Real-Time Online Ordering - It’s Coming!
The Compliance Team is looking forward to helping your order process by bringing you Agency Express 3.0. This is the new real-time online ordering system that will increase the efficiency of placing orders and help you receive the products you would like for your programs.
We begin with 10 pilot agencies starting the second week in October and will slowly add more agencies as we work out kinks and smooth the processes on our end. With the help of Feeding America and AidMatrix we’re looking forward to having everyone use AE3 as soon as possible!
See your Compliance staff for more information.
