Features specifically developed to provide a personalized experience for business buyers include:
- Role-based buying rules by type, responsibiity, or departmetn for example, allows for hierarchical user configuration so that different users across the organization have personalized purchasing expereince, based upon their individual roles.
- Configurable pricing rules by customer, tier group, role, department or other segmentation enables flexible discounting options for subscriptions, quantity, contract and wholesale pricing.
- Tiered content, products, categories, shipping and payment options permit each customer to view content specific to them.
