Companies partner to streamline purchasing, eCommerce, accounts payable and supplier diversity processes, centralizing buyer and supplier interactions in one location.
MASON, Ohio, May 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — The purchasing process is often disjointed for corporate buyers. For small and minority-owned businesses, it can be equally as challenging to keep up with sourcing, RFQ bids, contracting and accounting procedures. ConnXus and BuyerQuest today announced their joint partnership to resolve this procurement disparity.
Via an API, the BuyerQuest MarketPlace, eProcurement and Procure-to-Pay solutions will integrate with ConnXus’ supplier diversity and supplier management software. The news surfaced three days before both companies will exhibit at the 2017 Institute for Supply Management (ISM) International Conference in Orlando, FL.

Among them were improved technology use and improved supplier collaboration,” explains Eric Lynch, BuyerQuest vice president of alliances. “The combination of Cognitive Buying™ from BuyerQuest with supplier management from ConnXus directly impacts the CPO’s ability to execute on these strategies with tangible results.”
