Organizations using Business Prime Essentials/Basics can now create Guided Buying policies to mark certain products or sellers as ‘preferred’ or certain categories as ‘restricted.' This helps their buyers to purchase products more efficiently and in compliance with company rules.


It gives organizations greater control over their spend, reduces procurement costs, negates the need for lots of manual approvals, fosters tighter supplier consolidation, and promotes the use of other valuable features such as Progressive Discounts.


Adding Guided Buying to Essentials/Basics gives growing organizations the opportunity to use sophisticated tools to guide their procurement, as they establish the guardrails that will help them to scale over time.


Aside from the U.S., Guided Buying is also available to Essentials/Basics customers in Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, and Japan.
