National Product Catalogue Online Training Programme
The National Product Catalogue (NPC) Webinar Training Programme has been developed to get our users up-to-speed with the National Product Catalogue.
This training program is for self-driven learning. The Webinars are grouped by Sector as there are significant differences in the NPC data requirements for each of the 3 sectors we provide for. You can attend all webinars within the week for your sector, or just fill in your knowledge gaps by attending the webinar specific to your learning needs. However if you are a new user we would strongly recommend you attend all webinars and run through all training exercises. Our support team is always here to help if you get stuck.
There are 3 key components to this training:
- Webinars: Web based demonstrations with a real person on the other end. This will give you an idea of what to do and how to do it.
- Exercise scripts: Practise makes perfect, especially when you are dealing with business critical master data. These exercises are run on Test accounts. These are safe accounts, so there is no risk of mistake.
- Support Documentation: Videos, tips and tricks, user guides and articles can all be found in the Help Centre. Believe us, you will want to bookmark that page.
The webinars are 30 minutes to 1 hour long and we have 4 training sessions for you to choose from:
Intended Audience: All NPC users (including Middleware)
This webinar is open to all NPC users and focuses on who is GS1, what NPC is and how your product data is loaded into NPC. This training also covers some basic GS1 terms, how to gather your product data and product hierarchies.
Intended Audience: New NPC users and those current users who need a refresher
New to NPC? Need to know how to enter your item and pricing information? Then this Webinar is your first step. Here we will walk you through how to navigate webforms, enter product and pricing data and how to publish it to your intended recipient. Following this introductory webinar exercises will be available so that you can practise what you learnt in our NPC Test Environment.
Intended Audience: Current users
Adding data is only the first step to managing master data. You will also need to know how to maintain your catalogue, change item and pricing data and discontinuing product lines. This webinar is also a great opportunity to ask a NPC specialist any questions you might have after running through the exercise on our NPCTest Environment.
Intended Audience: Experienced NPC Webforms users
Love Excel? You will be pleased to know NPC has built in capability to down load item and pricing data into an Excel spreadsheet so that it can be edited and loaded in a bulk fashion. This webinar will walk through how to add and change products and pricing data.
Disclaimer: We recommend that you have a good grasp of NPC (the Web based tool) before you consider using this function. You will also need Excel knowledge to get the most out of Bulk Uploads.
