8.6.0 Release Features and Functionality (June 29, 2018)

BuyerQuest 8.6, released on June 30, 2018, includes a number of feature enhancements.

Payables Module

Settlement by Credit Card or P-Card Available at Checkout

BuyerQuest provides the functionality for Settlement by Credit Card or P-Card during Checkout. This enhanced payment functionality accommodates both types of card and offers a quick and easy payment solution that's comparable to an online consumer experience.

Settlement by card also supports owner/operators and organizations with decentralized accounts payable operations. It's a straightforward payment solution whose immediate and obvious benefit is that suppliers are paid more quickly. 

Configuration of this payment method is simple and straightforward at both the supplier and buyer levels. Buying organizations are afforded significant flexibility in the use of this functionality, as the payment method is configured by Content Group.

Card information is collected at Checkout and downstream processes proceed as usual. Invoice history and emails provide clear updates on payment status
