What do you need to use the Service?
Master Data - about your business process and the people using it
|This is base list of product SKU's that are being ordered. The list is expected to contain MRP, UOM and category for each SKU
|A list of categories for the SKUs. This is mainly used for quicker access in mobiles and for server side reports.
|A list of outlet names, address, city, outlet code etc.
|A list of Beats (routes) and the outlets under those beats.
|A mapping between the Sales executives and the Beat names.
|A list of roles and "reporting to" structure reflecting the org structure (example: Sales Executive, ASM, ZSM etc).
|A list of Distributors/Dealers and the Beats they are assigned.
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.
