Help center: helping our users get the most out of DealTrack

Build It BetterSeptember 14, 2018

Enable is pleased to announce that the Help Center knowledge base is now up and running!

For over a decade, our rebate management software has helped distributors, wholesalers and buying groups manage the income they receive from suppliers and customers by simplifying business-to-business trading, unlocking hidden revenue and maximizing profit in their trading agreements.

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 ongoing support and the delivery of bespoke project work. As the number of DealTrack users continues to expand at a significant rate, the ability for the Client Services team to deliver the right support in real-time could become increasingly challenging. We, at Enable, believe that our clients want more than just someone who solves their existing problems. Rather than being reactive, we make great efforts to be proactive.

But a solution that is disjointed or based on spreadsheets introduces the possibility of missing data, human error and inaccurate reporting....Continue reading

Open source at Enable: cloud hosting abstractions

Build It BetterAugust 24, 2018

At Enable, we benefit from, and contribute to, a number of open source projects. We believe it’s important to give back to the open source community where we can, which we do by contributing to the projects that we use daily. By raising bug reports, fixes and new features, we help make those projects even better. We also publish lots of our own code as open source libraries on GitHub.

We’ve found that participating in open source is a great way to learn. At Enable, our deve­lopers are highly-educated, highly-skilled and are driven to continue to grow their skills. By contributing to open source, our developers can explore how different projects are structured, how they operate and what tools and patterns they are using. All of the technical and leadership skills learned by contributing to open source can be fed back into our own projects, helping us create even more delightful applications for our clients.

In this article, we’ll take a look at a couple of open source libraries we’ve developed at Enable and how they’ve made our switch to hosting applications using Microsoft Azure easier.

Build It BetterAugust 3, 2018

On Saturday 21st July 2018, Enable employees and their partners celebrated another year of success and innovation at Stratford-upon-Avon Boat Club for our second annual Summer Party!

Summer parties have become increasingly popular for companies over the years, with the huge appeal giving employees the opportunity to bond and help people from other departments get to know each other a lot better. These types of get-togethers are also an excellent opportunity to give our exceptionally loyal and motivated employees recognition for the hard work that they are doing and rewarding them for it. Staff retention is something that Enable prides itself on as we expect to grow to over 100 employees by 2020.

Stratford-upon-Avon: a thriving hub brimming with creative history

Build It BetterJuly 13, 2018

Founded in 2000, by entrepreneurs Denys Shortt OBE and Andrew Butt, Enable are the outsourced partner of choice for clients who wish to invest in continuous improvement through iterative development of their software products and business systems.

From our humble beginnings in a stable block, our team has grown to 75 people, half of whom are in technical software development roles. Our ambition is to double in size by 2020.

Our mission is to provide a vibrant and diverse working environment where everything we do, how we do it, and why we do it is rooted in two concepts: freedom and focus. Our employees have the freedom to work creatively, while our team structure and project processes allow them to focus entirely on solving any given challenge.

Why Stratford-upon-Avon?

We have made our home in Stratford-upon-Avon at the heart of Warwickshire, which was recently voted the 10th best place to live in the UK in an Office for National Statistics personal wellbeing survey. Close to the M40, Stratford-upon-Avon offers a direct rail line to Birmingham that runs every hour, making it an ideal location for anyone wishing to regularly commute from the city centre.
