s policy is to issue a PDF PO to suppliers when goods or services are required. From the Go Live date in the above table onwards, these POs will also be available on the Tungsten portal for PO Convert.
- If you have a PDF PO, you should be able to see it in the portal.
- If Nestlé has ordered goods/services from you, and you do not have a PDF PO, please contact your Nestlé customer.
