LinkGreen Connect Tutorial
Visit www.linkgreen.ca to log in to your LinkGreen Connect account. Once you have logged in, you will see your dashboard. The dashboard provides you with supplier recommendations based on your purchasing and geographical location helping you to improve your ordering process. To connect with suppliers click the invite button which then sends a note to that supplier, once they have accepted your invitation they will assign you your specific pricing. You will receive an email from them indicating that you now have access to their catalogue and your pricing. If you are looking for a supplier that isn’t on your dashboard, all you need to do is search for them by name on the Find New Suppliers list which contains all suppliers on LinkGreen Connect's network. Not all suppliers have joined LinkGreen Connect yet so if you can’t find a supplier invite them to join the network using the Add a New supplier option and quick form.
Your profile represents your company on the LinkGreen Connect Marketplace, suppliers base pricing and networking decisions on what value you present to them. So you want you to look your best. To put your best foot forward you need to communicate what you are in the market for as a buyer on your profile. This will help you get the most out of your LinkGreen Connect Account. When suppliers search for you, every search is filtered by matching what you buy, with what they sell. Completing this ensures you only interact with suppliers that matter to you.
Placing an Order
To place an order for the first time select the LinkGreen sample company as this is a fake supplier all buyers on the network are connected to for practice, then select the catalog view you prefer to work from. From the sample catalogue you can search and select the products you would like add to your practice order. The product details will provide you the breakdown of what your custom pricing will look like from each one of your suppliers. Once you have complete your order you can personalize each of your orders using the provided information sheet, then save and submit to your supplier. Using the same LinkGreen sample company you can train your staff, everyone can place an order before it is real. Once the order has been submitted to the supplier an email confirmation will be sent to you confirming the supplier has received your order. Your order confirmation will be followed by progress notifications allowing you to track of the status of your order.
On LinkGreen you can train and add your team members under your business’s LinkGreen Connect account. You can add each team member to the account individually allowing you to control each member’s permissions on LinkGreen Connect. The permission options allows you to set permissions so they can or cannot place orders, including limiting permissions so they can only order from the favorites section that you have setup for each supplier. Notification of orders and shipping can be set for each team member, this means your office staff can get copies of all order placed without your floor staff having to remember to include them.
