What do you need to use the Service?
Master Data - about your business process and the people using it
The above are the base set of master data. There could be more masters required for modules Merchandizing, DAR, Expense Tracking, Targets etc. You can contact your implementation partner for modules suitable for your business.
Access via Email ids for each user
Any user who needs to access the service requires a user id. At present we only support valid Email id's.
Users can register themselves using their personal email-id, however this is NOT advisable.
It is recommended that, as an Enterprise the Admin team creates these Email-ids on behalf of everyone and keep the control with themselves, so that during churn (change in employees), they can simply pass on the Email id to the new person. Else the Admin team would end up re-mapping all the masters to the email-ids of new employees; however be noted that the previous transactions would remain associated with the old employee's user id.
