What is a security administrator, and why do I need one?
A security administrator is an employee of your company who has been authorized to administrate access to certain secure sections of the XPO website. Employees of your company (or third parties as appropriate) who want to have visibility to additional locations or access to the accounts payable (A/P) application will be required to have the security administrator’s prior authorization. Unauthorized employees who attempt to access A/P information will see a page that directs them to the security administrator for access.
Why does XPO require a security administrator?
A security administrator helps maintain the security of your valuable business data.
How do I set up a security administrator at my company?
What can a security administrator do?
I don’t want to designate a security administrator. Can I still view A/P information?
No, viewing A/P information requires security administration.
How does the security administration tool work?
Enter the user name (e.g., jsmith) of the person whose location profile you wish to administer, then click Start. A list of locations you can administer displays under your name. Click the plus symbol to show all locations under the main corporate location. Click the minus symbol to show only the main corporate location. If you need to add or remove a location from your administration list, use this process:
Please note: If you add or remove a corporate location, all the service and billing locations associated with that location will also be added or removed.
As the security administrator, you can also give yourself access to A/P information using the same procedures: Enter your user name, select the applicable location, and then enable or disable access.
