3.    Web Key Number - As supplied by Honda

4.    Username and Password to the Honda API - this is how the dealership logs into the Honda site.
For the Part Inventory Upload and Service Data Upload, instead of the Dealership manually uploading it to the Honda site, Blackpurl will automatically upload the relevant data on your behalf but we need a Username and Password to be able to do this.


5.   Frequency of Upload of Part Inventory and Service Data
How often the uploads are to automatically upload to the Honda API



HOW DOES IT WORK

  • Part Inventory Upload
Blackpurl will automatically upload all Honda Part Records which are currently in stock to the Honda API at scheduled times.  
  • Service Data Upload 
Blackpurl will automatically upload service data information on service jobs on Honda Units that have been invoiced.  The upload will be set to run at scheduled times etc.
  • Submit Vendor Order
Dealerships will be able to submit a Vendor Order direct to Honda from Blackpurl for Daily orders and Stock Orders

For Campaign orders the Dealership will still need to be manually enter the items onto Honda website in their Campaign ordering section.  This is because Honda does not provide the option of automatically uploading / importing Campaign orders

What is the Process:

Dealerships will create a Vendor Order for Honda as per the normal process but when the user clicks on SUBMIT ORDER, they will get the option of Send Order to Honda?

  • Download Invoice Data 
The Dealership will be able to download the Invoice data directly into a Vendor Receiving.

The Dealership will process ORDER > PARTS RECEIVING for relevant Honda Vendor.

This will trigger the Honda API to provide the Dealership with a list of Invoices available for download.

If there are no available invoices then you will get the message "No Invoices available from Honda" and will be able to continue with the normal processing of a vendor receiving.

If there are Invoices available, the user will get the option of Select an Invoice from the drop down.

The drop down will populate will all the Invoices available for download and the user is to select which Invoice they wish to download into their Vendor Receiving.

Once the user has selected one of the Invoices from the list, a Download Invoice action will begin and all line items of the Invoice will download into the Vendor Receiving.

The user can then finalise the Vendor Receiving as per the normal process.
