SUPPLIER DATA INTEGRITY PROGRAM A Solution for Accurate and Up-To-Date Supplier Contact Information. CHALLENGES. Internal Limited Resources Interdepartmental Silos. Suppliers Information Data Gaps Minimal Feedback Churn and Turn. SOLUTION. Internal Communication
RVCF will work with you to craft your internal communication.
We have developed a Webinar in coordination with the Retail Value Chain Federation (RVCF) with the goal of providing our vendors an opportunity to learn and understand specific details regarding ReTail’s Compliance standards. In order to offer this out to our vendor community, we need to ensure that we have correct (and current) contact information. Getting this message to the right people is critical to the success of this program.
Our goal is to get this contact information updated over the upcoming weeks.
Programs will be scheduled in the coming months and your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
Here’s how you and your team can help.
We’d like the merchants to send out the attached e mail to their vendors so they can update our records using the link provided. The generic format simply requires you to fill in the people you need to send this to. Once the vendor completes the form the updated information will go to our database – nothing else will be necessary on your end. We assume sending the e mail to the sales rep or usual contact for each vendor may be the easiest way to get this started and they can include or forward to the appropriate people in their organization.
The Buyers will actively participate with the data acquisition by contacting their supplier’s sales representatives.
This is done through an email message. Again, RVCF can assist in crafting the message. I have used a fictitious retailer, ReTail as an example.
As you can see in the next slide, the message asks the sales reps to provide contact information from each of their internal departments. All they have to do is click on the included link to get started.
The sales rep receives the message and can either complete the information request themselves, or forward it on internally, as shown.

Clicking the link brings you to a page similar to the one shown next. Each of the crucial departments are listed to the left with the ability to add an “other”.
Let’s start with Logistics.

Complete the process for each department, being brought back to the original page each time.
When done, complete the information responsible for completing the information and click “Submit to ReTail”.
A “Thank you” message will appear to confirm submission.
