|16||en-US||3||GET AN ACCESS|
Access to the B2B Portal can only be opened for companies referenced by GROUPE PSA, and whose COFOR (supplier code) is active in the Suppliers Database
A company present in the PSA Suppliers Database is referenced when it has been selected as a potential supplier. The company has been assigned a COFOR (GROUPE PSA internal supplier code), which has been forwarded by the Purchasing Department
A COFOR is active in the GROUPE PSA Suppliers Database if the company that has been assigned the code still exists as a legal entity.
If these 2 prerequisites are met, the following process is used to open access to the B2B Portal:
Request for access to the GROUPE PSA Information Systems for the company
For companies that have an active COFOR but no B2B access, the B2B Portal webservice provides a form in which the person making the request must enter the name and contact details of the company's Legal Representative and a PLSA (B2B Administrator).
GROUPE PSA sends an e-mail addressed in name to the company's Legal Representative
Opening of access for the company and creation or updating of the PLSA B2B login
Confirmation is sent by e-mail to the Legal Representative and the PLSA.
|18||en-US||3||GET AN ACCESS|
Your company has been referenced by GROUPE PSA and you need to access the private area on the B2B Portal. This service is made for you!
Based on your company's COFOR, this service will check which stage your company is at in the process.

The service will check the following information:
For each stage
- Does the COFOR entered exist?

- Have we received and processed a request for access to the B2B Portal for this COFOR?
- Is the access operational?
- Has a PLSA (B2B Administrator) been designated for this COFOR?

| Category : INTRODUCE YOUR COMPANY (3)
|10||en-US||2||INTRODUCE YOUR COMPANY|
To work with GROUPE PSA, a company must be referenced in the Suppliers Database, since this allows the company to be recognised by all the GROUPE PSA information systems, from the initial consultation to the issuing of the order and invoices.
The first stage involves presenting the company. The process is carried out entirely online as follows:
Initialise a file for your company:Using the D-U-N-S® Number entered, this stage verifies that a file does not already exist for your company (in this case, it is not necessary to present your company again)
Complete the file: The information requested will enable GROUPE PSA to assess the benefits of including your company among our partners. Some information is mandatory.
Send the file to GROUPE PSAThis electronic transfer validates the data you have entered. Only after this stage does your company become eligible for referencing in the future.
The Purchasing Department remains the sole decision-maker concerning the inclusion of suppliers in its panel.
> Download Guide <
|12||en-US||2||INTRODUCE YOUR COMPANY|
The D-U-N-S® Number is mandatory for initialising your company file.
This number is international and specific to each company. At this stage of the process, it acts as a unique identification criterion: if we already have a file containing the same D-U-N-S® Number, a second one cannot be opened.
What to do in this case! Click here
|14||en-US||2||INTRODUCE YOUR COMPANY|
When initialising your company file, you must enter an e-mail address, which will be used as the user name to re-open and complete your file during the company presentation phase.
To ensure the information contained in the Suppliers Database is as up-to-date as possible (and completely unique), a check is carried out on the e-mail address; if the address is already known by the database, it cannot be re-used.
This situation may arise in several cases:
- You recently presented a company, but have not yet had a response from the PSA Peugeot Citroën Purchasing Department.
If you wish to modify an important piece of information, contact the application support service (click on the application's "contact" link to obtain the relevant e-mail address), or the B2B Portal assistance (form available opposite).
If you wish to present another company, separate from the first, you must simply use a different e-mail address.
- You belong to a company that is already referenced and wish to access your file.
In this case, you must go via the private area on the B2B Portal, using a personal B2B login. If you do not yet have a B2B login, use the "Obtain an access" service.
| Category : The authentication window displayed again (1)
|20||en-US||6||The authentication window displayed again|
The authentication process checks 2 pieces of information:
- Does the B2B login entered correspond to a valid user name in the B2B Portal user directory?
- If yes, does the password correspond exactly to the password registered for this B2B login?
If one of the checks returns an error, the security system redisplays the authentication window.
In what situations may this occur?
- the B2B login entered has been deleted
- the B2B login entered is suspended
- the B2B login entered is blocked (this situation is usually due to non-compliance with the procedure for closing the browser following a change of password)
- the B2B login has been entered incorrectly
- the password has been entered incorrectly (respecting upper and lower cases is important)
What can you do?
If you do not manage to complete the authentication after several attempts, we recommend reinitialising the password. Use the "password forgotten" link on the Portal HomePage and complete the form: once you have entered and sent the information, a diagnosis of your situation will be displayed at the top of the form, with details about who you should contact.
