F Drive enhancements

F:Drive enhancements for May 2018

We’re always looking at ways to add value to the service we provide our customers. With that in mind, we’re pleased to announce that we’ve made some enhancements and additions on the F:Drive, all with the aim of making your lives easier.


The purchase order upload function on the F:Drive makes placing large orders a breeze – and now we’ve made it even easier for you to use.

Enhanced Purchase Order Uploads

You can now upload purchase orders for an unlimited number of lines, to make bulk and repeat orders even simpler. We’ve improved the processing speed, so it’s quicker than ever to upload files, and you can follow progress of the upload as it happens. Any errors or out of stock items are highlighted, so you have complete transparency of your order straight away.

Simply select your business name in the top navigation bar and select ‘Upload Purchase Order’ to get started, or access via the ‘Order Options’ menu on the Components homepage.


Selected ranges in our Maintenance & Accessories catalogue now benefit from a helpful star rating system, so you can see feedback from other users on a range of product features. Ranges currently include wiper blades, engine oils, air fresheners, spray paints, fuel additives and disposable gloves.

The ratings displayed will help to inform your buying decisions, and feedback will also provide valuable input into development of our product ranges.

For more information on specific product features, simply scroll down the product page to the Product Rating section (see below), where you can see ratings based on carefully selected criteria for each product.

F:Drive product ratings

It’s easy to leave your own rating; share your experiences or pass on feedback from your customers by clicking the empty stars to rate, and make sure you add a comment giving the reasons for your selection.

Once a product has received a rating from a user, the overall star rating will appear on the search results page, and at the top of the product page (as shown below) for easy reference.

Product with rating

Only the star ratings submitted will appear on the F:Drive, but comments will be collated and reviewed by product marketing teams, to help inform the development of our ranges, to ensure we have the right products on offer to suit you.

Please contact our Customer Service team via the Feedback link on the F:Drive  if you have any questions about either of the above features.
