11.3.0 Release Features and Functionality (March 2021)

BuyerQuest 11.3.0, released March 31, 2021, included a number of new and enhanced features, including payment via credit card.

Marketplace Module

Ordering for Multiple Locations

Buyers have the ability to order items for multiple locations in a single Request. The Checkout functionality offers the Multi-location Order page where the buyer specifies quantity, delivery details, and notes for each location.

Buyers may either mass update details for all the Preferred Locations or provide individual specifications by location for quantity, date, and other information. The functionality thus provides efficiencies in batching orders for multiple locations in a single Request while offering flexibility in specifying order details.

Multi-supplier Bundle Products Import Provides Efficiency

Buying organizations needing to offer bundles comprised of a large number of products and/or products from multiple suppliers are able to leverage a multi-supplier bundle import available in the admin control panel. The Bundle Products Import functionality eliminates manual configuration of bundles and is easy to configure and use as a file-based integration.

User Import Includes Additional Content Groups and Additional Shipping and Billing Locations

An expansion of the BuyerQuest User Import allows for assignment of additional Content Groups, along with default shipping and billing locations associated with the additional Content Groups. Buying organizations leveraging Content Groups benefit from this more efficient means of bulk assignment through import rather than manual selection for users and Content Groups in the Admin Control Panel.  

The User Import has been updated with fields for additional content groups, additional default shipping, additional default billing, and preferred locations.
