Want greater control of your procurement process? …Rexel WebFlow is your answer!
Last article we discussed how the Rexel WebStore is your one-stop-shop for all your electrical goods need’s, product and account information and how there can be significant benefits afforded to businesses that sign up for access to the Rexel WebStore.
In this article we will explain the added benefits your business can receive if you take advantage of our extended offering – Rexel’s WebFlow solution.
What is WebFlow and what can it do for me?
Rexel’s WebFlow extends our WebStore solution forming control-centric benefits for our WebStore customers. With WebFlow you can manage and monitor staff procurement activities. WebFlow will afford you greater control over your organisations procurement of electrical goods through the implementation of a self-managed approval process.
How is WebFlow Set-Up?
Creating a WebFlow approval process is easy:
- Ask your branch for a ‘Manager Role’ to be established for your WebStore login – If you don’t have a WebStore login yet one will be created for you
- Use the ‘Manage Users’ link (found under the ‘My Account’ tab to easily create ‘Users’ through a simple user friendly set-up. (shown below & to the right)
- All Users created here are shown in the list & can be maintained (Edited / Order Limit adjusted / deleted) from this screen. Using this method the ‘Manager’ of the account can set individual $ purchase limits. (‘Order Budget Limit’ field- shown: below & right image)
When an approval request is required this triggers an email to be sent to the ‘Manager’ of the ‘User’ via email for approval. The ‘Manager’ can then review the order and approve or reject it.
The ‘User’ is notified of the outcome by an email. The ‘Manager’ can also modify each ‘User’ account at any time either changing individual purchase limits for each ‘User’ or deleting their account with one click, a security feature which can lock access & prevent users from placing unwanted online purchases on the account.
Rexel’s WebFlow solution is made freely available to all our customers using a WebStore login that is linked to an active Rexel trading account.
Contact your local Rexel branch and ask for a WebFlow Account or contact Web Services direct at: firstname.lastname@example.org and state your business name and account number.
