Viewing SPAs via Collaborator

Collaborator is an online portal that facilitates smoother working relationships by allowing trading partners to easily and securely share special pricing agreements (SPAs).

To view your SPAs within Collaborator, click on Deals in the green banner at the top of the page to navigate to the SPAs listing.

Navigating to the SPAs listing in Collaborator

The SPAs listing is the home page for existing SPAs with your trading partners, and displays the following:

  • SPA reference: The reference of your contract. Clicking on the reference opens the individual SPA in a new tab, where you can view a PDF and details of the SPA if the contract status is Ready for approval or Approved. Click here to learn more about navigating the SPA here.
  • Agreement name: A description of your contract.
  • Dates: The start and end date of your contract.
  • Period: Indicates the period the SPA is in. A new period (i.e. Period 2 onwards) is used when terms are changed for an existing SPA, when those terms apply to transactions from this date forward, for example if a distributor renegotiated a higher mechanism value on a product. If a SPA has been edited to have a new period, then the SPA will appear on the listing page multiple times for each period it has.
  • Distributor/Manufacturer: The relevant distributor or manufacturer on the contract.
  • End-customer(s): The selected end-customers or any end-customer depending on the selection made on the contract.
  • Contract status: The current status of each contract, i.e. Draft, Ready for approval or Approved.

How to filter SPAs

The search bar allows you to refine the listing by searching a SPA reference or agreement name.

Additional filters can be used to narrow down results. The filters available are:

  • Trading partners (Distributors or Manufacturers): Search based on trading partners you hold agreements with by typing the trading partner reference or name. Click to select one or multiple trading partners.
  • End-customers: Search based on end-customers you hold agreements with by typing the end-customer reference or name. Click to select one or more end-customers.
  • Contract status: Filter by Draft, Ready for approval or Approved agreements.
  • Dates: Filters agreements within specified start and end dates.
  • Show active only: When enabled, only approved agreements which are valid for the current date are shown.
  • Show expiring only: When enabled, only approved agreements which are expiring in the next 60 days are shown.

To clear all existing filters, simply click Reset to show the default SPAs listing.
