Purchasing some services can be frightening. You are buying something that is intangible so, unlike buying products, you don’t have complete certainty over what you are going to get in return for your money.

Procurement training, as a service, is no exception. However, Next Level Purchasing has added a new feature to our Web site to make the quality of our training more transparent.

We have just instituted a five-star rating system for each of our full-length, English-language online classes. When completing a class, students have the option to submit a rating of one to five stars and add a comment.

What’s best is that you get to see every rating and comment submitted! If you go to our “Sign Up” page – http://www.NextLevelPurchasing.com/registration.php – and scroll down to the list of courses, you will see the star ratings for each applicable course. Clicking on the stars will allow you to see each rating and comment submitted.

Transparency is important. Smart buyers need to understand the quality of a service before they buy it. And now, you can leverage the experiences of other purchasing professionals when deciding whether or not to sign up for Next Level Purchasing’s training or which class to enroll in.

This rating system will be expanded to other areas of our site in the near future.

While we’re excited about this announcement, it pales in significance to the announcement we are going to make on July 1, 2009. The July 1, 2009 announcement will rock the purchasing certification world!

Stay tuned!
