8.12.0 Release Features and Functionality (December 28, 2018)

BuyerQuest 8.12.0, released on December 28, 2018, includes a number of new and enhanced features.

Marketplace Module

Shipping Method Displayed and Editable on Checkout Page   

Default and supported Shipping Methods may be specified and imported by Supplier, providing a framework for buyers to view and edit Shipping Methods on the Checkout page.  For items from suppliers with Shipping Methods specified, Shipping Methods are clearly displayed on Requests and Purchase Order pages and pdfs, providing an easy reference in these stages of the procurement workflow. 

Both cXML and ERP purchase orders include the specified Shipping Methods.

Shipping Methods may be included in the Supplier import. They can be managed in the Admin Control Panel at  Manage Shipping Methods. 

Subscription Purchasing Enables Automatic Reordering of Items

Subscriptions can be created for automated reordering of an item that is usually ordered on a regular basis. Subscription purchasing provides an efficient way to ensure that consumable items are always stocked by enabling automatic reorders at user-specified quantities and intervals. 

Subscription creation and management is available to properly permissioned users. This easy-to-use subscription feature removes the necessity of buyers having to check stock levels or set reminders for reorders. Subscription management on an item-by-item basis is available in the MY ACCOUNT settings.
