RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., Nov. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- JAGGAER, the world’s largest independent spend management company, is releasing Puma 18.3, designed specifically for the business shopping user who demands fast, real-time access to goods and services, through a guided buying experience. Puma is tuned to the needs of the business buyer to expedite the search and purchase from any buying channel, through preferred or non-pre-designated suppliers. 18.3 features will be live on November 11, 2018.
JAGGAER developed these functions to provide users, in a host of vertical channels, the ability to source everything from simple notepads to more sophisticated restricted chemicals, quickly and with minimal input. This solution relies on progressive disclosure during the checkout phase of the process, with the power user functions in the background to provide an uncluttered experience for regular shoppers, who constitute the majority of users. This reduces training and support and gets users into the system faster. Additional features and functions for data warehousing and visualization, in JAGGAER’s Advanced Sourcing Optimizer, are also being released in 18.3.
“80% of users want to get in and out fast, and back to their day jobs. They want a solution that doesn’t tie them up with repetitive search exercises, is intelligent, and delivers results in real-time. Puma sports new features like progressive disclosure checkout and guided buying, accessible through a new user interface, and powers the capability of LivePrice Plus™, released in 18.2. Users will be able to source from a local catalogue, punch-out or Group Purchasing Organization, with results returned in a single view. Our objective was to present the B2B user with an experience that rivalled the best-of-breed consumer shopping experiences,” says Zia Zahiri, CTO of JAGGAER.
Puma Release 18.3 includes:
*Advanced Sourcing Optimizer updates in 18.3: Data Warehouse and Visualization module
*In-event reporting will be available to ASO customers by default, while users can contact their Account Managers to enable the cross-event data exploration tool.6
