Webflow Online Authorisation Solution


WebFlow is an online solution with authorisation which allows you to retain control of your budget across departments or sites when procuring educational resources.

The set up of WebFlow couldn't be easier. There is no system integration required; just a simple set of questions about who you want to have authorisation and who the users (shoppers) will be across the platform is all that's needed so we can set up your account structure for you and you can start shopping.

What is WebFlow?

Once your account is set up you simply login on the LDA website and create an order as usual. The shopper/buyer then submits their order request as normal (following the usual checkout steps) but this will then go to an “order held” stage, which will alert the named authoriser (chosen by you) via email to review the purchase. Approval can be done directly from a link in the email or if you want to amend the order you can login your account on the LDA website to adjust and approve.

The WebFlow solution is flexible to suit your needs, so if you wanted every order to be authorised, we can do that, or if you are happy for users to have a maximum spend limit per order before authorisation kicks in, or even by day or week, we can do that for you too.

Communication is managed throughout the process via email, and our in-built messaging system, meaning that if you need to communicate with a buyer or authoriser you can do so within the same system, ensuring that you have a transparent, full audit trail from request to authorisation.
