Product Reviews, Cost Centers enhance Compass Business Management: Essent 2014

The most powerful business management system in the promotional products industry now delivers hundreds of automation features and major functional enhancements for stronger marketing and cost control.

Essent upgrades to the Compass Business Management System enhance and automate communication among distributors, suppliers, and corporate customers, as well as Google, Sage, and others — all for stronger performance in the promotional products industry.

Product Reviews allow end customers, including optional restriction to verified buyers, to enter product reviews and ratings. Product reviews provide valuable feedback to merchandisers while significantly increasing search engine optimization (SEO).

Product Reviews are available within the Compass Web Storefront through the Essent SiteBuilder platform, providing a seamless experience for everyone. Product Reviews include special markup, or meta data, specifically included to provide search engines like Google with the information they need to interpret the review and make product ratings available in search engine results.

New Cost Center controls will help land corporate clients. Corporations that increasingly strive to control spend are turning to cost centers, and the Compass Business Management System allows the promotional products industry to implement stronger corporate cost controls than ever before.

Now when an enterprise customer requires expense tracking and budget controls, distributors can implement them with minimal expense and maximum accuracy. Customer Cost Centers can be manually created and imported directly from customer data files and enforced both in the back office and web storefront. Cost Centers include a unique cost code, authorized users, plus optional budget and frequency and can be consolidated onto a single invoice for convenient processing by the customer.

Compass has also added a feature that buyers are used to seeing only from major ecommerce retailers, not in B2B ecommerce. Amazon.com-like product reviews will let Essent users stand out in the promotional products industry.

What's New for the Compass Business Management System:

-Product reviews give B2B ecommerce the B2C feel

-Enhanced cost centers help land corporate customers

-Google teamwork makes right promotional product easier to find

-Industry leading document sharing saves time, reduces errors
