A focus on tight financial controls especially in such tough economic times is also fundamental. Futures Supplies, as part of its sustainable paperless 24/7 web based ordering, now offer a web based budget control system to all its customers at www.futures-supplies.co.uk
Favoured by cleaning companies, implementation is a simple 3 step process agree ‘Materials’ and ‘Rechargeable’ list, upload budgets for each individual site from a spreadsheet they provide with the data and finally set up unique user name and password for each manager relative to the sites they manage or the person nominated to place orders and for ‘customer administrator’.
Providing a clear definition between orders for materials and rechargeables the system ensures the cleaning company never forgets to invoice their client for the rechargeable. The customer administrator can download and monitor monthly spend summary reports, products ordered by site and allow/disallow over budget orders by accepting or rejecting by the click of a button. A copy of the order is generated as confirmation to both the person who places the order and customer administrator.
