NMG One recently brought to your attention that we are in the process of converting our merchandising and planning systems to one common system across all of our brands and channels.  Below is a list of commonly asked questions.

1.  What’s changing?

Beginning in August of 2016, we will be using both Supplier and Supplier Site reference numbers to identify our Suppliers, rather than the existing NMG issued DUNS number. Additionally, we have established a new merchandise hierarchy across all of our brands and channels, so the departments, store numbers, and DC location Codes will be changing as well.  EDI document mapping will be updated to a new version and testing must be completed to ensure each Supplier is compliant.


2.  What is the difference between the term Vendor and Supplier?

There is no difference.  NMG will now be referring to its Vendors as Suppliers due to internal system qualifications.


3.  What is meant by the term “legacy”?

The term “legacy” is used to refer to all data used in the current systems today.  Once the new systems are in place, much of the “legacy” information will be changing.


4.  What is a PIM SKU and what will it be used for?

The PIM SKU is a new, NMG assigned number that will need to be consumed by your systems. 


5.  What is the Go Live date for the changes to take effect?

The Go-Live date for the new systems is August 2016. If the date changes we will be sure to give you advance notice.


6.  Why is NMG replacing the DUNS number?

In order to consolidate Suppliers within the new Oracle system, NMG developed new reference numbers that will now replace the existing DUNS numbers. These new reference numbers will be seen in purchase orders, invoices, and communications and will be known as the Supplier/Supplier Site numbers.


7.  Will all divisions (NMS, NMD, BG) use the same Supplier/Supplier Site number?

It is possible that the Suppliers may have more than one Supplier Site number but it is more than likely the Supplier will have only one Supplier number.


8.  When will the Suppliers receive their updated reference numbers?

The updated Supplier/Supplier Site numbers are posted on the NMG Operations Portal. Click on the following link below and enter your current NMG DUNS number to find your new Supplier number.  DUNS to Supplier Search

Your new department number(s) can be accessed by reaching out to your usual merchant/buyer contact. 


9.  Why is EDI testing taking place?

As a part of this conversion, we are updating all of our EDI documents (except VendorNet) from 4010 to 5010 and making significant changes to our EDI mapping documents. NMG has partnered with DiCentral to ensure that our supplier community is in compliance with our updated EDI Maps and requirements. Compliance will be determined via a testing certification process. Nothing will change with InterTrade in terms of EDI traffic flow.


10.  Will all Suppliers test with DiCentral for the new EDI maps?

All Suppliers are required to update their maps to the 5010 version. If a Supplier works with a Third Party Provider (TPP), we will test the TPP. If the TPP passes the testing, we may be able to pass all Suppliers that work with the TPP without testing every Supplier.


11. What are the new Store & DC location numbers?

Visit New Store and DC Location Codes to view the new codes that will be used beginning August, 2016.


12. Why do Stores 79 and 90 now share the same new Store #7079, when they were classified as two separate stores previously?

Beginning August 2016, our new system will consider shipments for legacy Stores 079 and 090 as warehouse inventory allocated to Store number 7079. Since Store number 7079 ships to DC number 7079, you will see 7079 as both the Store number and the DC number on your EDI PO. Once your shipment arrives at DC/Store number 7079, the Oracle PO type will internally distinguish whether or not the DC will stock the inventory (legacy Store 079) or route to Express Allocation (legacy Store 090). Express Allocation POs will most likely be written on a separate PO and will use PO type SS. Lockerstock allocated quantities may be written on an order with our regular stores, and will most likely use PO type SA. Suppliers should use the new Store #7079 after our go live date in August.


13.  Who should the Supplier contact with questions regarding the system changes?
