A diamond company with footprints in U.S.A, India and Paris. The USA office was
responsible for instructing the purchase, the Paris team was responsible for sales
and the Indian team was responsible for the purchase.

Once they have a request for purchase, they will indicate the same to the USA team, which will instruct the Indian office to make the purchase for the diamond mentioned. The Quote will be raised by the Paris team, and this will be confirmed by the USA team, which will generate the Purchase Order, asking the team in India to complete the purchase.
