The Network component is very important in Floriday. This is the part where you can connect with growers you want to do business with. To be able to see growers' prices in Floriday, the grower has to assign a buyer to a price group. You can follow growers via Network. After making a connection, you will be assigned to a price group. Only after you have been assigned to a price group will you see the available prices.
This is important for direct purchasing, among other things. This function enables you to purchase directly on the supply of connected growers. In addition, an order is more likely to be matched in the purchasing dashboard when suitable supply is found.
Using Floriday, growers can quickly invite buyers to visit their online shop. As soon as you, as a buyer, respond to this, you will enter the grower's range and you can send a connection request to the grower. Once the grower has accepted the connection request, the grower enters your network and you can do business easily from that moment on.
On this page, we discuss the following items:
Managing the network
Go to the menu on the left and click on Match & connect.
You will then arrive at the following screen. In this environment you will see your connections. If you have several connections and want to search quickly, you can use the search bar to type in the name of the grower.
You can see whether the growers have activated their “Shop” in Floriday. If the shop icon is coloured, it means that the grower has activated his shop containing his supply. You can buy directly from this grower. If the icon is grey, the grower has not yet activated his shop. The purple tick behind the name indicates whether the grower is ready for 100% Digital.
Would you like to make a new connection? Go to All suppliers. In the search bar, type the name of the grower you want to buy products from. Then click on Make connection. The invitation is sent to the grower, who receives a notification. Once he has accepted the connection and assigned you to a price group, you can start buying.
You can also use the filter function to show all growers who are part of a certain suplliers collective.
Transferring network management from FloraXchange to Floriday
If you still manage the Network in FloraXchange, you cannot perform the above actions in Floriday.
It is possible to transfer the Network to Floriday, but this will have consequences if you are currently still actively working with term supply in FloraXchange or if you have a VMP link with FloraXchange. When you add growers in Floriday to your network, these connections are not forwarded to FloraXchange. This means that you cannot receive the term and/or VMP supply from this grower.
If you do not use the term and/or VMP supply, we can transfer the management to Floriday without any problems. The transfer request can be emailed to email@example.com.
Visit a grower's company page
When you click a grower, you are forwarded to the grower's company page. Here, you’ll find general company information, such as GLN number, address, phone number, website and social media channels. In addition, you can see the various information on delivery orders and additional services. When a grower is a member of a grower's association, this is now shown on the grower's company page.
You can also view the grower's catalogue from this screen. In this screen, you can easily set favourites for this grower, for example. If the grower can also select trade items as favourites, make sure that the check mark is on (please note, this must first be enabled in the organisation settings).
