Our Vendor Manager tool gives your company the ability to store contacts, record service areas and keep up to date with vendor compliance in the one app. In Unity, we define vendors as businesses that you connect with as part of the supply chain in order to progress projects.
Vendor Manager Home Page
Logging in for the first time, you will see a snapshot of your current list of vendors. Your most recently added vendors will be placed on top, but you can use the toolbar on the left hand side of the page to search by category, name, status or compliance.
Creating A Vendor
Use the button on the left hand side of your page to get started.
You must fill all required fields in the "Vendor Details" section before going on to create contacts, upload attachments or add locations. You must also ensure you've uploaded a company logo for your vendor.
When you've filled all required fields and uploaded the vendor logo, use the "Create" button in the top right hand corner of the page to create and save your work.
Adding a Team to your Vendors
Teams should be created via Admin Portal first, so if you haven't done this yet, please head over to our Teams article here. You should be creating a Team that has only users onboarded for this vendor.
Creating Contacts and Locations
Creating contacts and locations will be made available once you've completed the initial set up of your vendor.
Once you create a new contact, it will appear in the list available. If you don't see the contact created, try refreshing your page.
You can also assign each contact to a location if there are multiple branches or locations serviced by your vendor.
Make sure that you enter in an address with a post code when adding a location, as this will help identifying the best vendors per project.
