Supplier Connect: Order Direct from Reece Group

AroFlo has made it easier for users with Reece, Metalflex and Actrol accounts to order directly from these suppliers using AroFlo’s Supplier Connect feature.

This is a huge time saver and places your order at the very top of the queue as there is no data entry for the supplier to do.

Join our webinar on Wednesday the 20th of November at 11.00AM AEST and we’ll show you how to:

  • Configure your supplier card to and connect directly to Reece online
  • Set up Max catalogue access
  • Create and submit a purchase order online through the AroFlo Office or Field interface
  • Set notification options to receive real time updates on your order.

Field Interface: Brand New Look

You may have noticed the recent updates to AroFlo’s Field interface. Phase one involved improvements to the navigation bar, making it easier to operate as it’s now consistent with AroFlo’s Office interface.

AroFlo Field will offer you the chance to try out the new look. We’d love for you to try it and let us know what you think. If you prefer to switch back to the old look, you can easily do that by tapping your profile and choosing ‘Switch back’.

Coming shortly will be phase two: changes to the way tasks are displayed.
Here is a sneak peek:

Office: Payment Method Customisation

AroFlo now offers payment method customisation, giving you greater control of the methods of payment your business accepts and whether or not surcharges will apply. These new options are only available to credit card payment types.

This is handy if you want to:

  • Allow certain payment methods to be internal only and certain ones to be available for customer use through the Pay Now link
  • Allow clients to select the payment method they are using (e.g. Visa and Mastercard) and if you need to apply a specific surcharge to that payment method
  • Use certain payment gateways for certain card types, if using multiple payment gateways.

You need to be using permission groups to access this feature.

Office: Changing Task Type Checklist Updates

We recently introduced that when changing task types on existing tasks, you would have the option to delete any empty custom fields left over from the original task type. This functionality has now been extended to checklists.

If you change the task type on an existing task, you will see the option to delete any empty checklist items left over from the original task type.

Layouts: Customised File Names

AroFlo now lets you go one step further and customise your filename. This is available for all customised types of layouts, e.g. Invoices, Quotes, Jobsheets.

This is beneficial if you plan on sending the same layout to multiple clients, as you have the opportunity to make the file name unique for each client.

New Training Centre

Introducing AroFlo’s new Training Centre, which is ideal for new users who want to learn at their own pace using one of the many learning styles.

The Training Centre will allow you to watch videos or webinars, complete interactive tutorials, or read written instructions at any time on any device. An additional quiz will test your knowledge at the end of each module.

AroFlo: 2019 Innovation and Technology Award

Team AroFlo were honoured to be announced as the winners of the 2019 Maroondah Business Excellence Award in the Innovation and Technology category.

We are humbled to be recognised for our vision, dedication and innovative response to our customer-driven demands.
