Joining to the existing company
If the company already exists in the system, a user who is its employee may link to the company. There are the following linking methods:
- When adding a new company, the system indicates that such a company is already in the system based on the data in the form. The system also asks whether the user wants to link to it. If the user confirms, a notice will be sent to the administrator of the company with a request to accept the link.
- In the event that the user receives an invitation from the company administrator, the user will be associated with it after its acceptance.
- Use the “Link yourself to the company” action available from the company profile. The link must also be approved by the company administrator.
Each registered company must be validated by the Inventorum team. The user who registers a company becomes its administrator. The user and his/her administrator role must also be validated. The System will notify the user of the validation result.
