AroFlo features integrated supplier catalogues that allow you to:

Browse and select items from online product catalogues directly within AroFlo.

Import items directly on to a quote, purchase order, supplier quote or invoice.

Use the most accurate material costs, as pricing is live from the supplier.

The online catalogues available from within AroFlo are from Australian-based suppliers only, unless otherwise specified.


Permission Groups

Only staff with the 'Management' permission group will see the supplier catalogue option. To grant supplier catalogue access to other staff, create a custom permission group.

Clients who set up access to the Reece online catalogue will also have access to the other Reece Group companies, Actrol and Metalflex. There is no additional setup required.

Supplier online catalogues (configured in Site Admin) can be accessed directly from a quote, purchase order, supplier quote or invoice.

1. Create a quote, purchase order, supplier quote or invoice (the example below uses a quote).

When creating a purchase order with Reece as the supplier, the 'Location' you choose may not be the location from which your goods are dispatched. To check on the status of an online order with Reece, call their general number, rather than your chosen branch.


2. Click Supplier Catalogues.
