Creating Catalog Price Lists for Each Branch
Prior to establishing the import, a catalog price list must be created for each branch.
Select the Application tab in Administration ➡️ Click the Lists subsection
From the Lists drop down, choose Catalog Price List
A new Catalog Price List can be created by clicking the blue New Button in the upper right. Create a Price List for each branch using the SiteOne integration. It’s standard for the name of the price list to share the name of the branch.
Click Save for each new Catalog Price List.
Assigning the Catalog Price Lists for Each Branch
Select the Organization tab in Administration ➡️ then select the Branches subsection
Click into the branch and assign the catalog price list specific to the branch in the Catalog List dropdown.
Importing the SiteOne Price Book
Scroll to the bottom of the screen in the branch record and check the Import SiteOne Price Book checkbox.
For each branch, enter the exact store number for each type that applies to that branch.
📌 Not all branches will have the same SiteOne store numbers, so it is important to double-check that your store numbers are correct with SiteOne. Aspire will load catalog items into the item catalog to be made available when estimating.
📌 All categories are not required. For example: The user can decide to only import Irrigation Items and leave the other categories blank.
After entering store numbers on the branch record, click Save at the top right. Aspire displays a browser window that directs to the SiteOne website to log in.
💡 The price that comes over from SiteOne is the discounted price.
💡 For the SiteOne login page to open, pop ups have to be permitted for SiteOne site.
💡 The catalog import happens overnight. If the import is established today, catalog items will be available the next day. Items imported from SiteOne are assigned a branch based on setup. To verify the number of catalog items that have synced, you can review the Status field, which will display after a sync is completed.
Syncing Multiple Branches In A Row
Go to the first branch in Aspire, setup the integration as above, and click Save. When the SiteOne portal is displayed to login, use the SiteOne account specific to that Aspire branch.
On the separate tab in the same browser, navigate back to the SiteOne portal and log out.
Close the browser.
Open the browser back up, and repeat step one for the second branch. (So on and so forth for the remaining branches.)
Finding SiteOne Items In the Item Catalog
Once the import is complete, you can verify the import has occurred.
In Administration, click the Estimating tab ➡️ then click Item Catalog
SiteOne items can be identified in the Items catalog list by filtering for field name of Vendor Catalog and Value of SiteOne
If items show at the right prices, the import has worked correctly.
Estimating With SiteOne Items
When adding items to an estimate, a standard search will display items from the SiteOne vendor catalog.
If the user would prefer to see a list of only SiteOne items when searching items, click the magnifying glass in item search.
In the Catalog Item Search screen, apply a filter for Vendor Catalog and select SiteOne. Selecting only SiteOne, will then show only SiteOne items.
Last, click Save.
Reestablishing SiteOne Sync
Recently, the refresh token for your SiteOne sync was disabled due to a functionality upgrade. To receive nightly updates, the sync needs to be reestablished.
To do this:
Go to the branch set up for SiteOne and uncheck the Import SiteOne Price Book checkbox so that the system removes all your store numbers.
Click the Save Icon.
If you are a multi-Branch company, you will need to perform this task for each branch and follow the multiple branch setup instructions.
