Have you received an email from a Customer asking you to join TraceGains Network to fulfill document requests? Or perhaps you’re looking for a simpler way to manage and provide documents to your Customers. In just a few steps, your FREE TraceGains Supplier Group will be up and running in no time.
You will need to understand a few things and complete a few tasks. First, you’ll need to create a TraceGains Network Account, then create a Supplier Group, and finally you’ll configure your Supplier Group so you can begin sharing documents with your customers.
Create a TraceGains Network Account
Navigate to TraceGains.net and click Sign up for Free.
Complete the account details page and click submit. Soon after, you’ll receive a confirmation email with a link that will confirm your email address and allow you to log in to TraceGains Network.
Create a Supplier Group
When you log in for the first time, you’ll see a welcome page with a Yes, Create a Supplier Group button. Click that button and complete the Supplier Group Application. This form will ask standard questions and ensure you haven’t previously created a Supplier Group. Submit the application and shortly after, you will receive an email confirming your Supplier Group has been approved. This email will also include instructions on how to complete your Supplier Group.
Configure Your Supplier Group
In order to begin satisfying your customers’ document requests, you’ll need to do four things:
Adding Manufacturing or Plant Locations
The collection of manufacturing or plant locations makes up your “Supplier Group.” Once you create all your locations, let TraceGains know which items are provided from these locations.
Connect with Your Customers
After you’ve created your locations, you’ll begin connecting with Customers. Through TraceGains Network, accept connection requests with your Customers in order to begin sharing documents. This ensures you are only sending documents to those you have determined should receive them.
