Buyers Edge Platform Monthly Contract Updates

MARCH 2021

 

IMPORTANT: DEVIATION PROCESS CHANGE

The source of deviated pricing being sent via email is changing.  This change supports our goal to streamline our processes, and better represent the contents of these correspondences.  To that extent, our hope is that this will also provide value in clarity to you, the recipient.  We want to ensure that you are given advance notice of this change to eliminate any unintended friction that could occur.

So, please take notice that:

  • Beginning with the first scheduled release of April pricing contracts on MARCH 13th, all deviation loads being sent by the Buyers Edge Platform team from email address audits@buyersedgepurchasing.com will cease.
  • These requests will instead be sent from deviations@buyersedgeplatform.com
  • There will be no changes at this time to the contents or attachments.

To prepare for this switch, we ask that you and/or your email administrator please:

  1. Allow the same access that is currently being extended to email address audits@buyersedgepurchasing.com to also apply to deviations@buyersdgeplatform.com moving forward.
  2. Review and update any mail rules associated with these to ensure they are delivered to the correct individuals utilizing the information provided within.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to make them known.  Feedback can be sent to our new inbox, deviations@buyersedgeplatform.com.
