Client Services 1st anniversary: celebrating a year of success and innovation

Build It BetterJune 1, 2018

On Friday 4th May 2018, Enable’s Client Services team headed out for food and drinks in Stratford-upon-Avon to celebrate the department’s 1st year anniversary!

Founded in 2000, by entrepreneurs Denys Shortt OBE and Andrew Butt, Enable builds and supports business software and mobile applications using Microsoft technology, for some of the UK’s largest companies. As Enable continues to expand at a significant rate, a dedicated Client Services team was established in May 2017. The introduction of this team provides our clients with a reliable resource to assist with both support requests and the delivery of projects.

The Client Services team are on hand to provide our clients with an ongoing support service, covering general questions, diagnosing problems, fixing bugs and discussing possible changes to existing software systems. Rather than passing responsibility to third-party providers, the team takes direct ownership in resolving issues. This leaves our clients safe in the knowledge that requests will be resolved efficiently and promptly.

Take control of your rebate debtors

The Deal EconomyMay 23, 2018

In our experience, many businesses that receive rebate revenue from suppliers, don't have the means to be able to check that it is correct. They are completely reliant on suppliers to accurately calculate and make the payments. Because they tend to record rebate agreements outside of their financial system, these businesses are unable to match the cash received against amounts owed from their rebate deals, and for that reason they don’t set up a debtor in the same way that customers are treated...Continue reading

Employee Q&A — Klaudija

Build It BetterMay 11, 2018

Over the past 17 years, Enable has forged strong relationships with some of the finest universities, bringing in the brightest students that they have to offer — with 79% of our analysts and developers graduating from one of the top 25 featured in the Times 2018 UK rankings! We regularly hold recruitment events and have formed close ties to the University of Warwick and the University of Birmingham. This gives us the opportunity to engage and network with students, whist giving them a real insight into our company.

We particularly focus our recruitment on high achievers in numerate subjects, with 66% of our employees holding an undergraduate degree in either Maths or Science, and 41% attaining a Masters or PhD in their chosen field of study. This provides us with exceptional employees who not only possess outstanding technical skills, but also the ability to translate that knowledge into highly effective business solutions.

Recent starter Klaudija graduated from the University of Warwick with a degree in Discrete Mathematics before joining Enable as a graduate software developer. Klaudija has begun her career at Enable with scheduled self-paced learning time to cover our methodology and the broad range of technologies that we support before contributing to project work. Once a graduate is deemed to have sufficient knowledge and experience they are promoted, typically after just one year. Klaudija offers her thoughts on her experience as a graduate software developer at Enable so far.

DealTrack integration — which method will you choose?

The Deal EconomyMay 8, 2018

When people ask us about integration, the answer is simple. DealTrack can accept data from anywhere so long as it is detailed enough. We aren’t tied to any particular ERP systems or EDI providers, and we have over 20 years integration experience. There probably isn’t a system or standard that we haven’t come across already. The bottom line is that if you have line item data on goods received, purchase orders and supplier invoices somewhere in your digital infrastructure, then you are ready to i...Continue reading

A platform for mutually beneficial supplier negotiations

The Deal EconomyApril 24, 2018

This building materials supplier was struggling to reconcile rebate information in their unwieldy spreadsheet-based system. They also had an issue around extracting detailed and summary data across all branches and categories prior to the negotiation. They felt that they needed to gain control over rebate income and at the same time find a solution that would help them to improve their supplier negotiations. With insufficient accurate, consolidated information at their fingertips, the procuremen...Continue reading
