UPST continues to work with your campus representatives to optimize your purchasing experience in BuyWays. The latest initiative we have concluded with your representatives will be deployed as BuyWays Release 1.0, which will be a major change to how we buy things going forward.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN BUYWAYS RELEASE 1.0?
- New BuyWays Shopping/Homepage
- Guided buying approach to catalogs
- Guided buying forms for non-catalog purchases
- Standardized exception to competitive procurement (NBJ) process and form
- Automated change order process (terminates use of the 0.99 form)
WHAT IS THE BENEFIT TO ME?
This release is targeted at enhancing the purchasing experience for users by streamlining and automating major processes while making it more intuitive for new and experienced users.
It curates and provides links to your major activities thereby reducing the number of clicks you need to perform an activity! You just need to attend our information session to see this!
HOW DO I ATTEND THE INFORMATION SESSION?
The UPST will be holding multiple sessions in the upcoming weeks to showcase the benefits of this new release.
