REMINDER: ONE LOCATION. ONE ACCOUNT.

Did you know that retail locations that sell both Wing Nuts (licensed) and Gizmos (non-licensed) products, should be listed as only one account? This is because ABC Company accounts are either licensed or not licensed. They cannot be both. Also, even if an account contains multiple invoices with different terms (cash or credit), you should not report a duplicate account to accommodate this situation.

This ABC Company policy helps to ensure your reports are accurate and complete. If you have any questions, please contact your Data Quality Support Team member at any time.

ABC COMPANY 123 VIDEO HELP NOW AVAILABLE

We have posted several types of videos — reports, policies and concurrency elimination — on ABCNET AAP to help you better understand ABC Company’s payment-on-promotion process. 

Report Videos
Short, detailed videos walk you through how to generate and use each report. The goals of the videos are to:

  • help you with the process of reporting your promotions,
  • explain the price promotion policy, and
  • clarify the reimbursement calculation methodology.

For a complete list of reports, go to the ABCNET.com Documentation page and reference the ABC Company 123 Overview of Reports document in the User Procedures > ABC Company 123  One Two Three (123) folder. To view a specific video, simply click the name of the report. Please note that this document is also available within the ABC Company 123 application under the Request Reports menu. 

Policy Videos
Policy videos are available within the ABC Company 123 application. We recommend that your Equity Agreement Manager and anyone in your organization who uses ABC Company 123 watch these videos. To access these short videos, click the 123 Policy Video menu on the ABC Company 123 Welcome page.  

If you do not wish to watch the video but still would like to see the information, go to the ABC Company Documentation page and reference the User Procedures > ABC Company One Two Three (123) > Policy Reimbursement Examples folder.  

Concurrency Elimination Video
If you want to see an explanation of why concurrencies were eliminated, go to the ABC Company Documentation page, navigate to the User Procedures > ABC Company One Two Three (123) folder and click the ABC Company 123 Concurrency Elimination Explanation video.

We hope you find these videos helpful. If you have any questions, please send an e-mail to communications@abc-company.com
