This article will guide you through requesting a new vendor for Brandwise and then connecting to them within your Brandwise Passport. Once connected through Passport, you’ll receive any product files the vendor uploads through Transit.
If you have a Reach 2.0 site, products uploaded through Transit will also auto-populate your site.
To begin, go to e.brandwise.com and log in with your “100” admin credentials, or SFA100/MyBrandwise credentials depending on how you refer to them. These are the same credentials used when assigning licenses to users and placing their devices in road or show mode.
Click the Request Forms menu and select New Vendor. Enter your name and email address, Required fields are Corporation Name, Contact Name, City, State, Zip, and Email Address. The corporation name should be the “umbrella” name for this vendor. In a lot of cases this is the same as the brand name but not always. A vendor with multiple brands often has an umbrella name for their company with multiple brands that they distribute. In those instances, the actual brand name should be entered into the Corporation Name field. And then the actual distribution address, phone, email contact, and website. This will ensure we link your agency to the correct account.
Select Yes next to Supplier exist in database if you know they’re already working with other agencies in Brandwise or have their own Brandwise Play system. If you’re not sure, just select No. Then, click Submit Request. Requests made after 5 pm MT will be processed the following business day.
IMPORTANT: Once you’ve received a confirmation email that the vendor has been added to your system, bring the vendor into your Play system. You’ll do this as you always have in the past by hopping on your 100 server and clicking the Setup menu then Suppliers and then Suppliers again. Then, click the Add/Update Information From Brandwise.
Next, log in to your Brandwise Passport. Switch to the Agency Passport by clicking the top right navigation menu.
You should now see the vendor connection. If the vendor does not display that means you’re either not connected or they do not yet have a Brandwise Passport, but you can invite them! Click the orange Add Business Connection button and select the vendor from the Supplier Name drop-down. Enter the contact email you have on file for that Supplier and click Invite. Once they have accepted your connection request, you’ll receive a confirmation email.
