August 4, 2009 – “SpendMap, a leading supplier of cost effective software solutions for companies that need to streamline their procurement processes and better control their spending, has introduced to market its newest AJAX e-procurement system”, said Darin Portnoff, VP Sales and Marketing of SpendMap.
Using the latest AJAX technology, the new system offers a “rich” web interface to improve the user experience and help SpendMap customers get their work done faster. Unlike older web applications that force a reload of the entire page from the server for every operation, with SpendMap’s Rich Web Interface, individual fields are sent to and from the server as users type, so gone are the days of waiting for entire pages to refresh in the browser just to update one piece of information on the screen.
“Like all Purchasing and A/P Professionals, our clients are under constant pressure to get more done in less time”, says Mr. Portnoff. “They look to SpendMap to provide new tools to make their jobs faster and easier, and the new AJAX system does just that. We help our clients automate and improve the entire req-to-check (purchase-to-pay) cycle, and now we do it with a user experience that no one else in the SMB e-procurement space can match.”
The new system also proactively checks end-users’ work against their business rules and eliminates errors as they type. So if a mistake is made, they’ll know about it right away, not just at the end when they finish the entire page. Real-time field-level validation eliminates guesswork and errors and helps SpendMap customers get their work done faster.
The new AJAX Rich Web Interface is shipping as part of the Summer 2009 Release, which includes over 30 new features that were added based on input from SpendMap’s active user community. Popular new features include scheduled reports delivered automatically via e-mail, the ability to export data directly to Excel, and advanced Change Order approval routing, to name a few.
