Quick guide: Use our client portal to track your projects and raise tickets

Build It BetterFebruary 7, 2019

Enable is pleased to announce that its new client portal is now up and running!

We established our Client Services team in May 2017 to provide our clients with a reliable resource to assist with both ongoing support and the delivery of bespoke project work. As our number of clients 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. That’s why we are providing all our clients with access to an online client portal.

A client portal is a secure digital gateway that allows organizations to interact with their clients, share files, discuss, plan, organize and manage tasks in a private online environment. Client portals have become increasingly popular in recent years due to the higher levels of security that they offer when transferring data between users, along with the ability to upload and manage much larger file sizes than those imposed on email.

One of the main benefits of having access to a client portal is its 24/7 availability. Our clients will be able to access information when they need it, from any device. They won’t have to wait until the morning to contact the Client Services team in order to log an issue or get an update on a current ticket.

The Enable Christmas Party: creating fond memories

Build It BetterJanuary 24, 2019

On Saturday 8th December 2018, Enable employees and their partners celebrated another year of success and innovation at the RSC’s The Other Place for our annual Christmas Party!

Christmas 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 chance to give our exceptionally loyal and motivated employees recognition for the hard work that they are doing and rewarding them for it. Retention is something that Enable prides itself on as we expect to grow to over 100 employees by 2020.

Rebate accounting — Three ways to improve efficiency

The Deal EconomyJanuary 16, 2019

It's a complex task managing multiple vendor rebate deals across multiple vendors, multiple product lines, and in some cases multiple units of measure. 2 for 1, multi-pack discounts, retrospective discounts, limited lifetime promotions, not to mention awards points and prizes make rebate accounting a very complex job. By way of illustration, we have worked on one rebate example where there were 300 deals written into 1 vendor contract. Without the right tools and information rebate accountant...Continue reading

Employee Q&A — Chris

Build It BetterDecember 28, 2018

Over the past 18 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 2019 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 are particularly focused on recruiting on high achievers in numerate subjects, with 66% of our employees holding an undergraduate degree in either Maths or Science, and 41% attaining a master’s 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.

Chris graduated from the University of Gloucestershire with a degree in Popular Music before joining Enable as a Client Services Manager. A Client Services Manager focuses on the delivery of software projects to Enable’s clients and works to support both test and live applications. Rather than passing this responsibility to third-parties, Enable provides software support in-house. This leaves our clients safe in the knowledge that requests will be resolved efficiently and promptly. Chris offers his thoughts on his experience so far as a Client Services Manager at Enable.

Whilst they can assist you and your trading partners in winning business over your competitors and allow you to enter new markets, the accompanying complications of managing SPAs can leave you wondering if they’re really worth it. Some businesses we have engaged with wish to cease dealing with special pricing agreements due to the burden of managing them! There is no doubt that special pricing agreements...Continue reading

Supplier collaboration in the building materials industry

The Deal EconomyDecember 12, 2018

We learn about collaboration from an early age. As children we quickly learn that we need to collaborate with teachers, classmates and team players in order to be successful. "There's no 'i' in 'team' is a common mantra in sports and work teams. And "supply chain collaboration" has been a hot topic for decades. Despite that, there are very few systems that enable wholesale distribution companies and their suppliers in the building materials industry to truly collaborate on their trade agreement...Continue reading
