A company store is all about giving you control… of your brand, of your marketing collateral, of your inventory and of your budget. Perhaps even more important, however, is the ability for you to manage who uses your store and how they can use it. The ROBYN Company Store Solution gives you options to customize how you manage your users.
Simple and Effective
Sometimes, simplicity meets the required goals. For MidFirst Bank, the administrator simply enters the person’s name and assigns them to a purchasing group. Since every employee uses the same naming format for individual’s email addresses, the company store automatically fills in this detail and emails the log-in information to the user.
Spending Accounts and Types of Users
Often times, companies require a little more control for each user. For instance, on the GTE Financial company store, the administrator also has the authority to adjust a user’s spending account. This is a critical feature for GTE as they require each employee to wear branded apparel and give employees a budget each year to purchase these items. The administrator also has the ability to assign each user to specific groups for internal accounting purposes.
Some companies need a custom interface to match their corporate identity. Express Employment Professionals, for example, has over 600 franchises across North America. With so many independent operations going, it’s imperative that Express maintains strict branding guidelines… and their company store helps.
When a franchisee wants to add a new user, the administrator from that location simply fills out a form on the store. A custom information field is used for the franchise number which identifies specific programs used by this franchise. The store will only accept an “@expresspros.com” email address for the new user, so once the account is set-up, the log-in information is emailed to the new user.
Single Sign On (SSO)
By working with the IT department, a ROBYN Company Store can become an extension of your company’s intranet. When a user logs in to the company portal, they are automatically connected to the company store.
One of the biggest advantages of this type of access is that you have complete control over who sees your company store at all times. If a user is deactivated from the company portal, their access to the company store is deactivated as well. And, there is no public-facing store for anyone to stumble across. The only way to enter the store is through the company portal. This is the epitome of control over your users!
