One of the benefits of an optimized supply chain is greater visibility into all of your technology investments. You need easy access to information in real time and on any device. Streamlined procurement aligns your processes with your people, resulting in fewer duplicated efforts and errors. And the on-demand visibility enables your team to be more productive.

At Insight, we’re focused on delivering continuous incremental and strategic change to help businesses run smarter. That’s why the new features in your insight.com account give you even more visibility into your procurement activities.

End-to-end order visibility & tracking


The ability to track your orders in real time helps you manage your team's expectations better and improves your overall purchasing experience.

We understand that purchasing technology investments often requires coordination among multiple teams within your organization. Providing access within the procurement platform to the right people ensures everyone involved knows what’s going on when they need to. We’ve redesigned the look and feel of your recent orders view, improved search options and added new status bars.

All of your recent order statuses at a glance


Experience enhanced visibility into your recent orders with a fresh new look. You can view key order information such as order number, date, total and account information. The new order status tracker displays color-coded bars, giving you a simple way to visually differentiate the statuses of your recent orders. Expand or collapse each order to view a sample of the products included.

Quicker access to what you need with improved search


Some clients in multisite organizations have access to improved search functionality that enables filtering by key components, including status type, date range, account, product type, operations center, region, customer info and more.

Order details that display your most top-of-mind info


If you need to look deeper into an order, selecting the order number link on the Recent orders page will direct you to the order details. This user-friendly view gives you all of the essential insights about the order in an easy-to-understand hierarchy.

The color-coded progress bar provides a visual indicator of the order’s progress. Leverage on-page actions such as reordering or adding tracking notifications. Simple tabbed navigation makes exploring additional details regarding shipments and customer info simple.
