TeamDesign® PSN (Private Supply Network)

The TeamDesign® PSN (Private Supply Network) opens a new world of interactive possibilities! Connect to trading partners via the Internet and use PSN to transmit purchase orders and receive acknowledgements from vendors.

How Electronic Order Processing Works

  1. Build a purchase order in TeamDesign. The software generates the purchase order in the manufacturer's format and transmits it to the PSN.
  2. The PSN routes the purchase order to the appropriate manufacturer.
  3. The manufacturer sends an electronic acknowledgment back through the PSN.
  4. Receive the acknowledgment in TeamDesign. The purchase order information is automatically updated with the acknowledgment number(s) and ship date(s).

To set up a new PSN account, follow these steps:

Meet the requirements for general PSN services

PSN requires Windows. In addition, load the latest released TeamDesign software and due to the ever-evolving nature of the PSN software, we require the latest released version for new installations.
