Product Release Notes: Procurement Platform highlights in February releases

As we step into the new year, we're excited to present the first set of highlights from our January & February releases, focused on enhancing your experience in Basware Procurement. Dive into these updates, designed to bring more control and efficiency to your daily interactions.

1. Self-Service Punchout Setup: 

In our commitment to providing more autonomy, we've empowered buyer administrators with the ability to add new punchouts (external webshops) in Product Manager as a self-service. This offers more independence for Integrated shopping experience customers familiar with external webshop setups, allowing you to shape your shopping environment to your preferences.
  • Configuration details must be verified with the supplier before initiating the punchout setup
  • To activate the Agent punchout agreement feature, please reach out to Basware support.
  • Supplier registration in the Marketplace is a prerequisite.

2. Enhanced Visibility in Quick Source: 

Quick Source now offers enhanced visibility with two new sections—Quotes and Responses. These sections provide valuable insights into the number of suppliers quoting and those responding by withdrawing the quote.
  • When the supplier withdraws from quoting back to the request raised by the requestor, or first quotes and then withdraws the quote, it will be counted as a response and displayed in Quick Source.
  • The Responses page includes separate sections to highlight suppliers who have withdrawn from quoting.
  • If a supplier quotes and subsequently withdraws, they will be listed in the Quotes section with a Withdrawn label.

3. Tools for Power Users: Effective & Configurable Task Lists: 

We have enhanced the user experience for purchase business users who manage tasks daily. Notable features include:
  • Desktop-optimized power user view for purchase requisition, purchase order, and goods receipt tasks.
  • Improved sorting, filtering, and searching capabilities provided by the power user view.
  • Configurable task lists allow users to tailor available columns based on their preferences.
  • Users can now easily modify the order and visibility of columns, ensuring a personalized and efficient workflow. To enable the power user view, access the feature through User Settings.
Feel free to actively explore these features and engage with Basware for a seamless and enriched experience. For detailed information on these updates and more, visit our features page.
