11.12.0 Release Features and Functionality (December 2021)

BuyerQuest 11.12.0, released December 31, 2021, included new and enhanced features.

Platform Module

Parallel Processing Queue Improves Processing Performance

BuyerQuest platform performance is appreciably enhanced by the implementation of a parallel processing queue for running transactions and reports online. Buying organizations benefit from the resulting increased throughput and accuracy provided by processes running in parallel mode. 

Marketplace Module

SKU and Product Name Added as Conditions for Request Approval Rules        

Buying organizations are able to route requests to approvers based on SKUs and Product Names to allow for purchase compliance on specific products.

SKU and Product Name have been added to conditions for Request Approval Rules, which behave similarly to existing Receiving and Invoice Approval Rules. The additional conditions available for these rule configurations provide greater flexibility and specificity in the governance of Request Approvals.

Billing Location Name Added as a Condition for Request Approval Rules   

Request Approvals may also be routed based on Billing Location Name at either the header or the line level.

This condition is similar to the condition used to trigger a rule based on a specific Shipping Location Name.

Deliver To Field Label is Configurable 

A Marketplace configuration allows buying organizations to change the label on the Deliver To field. An organization may provide a different label for this field to guide buyers in populating the field correctly. 

When the label is changed via the system-wide configuration, the field will show the label change in My Account, Checkout pages, Documents, and Email Notifications.
