We are excited to announce that BuyerQuest has been featured as the cover story in the Procurement Edition of CIO Applications Magazine. The article, “Bringing a B2C User Experience to Corporate Procurement”, highlights our unique value proposition to large and small corporations alike, with our ability to transform the complex corporate buying process into a simplified, B2C-like shopping experience.
Changing the Focus of Procurement
The article notes how BuyerQuest has changed the focus of Procurement away from the purchasing department, staffed by a small number of experts, to the rest of the corporation, many of whom struggle to make purchases necessary as part of their role. These individuals often circumvent internal purchasing due to the unnecessary complexity, instead making off-contract purchases, which leads to increased operating costs. BuyerQuest solves for this by providing a one-stop shopping experience with a simple, but powerful, user experience.
The CIO Applications article also remarks on the extraordinary number of users that leverage BuyerQuest for purchasing, across multiple industries representing both Fortune 500 and mid-market companies. These metrics validate the simplicity of the procure-to-pay application, which requires little to no training to get started.
Customers Play a Critical Role
BuyerQuest’s user experience and underlying technology are only one component driving the company’s success. CIO Applications goes on to discuss the critical role that BuyerQuest’s customers play in the evolution of the technology and adherence to best practices. Customer input, combined with the deep internal purchasing expertise within the BuyerQuest organization, results in an eProcurement application delivering quantifiable value not only to Procurement, but to the overall corporation's bottom line.
