FastTrack allows you to easily upload your product information to SAGE for expedited entry into the SAGE database.  FastTrack is available for all SAGE Advantage Members at no additional cost.


Solution:
 
Complete the following steps:

1. Download the Excel file of your current listings from SAGE Supplier Center.  You will find this in the Supplier Profile and Catalog area, Catalog tab, and then Bulk Update button.  If you do not have SAGE Supplier Center installed see Installing the SAGE Supplier Center.  If you do not have any products listed, you will see a blank template.  In this case, we highly recommend asking our information services team to add a few of your products for you before you attempt to use FastTrack so that you can see how the data is entered into each field.

2. Review Instructions for editing FastTrack Excel product listings regarding how to edit the file.   THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT.  FAILURE TO READ THE INSTRUCTIONS WILL MOST LIKELY RESULT IN AN ERROR THAT WILL CAUSE YOUR UPDATE SUBMISSION TO FAIL.

3. Carefully edit the Excel file making any changes needed to update your information.

4. Upload the modified Excel chart using SAGE Supplier Center along with any image files (see the Instructions for editing FastTrack Excel product listings for image specs).  If you have a traditional printed or PDF catalog, click on "Upload Your PDF catalog" to submit a PDF of your catalog after submitting your FastTrack Update.

5. During the submission process, the system will do some automatic verification of the data.  If immediate problems are identified, you will be notified on screen so you may correct the issues and re-upload.

6. Once the submission is accepted SAGE staff will review your submission.

7. If there is an issue, SAGE will contact you via email with details.  You may either resubmit it for FastTrack entry once the issue is fixed or submit your information for regular processing. See How to add your products to the SAGE research tools

Once your submission is processed by SAGE (please allow up to one business day), your updates will be live in all of our research tools in real-time.  If you need to make real-time edits to your information, please use the SAGE Supplier Center or the Supplier Integration Toolkit, both of which provide real-time editing of your data.

If you re-submit while your previous submission is still pending approval, your new submission will overwrite the pending one.
